Thanks for the warm greeting. It's a pleasure to meet you! We travel through Texarkana on the way to visit my mother, brother, sister-in law, and nieces, in Bowling Green, Kentucky every year. We are so exhilarated as we cross the state line to and from...
Isn't this a lovely page and idea? So grateful to Bev for creating it, and allowing Stan Getz fans around the world to pay tribute to his fantastic musicianship, while connecting and sharing with one another!
Please keep in touch, and thanks again for contacting me!
Hi Cousin, Thanks for the Sugar Bush squirrel gif. We found the Sugar Bush web site and had a such a laugh. There's so many great squirrel photos on it. A Lot of moving gifs. too. We don't know how they got that squirrel to sit through all those photo shoots. Did you try out the sausage bread recipe yet? You mentioned you already bake bread so adding the other ingredients are a breeze. Were getting ready for the Holidays here and if you and Michael should ever plan a trip to NY you gotta let us know! We are still awaiting a phone call from you. We know your on a very busy schedule. Hope to TTYS. Love from LI - Eva and Lou
Yeah, 'tis been a long time. No job yet and it is quite scary for me/us. First time I've been unemployed since the tender age of 19 and it has been a year. Anyway, the positive side of it is spending more time with the doggies, listening to music, etc. I hope you and doing well and it is so good hearing from you.
Thank you Marissa. Nice to hear from you. Also swingin' in the far north;))
I am happy that you have such a good time. Of course would love to hear those tunes;)
I finally made it into that other band I was telling you about this summer.
More on this later;))
By the way are you on MySpace Marissa ? Let me know so I can request you.
So I guess you're very busy with work. That's good.
Lots of work here also.

Hi Marissa, Its starting to get pretty cold here. We were a little concerned what we were going do for Thanksgiving dinner this year with everything getting so tight and all. But it ends up we found a rent a center that will rent us a turkey for Thanksgiving. So long as we get it back by the next day! haha It was either that or buying one of those imitation turkeys again.lol Have a good one and Blessings to you, your family and pets. cousins Eva and Lou
Good evening from land of 27 degrees. Hey, not complaining, it was about 18 degrees last night at this time, so I guess we're havin' a heat wave. It was lovely making contact with Bob Freedman and checkin' out his website - he's a gem. I love you and hope you and hubby are keeping warm, too.
When I was a kid in the Bronx, we all played cowboys and indians and when someone said something unbelievable we all chimmed in with "Get out of Dodge!".
Anyway, stay happy and warm and keep the notes close to the heart.
Ah, I thought there was some Italian in there....
I'm using the Rubank advanced methods saxophone book. I'll be in this book for at least a year and then once a month. And I thought learning to read music was hard! This book really tests me; a newbe at that.
So, long tones for 10-15 minutes, 1/2 an hour on the advanced book, then onto the fun stuff. I play Body and Soul, standard and the Coleman Hawkins version every day along with So Nice (Summer Sumba). Then I end with a few bars of Tenor Madness, Sonny Rollins and Watermellon Man. What a workout. I do this because I'm a late bloomer to music and from all the books I read, Devil's Horn and such, I'm very very late. My mentor, Stan Getz, well, you know his start. I'm late, but better late than never. I seem to be driven by a higher calling.
Hey, enough. What's your current passion? Have you ever been to SOTW forum? Lots of info, and BS also, but good reading and informative.
Hi Cool Cous, We are not on FB...at least not yet. We are content with myspace, but you mentioned you don't have the high speed connection for it. )o: There is some great music sites on myspace. ie: I was able to connect with the cool keyboardest/arranger Bob James. He was very sympathetic when I told him I had to give up my tenor sax due to a neck injury. I told him I still have all his Albums (which I do) starting from his Bob James One album, and how much I loved all his arrangements from the Genie Album including the theme for Taxi. Also Joan just opened a new page on myspace with alot of her great songs. She is so talented.
We took our dog Annie in this week for her yearly shots and asked the vet if he can also give me a shot for the swine flu that's going around. I told him I have been squealing a lot lately in my sleep. Of coarse he couldn't do that but did give us a sedative for Annie's fear of 4 of July fireworks and fear of thunder, and I think it might also be just what I need to help stop me from chasing cars. lol. Keep us informed to your latest endeavors . Hugs to you and all the pets. Lou and Eva
OMG Marissa!!! Your comment had me CRYING I was laughing so hard!!!! "Ethel, you're about a hundred dry-mouthed years old, don't you know any other songs? And where did you learn your phrasing? On a roller coaster?" Your sense of humor is right in line with mine.. only I'm not NEARLY as witty!! You've started my day off with a HUGE smile... I'll be breaking up from this all day as it pops in and out of my (1 lonely, little cell) brain!!
