2016 Old Folks Day

At the risk of jinxing the record, as far as we can remember there have been only two rainy Old Folks Days since the early 1960's making it necessary to move the dinner-on-the-grounds indoors. (To be honest, we don't remember them because we were toddlers.) 2016 did not stray from the norm - no humidity, mild temperatures, and a few puffy white clouds made for a glorious feast under the legendary oak trees in the church yard and a singing in the sanctuary that made Dutch Cove ring once again with shaped-note singing in the Blue Ridge style.
