One Sunday morning several of the kids told John that they wanted to put on a folk mass. John's response: "What's a folk mass?" (...more)
Yeah yeah yeah - what can I say - I found myself in one of those reflective nostalgic moods the other day. You know, sometimes it takes a few decades' perspective to fully appreciate things that we experience - especially if those things happen while we're in the throws of becoming young men and young women - a time some of us spent doing little more than demonstrating our genius for accomplishing things which would serve only to embarrass us later in life :-). For me, and perhaps a few others, In His Name was such an experience - something, amidst all the foolishness, I can look back on with fondness and pride - but it's funny --- I remember so much - and so little ...
So! -- I've started a small "IHN Remembered" site.
...Ok - Ok - so how about some really really off beat stuff - pardon - like a little peek into that most BIZARRE practice of ...
... I mean - there WERE a couple of folks in the group that were so inclined - even way back then when the world was so much more innocent (errrhemmm) -- and a few of you STILL do this -- yup -- I know -- for sure -- I saw you at the reunion!!! So I started again too -- OH NO!! Kicker picked up the guitar again after 18 years of abstinence!! Well - comic relief can be a good thing. (sorry y'all - had to include it)
HEY!! - Does anyone still have any tapes of old IHN services or concerts? - Wouldn't it be a KICK to make some of these available on the site as Real Audio streaming files - HA HA HA :-))
ANYWAY!! Morgan sent me an old shot of the group!! I think it must be from a Sunrise Service we did - maybe even pre IHN proper? And below Morgan's is one that Mama Grout sent (gotta be a reunion shot! :-)
You can click either picture to see a larger view. --- How many folks below can YOU still name :-))
WOW!! - this mid-life crisis stuff is a goober!!! huh? --- now when do I get my little red sports car?? -- just kidding Erik --- WAIT!! :-\ Did I say that out loud??
Now all I have to do is think about how all this stuff should look and play around a bit --- all thoughts, comments and CONTRIBUTIONS will be greatly appreciated - REALLY!! - I'm stretched a little thin on time these days so ANY help will be GREAT!! --- (Dena wants me to make sure you understand that I mean site content, pictures, words and maybe a little elbow grease - not money - ROTFL!!!
For Example: I could use some ideas - or even a finished graphic or two for the top right corners of the the GUESTBOOK and CALENDAR pages --- those little Kicker and tree thingies I'm using there now just don't cut it. --- Linda?? :-))
I'd really like to add a "Then & Now" section where we can show old and new pictures of us (if you don't have electronic pics - send me hardcopies - I'll scan and return the hardcopies to you) - wha-da-ya think? UPDATE!! I've added some "Then&Now" pisc to the guestbook entries (for those of you who have sigened it, that is - ahemmmm --- I guess we can use the Guestbook to list our favorite memories and such --- also be sure to let us all know what's been happening for these last - what - 25 - 30 years - Whew!!
Anyway - drop me a note - or drop by and chat --- see ya!
