Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

~  Work:  Some people never cease to amaze me.  And that's all I'm going to say about that.

~  I went to Community Band Practice on Wednesday night;  I'm surprised there aren't more people there.  We're playing one of my all-time songs:  Chorale and Shaker.  It just so happens that we played the last part of  it on the field my freshman year in high school.

~  I auditioned for a flute choir in town.  I was pretty nervous and flubbed up part of my "prepared" piece, which I wasn't prepared for.  I just knew I was going to be asked to play one of the scales that I've all of a sudden started having trouble with.  Luckily I didn't have to play that one.  (WHEW!)  I had to sight read a couple of pieces by myself, then play a duet with another player.  Guess I did okay...I'm in!  

~  I've had so many IEP meetings lately, that when I don't have to be at school at 7:15 I feel like I'm forgetting something.

~  This week was "Gator Hater" week in these parts.  There was a segment on the news warning fans to not rush the field if UT should win.  Back in '98, fans stormed the field, tore down the goalpost, and carried it onto "the Strip".  If they try to do it this year, they will be charged with aggravated criminal trespassing, and if  someone tries to get someone to storm the field, they will be charged with  "inciting a riot".  Gameday will be in town, and, to add to the excitement around the Small Town, the placekicker who will be starting this week graduated with MS.



  1. I love when game day comes to town. I love the way Washington state makes sure their flag is at every one.

  2. Sounds like you might work with a few clowns short of circus.
    Congrats on your flute work.
    Hope the fans don't get criminal.

  3. Congratulations on making the flute choir.

  4. I think the Vols have a great chance to beat the Gators this time around and I HOPE I didn't just jinx them by saying that!

  5. I played the clarinet since 4th grade. I can remember quite a few times freezing up from nerves. Glad to here you made the flute choir! Happy weekend!

  6. Congratulations on the flute choir! Sounds like school is fully back in swing--almost as though there had never been a vacation!

  7. Congrats on the flute choir - that's awesome!!!

    Work -I hear ya!

    We have the same "do not rush the field" rules too - I'll have to take some photos of the ridiculousness that ensues to ensure the goal posts do not come's ridiculous.

  8. Watched the game last night and am so sorry it ended like it did. I was pulling for Big Orange. Congrats on the flute audition. I am impressed.

  9. Congratulations on your flute skills. What an accomplishment!
