A Prayer of Thanksgiving

 

 

Go resignedly to the folks,’ remembering it’s just for a few hours. Though you must make appearances at her side as well as your own, eat with as much relish as you can muster, for this, too, shall pass. Choose carefully your words, gingerly stepping around your cousin Ruth’s latest fiasco with the Arthur Murray instructor, and ask not about Marlene.
Let on not that you have heard the stories before, and utter them not aloud simultaneously nor anticipate the punch lines. Chew with vigor and bite thy tongue, for the bird hath been cooked since Tuesday, yet praise it tenderly for it never heard a compliment in life. Be sage about the dressing though you know not the origin of the little hard things; should you bite into the wedding band, return it with discretion. Though it resemble syrup, pour not the Manishewitz on the sherbet.

Avoid your Uncle Lou; he is vexatious to the spirit. Kick not your little brother under the table, rather show the forbearance of the season and pound him later. Picture Naomi and the kids as alien life-forms, and learn from them. Shout not at Gram, for she heareth what she chooseth. Though you take on much wine, sing not The Barber of Seville nor show undue attention to your niece, who has become quite the young lady. If belch thou must, let it not herald the start of a contest. Mince no words over the piece of pie which passeth all understanding.

Above all, say nothing on the ride home, even though the temptation to cite what might have happened but didn’t be great. For that give silent thanks, resolving to firm up those plans for Aruba over Christmas.
Amen

Whad’ya Know at a House of a Guy’s Own for all your Leftovers!

The Leftovers. What to do with them?

No, I don’t mean the turkey legs & gizzards, pumpkin pie slivers or the stuffing with unidentified foreign objects–I mean the family in from Up North, the Illinois flatlanders, or Hank, Jean and the kids from Keokuk.

You say they’re still here–and it’s Saturday–Whad’ya Do?

Why, drop them off and leave them for a couple of hours at Whad’ya Know at A House of A Guy’s Own, 1215 Drake St. in Madison, Saturday, November 25th at 10 am to Noon–they’ll have a chance to meet the Feldman leftovers, some from Sterling some from Dixon, Land of Lincoln, headlined by the amazing Gramski Norma Wolens, who at 92 has circled the globe 1,016 times on her stationary bike, and, of course, the Feldman girls, Ellie and Nora who promise to recreate one of their famous battles over who took my thing that clamps your eyelashes!

But wait, there’s more–our special guest is Marc Kornblatt, director, producer, editor, and cinematographer of the Michael Feldman epic, “Whad’ya Do Now?” which has been called Dr. Caligari meets Beach Blanket Bingo! He’s not one of these Hollywood producers, so no worries!

All this and kosher donuts, non-denominational coffee and a chance to play the Whad’ya Know Quiz to win fabulous prizes from the huge backlog of remaindered Feldman books, games, and merch.

If this doesn’t send them packing for the Hinterlands nothing will, and they’ll be sleeping in the kids room forever!

If you can’t make them do it, just put all the screens in the house on the Whad’ya Know Podcast page on Saturday morning at 10–that will at least keep them occupied for a couple of precious hours!

Whad’ya Know at A House of A Guys Own–it’s better than making Santa’s sleigh out of turkey bones!

Whad’ya Know!  The wonderful Tracy Jane Comer lights up A House of A Guy’s Own,  Saturday, November 4, so all y’all should make a point of coming by the hut, 1215 Drake Street, Madison, where the (back) door opens at 9:30 am.

You shouldn’t need any more convincing than this gorgeous rendition of ‘There is a Time’ from Tracy’s appearance with Common Chord on our show at the High Noon.

Born in Cream City: John Sieger (music) Michael Feldman (words)

John Sieger wasn’t actually born in Milwaukee, aka Cream City, but has now lived there (a few blocks from the Feldman duplex on 58th & Center) long enough to qualify as native. I, on the other hand, was, ask St. Joseph’s Hospital, so I have the right to say anything I want about Milwaukee in song or invective, whether Uptown (our neck of the woods, all alleys and car lots) Downtown, Pole Town (trust me, the preferred title) or the Industrial Valley. Cream, btw, as in cream-colored bricks, sourced from clay along the banks of the Menomonee, which went into everything from breweries to lighthouses, although they collected dirt (as Mom might have said) so this little tune could easily have gone “Born in Ash City, where I was collected.” And who wants to rise to the top of an ash heap?

From the folk-period of the 40 year Sieger-Feldman collab, or as we call it, SiegFeld Follies.

Johnny will be singin’ away at Whad’ya Know from A House of A Guy’s Own, Saturday, Oct 7, 10 am (the slot we still own).

Come on down to 1215 Drake St, Madison, or boot on up to facebook.com/whadyaknow.net/ & call-in for fabulous prizes.

Don’t get skimmed–rise to the top!
