Six foot branch from the neighbor's 50-foot redwood tree just fell on our roof and air conditioner. Startled us! Boom! Doesn't look like any damage done, but it's dark now so we'll have to check better tomorrow. Seems strange to have so much wind without rain.

This morning we were awaked early by a rooster crowing. On and on, about 15-20 times. We thought, which of our neighbors has a rooster, and why don't they shut him up? We looked out our window, and the crowing stopped. Hmnm. Ok, we're back in bed; it started up again. Mary went outside to find a rooster in our backyard tree. When she shook the branch with a stick, he squawked and fluttered away onto a neighbor's roof, but stopped making noise. If he comes back for a return engagement tomorrow, we'll have charcoals ready on the BBQ …

Piano Rolls

Cleaning out my parents' house. My favorite piano rolls from childhood. Hand picked from 10+ boxes of rolls. See anything familiar?

My all-time favorite is Couplet Sans Paroles by Emil Sauer. Found the MP3 on Amazon and put it on my iPod.

Sigma Model CS-6 classical guitar. Vintage 1970. Imported by Martin Guitars. A little beat up. Probably needs a tune-up (my brother knows how) and maybe new strings. Savers - $16

I also have a nice Aspen steel string guitar, but sometimes it's overkill in our little fellowship group of 12.
