Yesterday, I got a somewhat long-awaited announcement on Facebook that my ten-year high school reunion will be occurring in late May or early/mid-June. There is a one-and-a-half-out-of-three chance that I will be able to attend. If it’s on the weekend of Memorial Day, I have to make a tough decision as to whether to do this or Bike The Drive, though I will probably choose the reunion. If it is June 6, I should be able to. But June 20 is absolutely off-limits. My reason will be in my blog post tomorrow.
However, given that it is Monday, and I was not immediately with a post idea, I will join the Blog Hop of #4M (Monday’s Music Moves Me.) With the previous paragraph as inspiration, I want to head back even further a few years. When I was in middle school, my favorite exposure to music came from my band class. Therefore, here are some of the highlights of what I played:
One of my favorite songs from eighth grade band. At the 2-minute mark, Mr. Schulz gave us the mnemonic “Telephone doolittle pizza, stop, telephone stop” for the pattern of notes (listen to the reeds).
A song that I had stuck in my head for a long time after playing it, but had forgotten the name of it until not too long ago.
Another of my favorites from eighth grade band.
The first song I played in jazz band in middle school. Also known as the “dah-dut-dut-dah-dut” song.
Played it in a band contest, and afterwards, went for a picnic with Mom and Levi. That was fun!
Today is the four-hundred and fourteenth day of Mission 441. Twenty-seven days remain.
