Suddenly Feeling the Love

Glad I don't work on a certain a/c... in particular the low turbine.

I've been eating Advil to stave off a migraine all week. It's all work induced. I've got a little voodoo doll at work that I change the name on throughout the week.

It's become a bit of a joke at work.

No more.

Feeling very blessed today. Oh yes I am.

Advil wouldn't cut it with that problem.



I had four members of a brass quintet in my home this evening practicing as Dallas Brass is in town practicing with the kids' band tomorrow.

I had them practice on the back porch so the sound would carry, instead of bouncing around inside my home.

They were practicing Won't You Come Home, Bill Bailey. I taped it on my cell phone, but Bones put it on the iPad. I'll transfer it to Youtube later so I can post it.

They sounded pretty good considering...

I'm excited for T, taking some real lessons from one of the best brass players in the Nation. He's been branching out lately, playing trombone for one of the local Presbyterian Churches that has a GREAT concert band and Jazz band.

For the first time... he's happy. He is starting to enjoy is instrument. I love that.

Ringo's Eagle Scout project is coming along. He's been crazy busy going every day after school, hauling stones, pulling up old stones, preparing the ground.

Tomorrow he starts to lay the stones for real, the tilling, raking and smoothing complete. He has the sand and is ready.

I've been taking pictures. That's my job while they boys do the heavy lifting. Scouts we don't normally see have been volunteering to help so Sunday afternoon promises to be busy.

They intend to have it finished by Sunday at 5PM.

It's going well. I'm proud of him.

He also made his final choice and he is going to UCF. He has chosen to stay closer to home, 2.5 hours away as opposed to 7. That's fine. He just needs to find a place where he is happy so he will thrive.

Four months and he leaves home...

I'll make sure he has a home cooked meal on occasion, if he's up for it.

Oh Thank God! The last thing the world needs is another Obnoxious Gator fan. Go Ringo!
