Lovin' The Band

I wish I didn't have to park. I wish I could just get my car to be where it needed to be by blinking.

No pulling in far enough. No making sure I pulled far enough over to leave room for the other car. Nothing.

I hate parking. 30 years and I still suck at it. Even my 16 year old is better than me. He now walks away shaking his head. That's not a good sign.


From Nina I have this GREAT band video. Some of you may have seen it.

Get to 35 seconds... you can start to see what's going to happen, I could tell by the drumline. By 1:40, I thought I might want to play the cymbals. By 2:00 I knew for sure...

Hahaha...my friend emailed this to me a couple of days ago and said, "this must be like porn for band geeks"

This brought back memories of my middle son's first year in band. He played the symbols. Everyone watched him and laughed because his faced would tighten up as he concentrated on the precise moment and then he looked like he was going to kill someone. It was hysterical. The next year he was put in the drum line.
