BATTLE OF THE BANDS AT OAK VILLAGE NURSING HOME

By Carolyn Krebbs

Flo and Eunice sat in their rocking chairs, whiling away the afternoon.

"Who is the greatest death-metal band in all of Finland?" Flo asked Eunice.

"Oh my stars, that's easy," Eunice replied, taking a sip of iced tea. "Oksennus Saatana, of course."

"Right you are," Flo said politely, knowing full well that no one rocked harder than Hautausmaa Ulostus, a fact that would gnaw at the 92-year-old for the rest of the day.

(The insufferable Carolyn Krebbs would like to dedicate her latest story to her beloved Pomeranian, Pinot Grigio.)

It's hard for me to imagine old ladies listening to death metal. :)

I'm having a sweepstakes at my blog. The prize is a piece of my artwork. Leave a comment under the post that talks about the sweepstakes to be entered. Good luck!

Clearly, Stacey has never heard Paavo Paasilinna thresh on the six string, while Jyrki Uosukainen throats the second verse of Sirkka Hamalainen - like warm apple pie for the ear.

Warm, rotten apple pie, which has traveled by barge down the river Styx.

Styx isn't death metal.
