Well, you've read the notes, the notes were a fine final day of May notes, and now it is time for you to post until the final day of May cows come home.

Ah, that's better. I hope the time stamp fix stays (it previously said 3:35am which was what FJL was commenting on, I believe).

Good morning, all! I have a few more Herbert charts to proof today, and I will be all caught up with the copyists. Thirteen of the 28 scores have been sent to me for first edits, six more are with the copyists, and I've proofed eleven of them. We're doing well. My goal is to have the scores finished by the middle of July so that the printing and assembling of scores and orchestra parts can be finished by August 1.

I've got one enormous score of 300+ bars, the Act One Finale, and that will take several days to proof. The gigantic Act Two Finale and Opening of Act Three, both over 300 bars as well, are with the copyists, so I expect them later in the week or the next. So that's my day: proof what's needing it and scan and send corrected scores back to Curtis for corrections.

More coffee and to work!

No coffee here, but some potential get-the-blood-flowing music - we just put up my brother's latest song from his current project

It may be coincidence that it's called FIRE IN THE BELLY, similar to the phrase that's been being bandied about in politics lately - but the work is totally non-partisan as far as I can tell

FIRE IN THE BELLY - song written by my dear brother - definite aerobic workout potential

(maybe a little Eagles influence in the accompaniment??)

Your bro's FIRE IN THE BELLY is very catchy, DR FJL.   It's a good summer driving song. 

Why did it end so abruptly?

DtM - Hmm, that second one ends abruptly too, and the actual mp3 has a nice resolution.  I hope there's not something subliminal about my wanting to cut my brother off before he's finished or something like that.   :) :)

You may have discovered something there.   LOL!

We are under a heat advisory today - and it is our family night - everyone's family can come and take photos and generally make pests of themselves.....so it's going to be a long night.

Eric from the local paper took photos last night - he must be planning to run them tomorrow.  In today's paper, he wrote a nice story about last Saturday's event.

Ernie is still in the hospital, and I have not heard anything this morning - we shall see.

An observation about Spencer Tracy and BK's suggestion that Tracy didn't need to hang out with war veterans to prepare for his part.  I took BK's meaning, but I'd respectively suggest that Tracy actually did...or, actually "had"...hung out with war veterans.   His studio was filled with them.  His pals were among them.   Anything Tracy might have needed he drew from his own life's experiences, including his astute observations of those immediately around him.

I've already been out and about taking care of some errands, and now I have to do some Oklahoma! homework. Later tonight, I'm seeing The Normal Heart tonight. -I'm trying to figure out if I should just bring a box of Kleenex with me or a roll of Bounty paper towels. :-\ ;)
