I've been spending the last hour+ listening to a bird with insomnia. Actually, it's some variety of night singing bird, probably a nightingale or mockingbird. Noisy as all get-out. He hasn't shut up for the entire time! From what I read, that describes the mockingbird. It's fun listening to him now, but I'll be glad I have good earplugs when I'm going to bed. Then again, considering that both Himself and I both have been able to hear him even when the windows are closed, I'm not sure those earplugs will be good enough.

I woke up, and don't know why. So, I'm rearranging and reorganizing my music book and restringing my Fender Stratocaster.

I'll be off to bed soon LOL!

You play guitar!? How impressive. I used to....when I was a singer/songwriter - not picked it up for ages.

So you play rock music then or do you compose? In a band?

I play and sing with both acoustic and electric. I play by ear. If I hear it, I can play it.

I was in a band years ago in the Army as lead singer/lead guitarist. It was a blast! We played in some clubs and had a ball!

I did have some original songs. Those were kinda cool, too. I play 60's - 70s stuff.

There is at least one other musician here. In case you hadn't guessed from the name and avatar, Rocklobster is a musician.

PF's husband Shrek is also a musician, as is Janet H, who has her own band.

Pf, I just saw your post of a week ago about the chest pains. I hope it was just a gas pain or something. After I had my heart surgery the doctor sent me home with orders not to do anything strenuous, like running the vacuum. That was in 2008, and DH is still doing it. Shhhhhh!

Angel Flight Mission

Today i flew a cancer patient to his appointment in Santa Monica. It was his first flight and he thoroughly enjoyed it. The weather was great, and the Pacific Coast is always beautiful.

Looked like it was a gorgeous day for flying, SC. Thank you again for all you do not only for the cancer patients, but for the doggies, too.
