You remember the movie, "The Bucket List" with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. They made a list of things to do before they "kicked the bucket".
Playing the violin has always been on my bucket list. How can I go through life without experiencing what it feels like to be a violinist? So I borrowed a violin from a school this summer.
Whenever I play, I hear doors slamming. Sometimes I have to change rooms. But it's a small price to pay for getting to pretend you're Itzhak Perlman.
Yesterday I worked on the "Happy Birthday" tune. C, my oldest son, is 22 today!
He helped me cook dinner. As his father later put it..."I think C has discovered garlic."
We had garlic mash potatoes, garlic shrimp and garlic steaks.
I'm thankful for a good day with him.
