I knew a guy at work a long time ago who kept a "Crosser" file. So, just what is a "Crosser"? I wasn't totally convinced that I wanted to know when he asked me if I'd like to see his...

According to his definition, "Crossers" are those designated church pianists and/or organists who when  caught up in the spirit of their music, would play with such verve and gusto that invariably, they would cross their hands in sweeping, dramatic gestures on the keyboard.

His collection of "Crossers" were just photos of people that he imagined 'getting into it' at the keyboard on Sundays.

Most were gleaned from obituaries, and looked a lot like this lady...

Anyway, when I came across this email of "Church Ladies With Typewriters" the other day, it reminded me of he and his Crosser file. I just had to share it...
