65 in TX today but cloudy..and a few rain showers....then this afternoon the wind started out of north. Temp dropped 30 degrees quickly. Down to 20s tonight. No snow...Cold for next five days....below normal. The big chill has arrived. High of 40 tomorrow..maybe....or lower...brrr...Heat is going to be running. Last month Natural Gas bill was $121 ...not too bad....electricity bill not in yet...but it will be big.....the pool pump runs all the time below 40 deg....and of course, with all the dark, the lights are on a bunch. plus the furnace fan. and the humidifier...Off to Denny's in the morning for normal Sunday breakfast there with the big 2-3 inch thick Dallas paper. t.

She and her husband both were music majors too and I accompanied him for his senior recital but this is so weird, I can't remember what his instrument was--maybe it was voice but I don't think so. She now lives on a ranch outside of Hay Springs. I think they are divorced. They both retired from music education careers though. I was one of the few from the music major group who went on to do something else than teach music (other than some piano and guitar lessons here and there). I think it was because my mother wanted and expected me to do that and the last thing I wanted to do was what she wanted and expected. Anyway, Hay Springs Dorothy and I were both in a madrigal group one year and we rode around from town to town in Nebraska performing for high school assemblies. Half the program was "concert" music, beginning with madrigals to justify our name, and the other half lighter and popular, including a Kingston Trio like threesome that did songs such as Tom Dooley and Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport and strummed away on their guitars. Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjd1_8fQ0NY On our musician's bus we played Rook for hours and hours while rolling down the highway in all kinds of weather, including major snowstorms like we had the last couple days. Over cards I fell in love with another fellow madrigal singer who later became my trumpet player boyfriend--but during that madrigal year we were both innocent songbirds. I have always found it easy to fall in love over card games, especially if they tend to last a while. They play bridge up at the senior center every afternoon at 1pm. I’ll bet there are any number of flirtations going on around those tables.
good morning cat, you're up early this morning. :)
I'm sold on the Bean Broker. If I ever get to Chadron, that's where we're eating. My brother doesn't cook.arrete
