A Bit of Grace
The first recording is Dad saying grace at a family event in, as it appears on the file timestamp, early July 2014.
Dad's grace is a highlight of family events for me. It always strikes me as simple but complete. I'm not sure what the event was...perhaps someone else has a better memory. You can see most of those there in the transcript. It appears there were a dozen of us. Also, I probably made a mistake telling Dad that I was recording him. He scrambles the grace a bit...the only time I've ever heard him do that. Next time, I'll sneak up on him. (Or, possibly, it's some sort of buffer overload.) Anyway, this time, I've altered the transcript to match his standard last sentences.
[Warning - turn the sound down to half volume. I clearly need to learn to do more with sound editing than simply snipping out segments.]
The second recording is the Johnny Appleseed Grace from the July 2014 Potter Reunion. Appropriately, it starts chaotically and lurches into harmony.
