Out of the mouths of babes
One of the teachers had a kindergartner come up to her and say that he found a frog. The teacher asked if the frog was alive or dead. The student said it was dead. The teacher asked how he knew. The boy said, “I pissed in its ear.” The horrified teacher said, “You what?” The little boy innocently said, “you know, I went to his ear and said, ’PSST!’ and it didn’t move. So it must be dead.”

I was just wondering…Why did kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
Why does your nose run and your feet smell?
If a turtle loses its shell is it naked or homeless?
If pro is the opposite of con, is progress the opposite of congress?

From the Sheridan Community Chorus Choir Loft
Yes, we are going to get together as a group to plan our future (yes, there is a future). All “friends and members” of The Sheridan Community Chorus are invited...singers & non-singers alike! I would like to have our potluck dinner/meeting on a Saturday evening. How about 5:00 pm? Would anyone be willing to step forward and organize this for me? Please get back to me with a suggested date.

Famous Quotes“The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase.”

“There is one thing that freezes a musician more than the deadliest physical cold,
and that is the spiritual chill of an unresponsive audience!”
~ John Philip Sousa

Name that instrument
This instrument used to be called the “sackbut.” It is found in the brass section
and is unusual as it is not operated by pistons.
