For the wonder of each hour of the day and of the night,

Hill and vale and tree and flower, Sun moon and stars of light

Lord of all, to Thee we raise this our hymn of grateful praise

(From the hymn, For the Beauty of the Earth)

Monday of last week is over. : ) Our first band rehearsal of the season was interesting. We were rehearsing in a new building and the room has a horrible echo. It’s really fun to sing in but it’s impossible for the director to hear parts, according to him. The band’s plans are coming together for the special dedicatory concert for the park and band shell with the Marine band from New Orleans. Turns out the town is suing the contractor who ’remodeled’ the park so it may not even be open in time. Hmmm. So, yeah details are still being worked out. : P : ) One of the hardest pieces in the program is Procession of Nobles (from “Malada”), by Rimsky-Korsakov. This same composer wrote “Flight of the Bumble Bee”. : P : D

I’ve been pretty well been Jane Austin-ed out the past few evenings. I watched Pride and Prejudice, Emma, AND Sense and Sensibility. No, I had never seen any of these versions before. (If anyone is wondering, P&P was with Colin Firth, or whatever his name is.) The Greer Garson P&P stands out as a very well done version, and one I grew up on, but this ’new’ one goes into much more detail and is considerably longer. I do believe I might be thinking and speaking with an English accent for a good long time. ; )

In other news, we received two more mix downs this weekend. :) I really liked the way the brass turned out.

Please, continue to pray for Kent Hovind who is who knows where. God bless him.
