Concert

The month of May is going to kill me. Just too much going on. I know you are sick of hearing it. We did have a little comic relief last night. Johnny had a school band concert. He plays drums. Lately he plays the timpani drums specifically. They are the big kettle drums. He is very good if I do say so myself. They have a band teacher who loves to lecture. He lectured the parents before the concert began on good concert etiquette. Tedious. Very large fellow w/a serious wedgie that we, the audience are forced to look at throughout the concert. About midway through the concert, between songs, he took a step up on a riser which emitted a loud farting noise. This caused the 7th grade band to dissolve into fits of laughter that they were unable to control. I was a little nervous for them. Luckily even the teacher found it amusing so they all got it out of their system and moved on to the next number. Fun.

Sounds like a fun concert, Mary!

Do you think the band teacher should keep time with little pumps here and there?

Timpani drums! Does Johnny practice at home?

LOL! That would be amusing Cream.

Johnny keeps muttering something about what is the use of knowing the timpani drum. You and Dad aren't going to spend $1000 for that. He's got that right! The teachers suggests practicing at home on 2 large pillows and he does. Works fine. He owns a ratty old drum set and we will get him a new for his birthday.

How young did he start? John is DESPERATE to get Gideon a guitar, a drumset, a mandolin, a piano - I don't know, they can probably learn SOMETHING young, right?

Sounds cute - but what else do you have going on to stress you out? And can you ship the kids to camp & take a week off this summer?

It's always fun when something happens that makes a whole crowd laugh because they just can't help it.
