Howllelujah Chorus

“Ole Shreve Stockton had a farm EEEE-I-EEEE-I-OOOOO”
…and on this farm she had a cow, E-I-E-I-Ohhhhhhhhhhhh

See, Chloe – you can make the glass shake with your voice… Bet Mom’s lens is loose after that one.

And when you sing, sing boldly.  (But you might have to know the reference – I think it was Martin Luther who said “and when you sin, sin boldly.”)

Eli:  ”You guys are SO full of hot air!”

• • • The way these two look, in this photo, is exactly how each of them sound.  It’s like the visual of the aural…. and it’s up to you to name it!  Please leave your title or caption in the comment section of this post; you’ll be in the running to win a signed copy of my book! {and I promise to record them howling soon!  click here for a recording of Charlie, Eli, and me, in the meantime!)

    We’ve had the coyotes singing with accompaniment by some local dogs. It’s amazing and beautiful and wild. Sometimes they’re close and it feels like the air is vibrating. Sometimes it’s distance – more like a wild whisper.
