I have a full day ahead. Eustacia has asked to come home for the weekend, not because she misses her parents, mind you, but because she misses her cats. So, I'll leave here mid-afternoon to go fetch her.
Between now and then, I have some work projects to tend to and some practicing to do before tomorrow morning's rehearsal. This is what goes on in my horn case while I'm busy playing through music. I'm sure my horn is the only one with valve slides covered in cat hair.
I also have written a piece for Small Town Newspaper that I will obsessively polish before submitting. In case you're interested, or even if you aren't, here is a link to my piece in today's edition. It's even got a couple of comments from online readers.
I don't write on subjects that warrant much online commenting like last night's speech delivered so masterfully by Barak Obama. Any place that subject appears this morning, you'll find all kinds of opinions for or against. But basically I think people are just spouting off the praises and criticisms they have memorized over the last several months. That man could have read his grocery list and still the response might have been the same—that's how entrenched I believe people are in what they believe and in what they want to happen in November. It's the growing number of independents both candidates are focused on at this point, and those are the people I want to hear from today.
How did I get on that subject? I have no idea. Oh yeah, online comments. So, here I go to get started on my full day. I hope you all enjoy your three-day weekend, unless you live overseas, in which case, you've got just two days to catch your breath.
