Thread Name: Sitting At The Kitchen Table
Subject: RE: BS: Sitting At The Kitchen Table
Jerry, what a wonderful thread. As you know from experience, our kitchen table is the heart of our home. We play music there frequently for several reasons: Good acoustics, good light which if you are old like me makes reading lyrics for new songs a pleasure, we also like to snack on chips (crisps for our Brit friends) as well as have a place to set a cup of coffee or a glass of wine down when playing.

In the last 24 hours, our kitchen table was the source of preparation of a new recipe with brussels sprouts, the bottling of about a gallon of my red wine vinegar to give friends, and last evening some friends came over to play dominoes also on the table.

I also always plan my trips on the kitchen table where I can lay out maps, have good lighting and it is just the right place for the job! I love the kitchen table. Everyone's kitchen table. It is where I think you really get to know people. Our family all assemble in the kitchen whenever they visit. I can't think of a better place to meet catters than the kitchen table. Even this virtual one already seems just, somehow..right. Ruth, could I bother you for a cup of coffee, hon?
