Already Gone

Last night UJ's friend Billy and his wife Laurie came over for music practice for the guys. Laurie and I sat in the kitchen or outside visiting, listening with one ear to the guys play.

I think they have some good arrangements of the song selections and will be a great asset to the entertainment at the upcoming class reunion. I mentioned it on an earlier post, but they will be playing some old jazz tunes: A Summer Wind, It's Only a Paper Moon, Orange Colored Sky,and Fly Me to the Moon. Fly Me to the Moon has the best arrangment and sounds good even with just two guitars. They are working on getting a drummer. I hope Kerry, the vocalist, is able to pull some strings, call in a favor,or kick some kneecaps and get a drummer to play with them because that will just make them ROCK!

The evening ended with me singing all the tunes, semi badly but happily! I felt totally at ease singing in front our friends. (Heck they didn't care!)

After one practice round UJ started playing some Eagles songs. He picked out Already Gone and we all chimed in singing at the top of our lungs "cause I'm already gone, and I'm feeling strong, I will sing this victory song. woohoohooooooo !!

It's the simple things in life ........


  1. I just woke up and you were 'already gone' to work.

    You can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan.......

  2. so you want BLT's for dinner tonight??

  3. Is this a private party, or can anybody join in?

  4. I felt totally at ease farting in front of those people a year ago when we visited.

  5. It really is the simple things in life. I adore hearing Frank Sinatra sing Summer Wind. Old, mellow favourites...
