YOU CAN TAKE A GIRL OUT OF THE COUNTRY...

On Monday night Ian and I attended the Mormon Tabernacle Choir concert held in Toronto.  We were asked some time before if we would be willing to be host to a couple of dignitaries attending.  This entailed entertaining them at the reception held before the concert, making sure they received a complimentary cd, helping them to their seats, and just making sure they enjoyed the evening.  Ian and I were to be hosts to Vivienne Poy and Jean Augustine along with their guests.  Both women were absolutely delightful to spend time with and we thoroughly enjoyed the few hours we accompanied them.  The concert was amazing and after one particularly rousing number I rose to my feet, cupped my hands to my mouth and shouted "woo hoo!". I was not the only one in the audience to do so but I was the only one in our company.  Oops.   Not thinking, I did it at the end of the concert as well, proof that you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl.  I wonder if we will  be asked to host again.
