On A Lighter Note

Reno erat Rudolphus

This has been making the rounds of the interwebs. Who knew Reno was an actual Latin word? Not this former Latin scholar.

Prayers Please

For Phyllis Young, who had gall bladder surgery today.

For Kristin, Tim, and all other members of RPC who are under the weather. (Remember: call Kathy and stay home if you're sick! No sense in infecting the rest of the choir.)

And in a related prayer, for there to be enough basses to sing on Christmas morning.

It has been rescheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7 at 9 AM. If you haven't done so already, please inform Kathy whether you can make it or not, yea or nay.

Until then, snow tires or chains are required on all propers.

From the RPC Snow Panic Desk

Courtesy of winter storm Cleon (whatever), snow is in the forecast for tomorrow (Tuesday, Dec. 3), albeit mostly in the morning. Herewith Kathy's thoughts on the subject:
Conditions vary widely depending upon where you live.  It is not uncommon to have several inches of snow at my place in Mogul and for there to be dry conditions or just a dusting of snow in town or elsewhere.  Our membership is really spread out: Mogul/Somerset, Panther Valley, Hidden Valley, Washoe Valley, Spanish Springs and everything in between.  In addition, there are varying levels of driving skill and ability to safely drive in less than good conditions.

I really cannot completely cancel rehearsals at this point.  There are only three remaining before Christmas.  So, you have to make your own call.  What I do require is that you let me know if you decide not to come to rehearsal.  Don’t be alarmed if I do not answer the phone, especially if you call after 5 PM on Tuesday. . . . Just leave a message. 
By the way, these announcements just in (oh, I'm sorry, just "een") to the RPC Snow Panic Desk:
  • Solesmes Monastery, all evening classes cancelled.
  • Torculus Middle School, opening two hours late.
  • Podatus (lighten up on the) High, opening two hours late.
  • Kevin Allen's School of Really Complicated Ordinaries, opening two hours late.
  • Oregon Catholic Press, liberal leave policy in effect, and all evening Kumbaya hand-holding group singings cancelled.
  • Nuemes On Wheels will not operate, so use your emergency "four-hymn sandwiches."
If you must chant today, take it extremely slow. :-)
