At one time there was an equivalent of the Icehouse in every city in the United States. It had a bar, served beer, and had domino tables, pool tables and served both men and women. It was a social center where the gossip of the day prevailed and recreation was offered.
I am off to the chapel to hear Christmas Music. This is the time of year when one hears the traditional songs. I can remember when we had limited choir at the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Friendswood. Even so, the Christmas music was inspiring.
