Heard through the open window on a balmy, 70 degree evening:
The calming sounds of a nearly perfect rendition of Randy Travis’ classic “Forever and Ever Amen“, and the gentle, deep breathing of a placid child. Followed by a distinct ‘thunk’ as said child’s head was introduced to the side of the crib.
What can I say? I was working left-handed, and the little sack of potatoes shifted in my arms. The crying only lasted for a few seconds.
