      (The party is heard in the distance, and T walks out with her cane slowly onto the porch, .  She listens for a moment, then closes the door behind her so the sounds are more muted and yes, she still has that Southern accent)

Party.  What a wonderful sound a party has......almost like a symphony.  Or an overture to a starts the musicians warm up......and there are no guests yet, just you and family and friends and helpers gettin all the party things together.

The too much food, and too many drinks to prepare.  The decorations.  Almost as important as the food, but not quite.  The wind section......the strings.....then the guests start to arrive....and the percussion chimes in.....conversations begin, and the food is fresh, because no has taken those first bites.

The ones in the kitchen do not count of course......the children who sneak the lick of icing off the cake, and steal the pieces of meat from the cuttin board.  The dogs who somehow always manage to get underfoot and grab what falls below.

As I age not so gracefully, it somehow seems as if all the parties are meldin together....cannot recall my earliest because I was first remembered parties are as a little girl with the excitement of guests and eatin and more guests and more eatin......, then the ones of growin up, with young men, and all that brings.....followed by of course the biggest party - the weddin, and the the baby christenings and the assorted childrens gatherings, so different from the other side of the party - the makin rather than the takin......

Until we come full party, asleep again I will be...

Funny how there can be such happy and such sad all in the same few was a lovely party........

         (Sighs.  Stands with difficulty)

.I hope there will be a lot of food.......
