3am - I have been wanting to have John Philip Sousa's marches on my iPhone. I woke up and went to iTunes with my iPhone and bought my favorite marches.
The first March that I got was "Stars and Stripes Forever" composed
by John Philips Sousa. Toward the end of the march I heard it!
The piccolo solo!
Suddenly I was no longer in the year 2017 in Apple Valley. I had moved through time and space to 1947 in Los Angeles.
I am 10 years old in the home where I was conceived. My dad is playing the piccolo solo from Stars & Stripes Forever.
This flashback was so powerful that I could see and hear everything that happened so very many years ago. Somehow, at that moment, I was actually there! In my home with my Dad!
My Dad said to me, "Be quiet, Georgie. I'm practicing."
And this is what I heard.....
10:30am - Music
Did Baby Boid and I ever Blog to you about our music? We didn't? Well, let's do that now, OK?
We have several albums. George and Baby Boid love every song on every album. Because if we don't like a particular song, we just send it down to trash. Good riddance!
