Eileen is off to see her Mom and fam. They are celebrating her Mom’s 94th birthday (I believe that’s right). I didn’t go because my hives seem to have gotten worse.

I contacted my doctor yesterday, asking if there was anything that could be done about my hives sooner than the October appoint I have with a dermatologist. No response.  This morning I emailed her my BP readings for the past three weeks as she asked me to. No response to that yet, either.

Despite my valiant efforts to keep track of  my reading, I’m not certain where I found this title. It most likely was in the bibliography of the papers on Georgian Psalmody I finished reading.

Nye was a 18th century village musician who wrote this little story of his life. In his introduction, Vic Gammon, editor, describes Nye as “a self-educated Calvinist-poet, musician, composer, instrument maker, agricultural laborer, quarry worker, and for thirty years, gardener at Ashcombe House, which is to the west of Lewis, near the village of Kingston, East Sussex.”
