Thinking of hymns makes me want to learn to sing to shape note notation. I must look up how I can do that. I know there is a festival in April each year in Fort Worth.

Sometimes I wish that visitors to our state could go to things like old-time gospel music gatherings, or
small town high school football games. They're so much more rich and vibrant than big macs and margaritas.
