Recently, while going through an airport during one of his many trips, President Bush encountered a man with long gray hair and beard, wearing a white robe and sandals, holding a staff.
President Bush went up to the man and said " Has anyone told you that you look like Moses?" The man didn't answer. He just kept staring straight ahead. The president said, 'Moses!' in a loud voice. The man just stared ahead, never acknowledging the President.
The President pulled a Secret Service Agent aside and, pointing to the robed man, asked him, 'Am I crazy or does That man not look like Moses to you?' The Secret Service agent looked at the man and agreed. 'Well,' said the president, 'every time I say his name, he ignores me and stares straight ahead, refusing to speak .
Watch!' Again the president Yelled, 'Moses!' and again the man ignored him. The Secret Service agent went up to the man in the white robe and whispered, 'You look just like Moses. Are you Moses?'
The bearded man leaned over and whispered back, 'Shhhh! Yes, I am Moses. The last time I talked to a bush, I spent forty years wandering in the desert and ended up leading my people to the only spot in the entire Middle East with no oil.'
We had a great rehearsal in Sheridan last night (6/17)...it's always fun when we have a "gathering" of all the voices (well, at least most of them).
The next time our entire ensemble is combined will be Saturday, 6/28 for the Willowfest concert at Willow Creek winery in Sheridan. Listed in the "top 10 fireworks in the U.S.A." We need everyone near the stage by 8:00 pm.
The Sheridan group will sing at Heritage Village nursing facility in Gerry, NY on Tuesday 6/24...report time is 6:00 - 6:30 pm.
