Kazoo Eclipse by mathiasdradams.

It’s been a bit of a strange week. I was feeling under the weather for most of it but am finally up and about again. Tonight we went out to dinner at Sedona’s oldest continually-operating restaurant (from the early 1900’s), and were entertained by a marvelous Beatles cover band. During a break I was chatting with one of the female backup singers and shared that my only regret in life is never having performed onstage with a band. Unfortunately, I confided, I don’t have any talent that qualifies me to get up there, but I loved her response. She told me that she became part of the band after she retired from her first career and that it’s never too late to experience your heart’s desire. “Buy a kazoo,” she said, “and join a rock band. Go for the dream.”

You know, that idea isn’t so far-fetched. My future son-in-law is a musician. Maybe if I got a kazoo…

    or vicariously through Katie. She recently said that she is going to sing when you and Roy get back and begin practicing for singing on a stage in front of people that she does not know.

    Holy crap! Am I actually growing a confident girl here??!!!

    Better Katie than me. If I sang, the place would clear out quicker than a courtroom after a not-guilty verdict!
