By the time you read this it'll be Thursday and I'll be thinking about my 2nd class of the semester. The first class was last week and I think I was the oldest in the room besides the teacher. I was asked to transfer to the intermediate classical guitar class because I have a basic understanding of sight reading of the sheet music. I resisted the opportunity because I wanted to strengthen my skills. The class was full of younger *kids* who seem to think it was a class to learn popular radio hits. I think their may be a little attrition after he continued to stress the technical purity of the classical style. Before we left for the night he played the selection to receive an A for the class. Here is someone I really love to watch on You tube doing almost the same arrangement
Scarborough Fair.... I found out it was originally an old English tune but made popular by Simon & Garfunkel in the movie "The Graduate". I hope I can play something that resembles the video LOL
Monday night we took a ride to Wally World to renew my BP prescription. Three months for $10.00 was the same price that Walgreens charged for the single month. I dislike going to Wally World so much but I thought if I can save $80.00 a year, I can deal with the pain of walking into the den of Satan LOL. I'm not used to the packaging though. I reminds me of the containers that birth control pill come in. After about 40 days on the meds my BP is 111/72 with a resting heart rate of 78. I asked my Dr to prescribe the meds because I was feeling a little sluggish before and he was surprised that I would ask for the help since I was just slightly borderline hypertensive. I know that if I can lose the extra 15 to 20 lbs I will probably not need to meds but I feel so much better. I have a lot to look forward to in my future and I plan to be around to enjoy it.
Life is Good!
