The Scar

The Scar

So, I know Iíve taken several pictures of my hand and mentioned the scar in the middle of my hand, but Iím not sure just how well you could really see it so I decided to take a picture of it. Of course, I also wanted to show off my manicured nails that I bought myself for my birthday. Iíve never had nails long enough to do a french manicure, so this was a big thing for me. I love it, but theyíre already chippingÖgrrrÖ

The scar. My Mom and Dad will tell you I was trying to hang our dog in the tree. That, however, was not really the case. I had the idea when I was a kid that if I took a rope and tied it loosely around a tree branch, the dog would be able to move back and forth and have more room to move around the yard rather than just being chained. Like those runners for dogs, you know? Well, I fell out of the tree, tried to catch a branch that had broken off, and cut my hand open. I remember all of this. What I donít remember is the fact that I had to get stitches, but I can see the points on either side of the scar like I did have stitches. My parents came down Saturday (and we had a lovely visit Ė love you guys!) and we talked about this scar and they said I did, in fact, get stitches. I donít remember that part. At all. Itís just an interesting scar to me and Iíve been thinking about it often lately for some reason.

I had a good birthday, I shopped, bought a dress and a shirt (the dress I will definitely get a picture of donít worry), got my nails done, cleaned the house since my parents were coming, and went to dinner. It was a very good day.

So, I got tagged for my very first time by Ben (thanks Ben!) and I have to tell you ten things about myself. HmmmÖ.what in the world could I possibly tell you? Am I that interesting to come up with ten things to tell you? HmmmÖ.well, letís see what we can do.

1. My favorite colors are blue and purple, though Iím apparently also becoming very fond of yellow and green.
2. I wanted to be a meteorologist and I still think about it.
3. I love horses, Iíve always wanted one.
4. I seem to have a bit of OCD, the older I get, the worse it seems to get.
5. I used to bite my nails obsessively, but Iíve finally stopped.
6. I love music, all kinds and types of music. I was in a band for a few months, but it ended up not working out and I seriously miss it. Being on stage doesnít bother me, I enjoy it. (And donít laugh, but I grew up idolizing Dolly Parton, my biggest influence as a kid).
7. I can play the piano, guitar and clarinet, but guitar is my weapon of choice at the moment.
8. Iím apparently very uncoordinated. I had a chance to work as a singer/waitress on a boat once, but I didnít take the job because I knew Iíd fall down and not be very good as a waitress.
9. My daddy is a preacher and a damn good one at that.
10. I love photography, I always have, and Iíd love to be hired by people (and paid, as well) to do photography, even if only as a side gig.

Shew! Wow, that was hard. Okay, Iím gonna go wipe the sweat from my brow and take a breather now after that!

Oh, and if I tagged, you, I guess you're supposed to tell us 10 things about you and tag another 10 people, if I understand this correctly. Play along if you like, if not, I understand completely! ;o)

B&H Emperor Clarinet circa 1973

B&H Emperor Clarinet circa 1973

My clarinet my parents bought for me from Yardleys in Old Snow Hill, Birmingham. I must have been 15yrs old when they bought it for me for Christmas. It cost ?100 or thereabouts and I said I didn't want any other presents (I got them anyway). It's not the top of the range of the Boosey and Hawkes clarinets but it's the next best thingand the forerunner of the E13. Great sound. I played in the school orchestra, Lichfield Music Centre and County Orchestra. Used to play a lot and I taught it for a while to supplement my income until I moved away to London. Over the years I've thought about getting it out but this year is the year I make a New Year's Resolution to dust it off and start playing again. I've given it a clean and oiled the joints, sounds fine although I feel some of the pads may need an overhaul.
