Things to know. Or not....
The very nice employee at the Giant Tiger near me stopped me today and told me that the wee pool I got her last year was being very much used and enjoyed by her nieces and nephews in the Philippines. She has a video to show me next time.
That is just awesome. Stay kind my friends!
I really can only read piping and drumming notation. So yesterday, one of my pupils had this book which is a saxophone music book, and I thought I'd look through it. Found this melody, which we know in piping as "Going Home" which is a lovely lament I play often at funerals and other memorials. Proof that a good song never goes away, but it might be known under different titles. Cheers!
There was a lady who lived in the building across from me who was having an apartment sale over the past few days. I decided on Friday to pop up and see what she had, and I ended up buying a couple of cool things. In talking to her about her move, I learned that she was leaving a very unhealthy marriage and moving away to start fresh. I felt I could help more, so yesterday I went over, and gave her some more money and told her I'd take the leftover items to the local children's day care near us. I have lots to take, and it will mean a lot to many of the kids.
And this girl will be able to get herself more prepared to relocate, knowing these things will go to deserving kids. We all win!
