Halloo Myrna Loy,
We will be singing the lovely "Hatches , Matches and Dispatches" if someone
will only send me the music. Although maybe we can wing it, right parrot

didn't seem at all interested in my participation in this event, which
seemed rather parochial to me, so I'll stick to me' music.
Myrna, also practice "Let the Lower Lights be Burning " for the reception.
