Kids never cease to amaze me. I was at an anniversery party yesterday and two kids that I used to babysit were there with their parents. They both happened to plunk their plates of goodies down on the table that I was sitting at in the corner. I asked them "how are you?" and they both responded. The little girl, 7 now, said "I remember you!" and I responded "Do you?! I used to babysit you guys," then her 9 year old brother piped in "Kelsey??!? What did you do with your glasses?" It's funny how kids remember these details! What can I remember from when I was 9.....I broke my arm. I remember that quite well. Frozen vegetables have never been a better thing!

Today I got in 4 hours of practicing and it's still plausible that I could do another 60-90 minutes!!! It's been a good day. Ah, I miss those blisters of long practice hours. :)

I leave for Vancouver tomorrow where my time will be taken up with practicing, going to a couple of concerts (my teacher's and my sister's), checking out the Canadian Music Centre.....Granville island! Should be a fun trip!!

Alright, I'll keep this short and sweet. See you all when I get back.

I could not practice 4 hours even if I had the time.
...wait a sec. saturdays I have the time!
But I usually make 1 hour sessions, 2 or mostly 3.

When I was 9 or 10 I read "Vancouver Nightmare" from Eric Wilson. It was a shock! I enjoyed that book like mad. I think this was my first contact with Canada...
or maybe it was Calgary 88!
