I think I’ve mentioned before that I sing male harmony with the worship team at my local church. We where give a great honor. We were asked to lead worship at the annual district conference. On one had it required us to pack all our equipment in to a small space and make two runs of 1 hour and 15 minutes twice…first road trip we’ve ever made…on the other hand …what a rush…we are an octet…leader on guitar…bass guitar…percussionist/violinist…keyboards…soprano lead…female harmony singer…and me… any vocal part that’s left…and our sound man…

I have been in musical groups for over 54 years…but the last 2 days…with out regrets my high point…tonight N and I knit the best harmonies we ever have…can’t decide…maybe yesterday the flow was better…tonight the mix was better…it is what it is…not to mention that B our high lead was absolutely on her game…

I’ve mentioned this before but music, vocal music defines me…

The worship team I sing with at my local church has been requested to lead worship at the district conference…both an honor and a huge responsibility…it will be the first time we’ve traveled…

Distressing call from my D tonight…sorry no details

I got a call from an old fiend today…(old is both figuratively and literally)…he’s 90 and I’ve know him for 41 years…I had lunch with him a month or so ago…and the slip in the last few weeks was apparent…

As I know his kin I made some calls…my best hope is I over reacted…

He has been a friend for 41 years and my boss for 35 years…but it never felt that way…it always felt like we were co-workers…

Over the years we have had our …spats…but I’ve never kept score who won/lost…he is an amazing man…and the world will suffer a great lose when he departs…

While I was checking my blog tonight I realized that I’m approaching 5 years of entries…who would have thought…and although my frequency of posts of late have been light I’m amazed that this has held my interest this long…
I am a big fan of completive reality shows…not the vote off the island type but where the peeps are judged …”fairly”…at least most times…I must admit that they must sell the show and at times personality…either negative or positive does play a factor…but Howie is gone on Top Chef…cycle 3…finally…I would have never picked a chef with that attitude to begin with…
