MIAGD: Make it a great day
We’re saluting June as it prepares to take a bow.
Since today is my friend and former neighbor’s, Laura Parker, birthday, that is the starting gun that three months from today I will turn 54, this entering my 55th year of life. Laura’s mother, Kay, is my wonderful neighbor and my second mom.
In fifteen minutes I will have my longest teaching day of the week: 22 students with one at music camp. Sundays I have 9 students with Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 and 8 students.
Wednesday, I will attend The Air Force Band of Flight’s concert at the Fraze Pavilion over on the next block. The Band of Flight was the very first Air Force band and was started by my late friend and fellow community band conductor, Paul Shartle.
Friday morning, I will be at Wright State University to see several students performing for the end of Camp A Capella. I’m looking forward to that event, as well.
Then, the following week is the July Fourth celebrations with the Americana Parade in Centerville, and several events with friends. That day will be a juggling act.
So, the week is off and running. The dogs are jumping for joy as they first student of the day has arrived. Actually, the dogs tend to jump for joy with each arriving student. They’re a bit more excited with those parents who let them out into the front room while their children are in lessons.
Eleven Mary Lincoln day lilies greeted me this morning.
June 25, 2018… Make it a great day!
