The Pearl Strings started recording our summer songs today. It was tangled mess of wires, but went much better than last time. This time the computer didn't freeze up on me, thanks to Ed telling me the input device from the FireStudio is not "hot swappable." Who knew?
The only problems we had today were the headphone wires had to be wiggled just right to be able to hear each other. June got some nice pictures of us. Here's Jen getting ready to sing!
We were glad Barb was home from Florida long enough to record! She is the foundation of the band!
June is not only a great singer, but she's pretty good with her i-phone as well! Without her help we wouldn't have these great pictures to remind us how much fun we had today--which we truly had.
But, wait, where is Helen? follow these chords...
There she is in the closet! Me made her go in the closet because she was playing to loud! She was a good sport and we had a good laugh about it!
It is fun being a member of the Pearl Strings!

We have such a lovely stream in our back yard when it rains.
To get a better look at it, I took a video. The good news is, that the foundation in the back corner is dry. That problem has been solved!

His sense of humor hasn't left him, and we had a few good laughs at some of his comments, some of which were a little to saucy for this blog!
We closed up shop about an hour early on Saturday, as it started to rain, but we were grateful that the weatherman was wrong about the morning rain, and we made it till 1 p.m. with no problems!

I've enjoyed Maureen, our teacher, (first on the left). She's had a lot of experience teaching as well as travelling to Germany. Tony and I are the two that got the discounted senior tuition. Then, we had two students from McDaniels college who are graduating this semester, but couldn't fit a language at McDaniels into their schedules. We've learned a lot what each of us does on the weekend, as every Monday morning the teacher asks us, "Was haben sie am Wochenende gemacht?" With only four students in the class, everyone gets a chance to answer the question!

We plan on meeting monthly at the South Carroll Senor Center, generally the first Monday at 10 a.m. Everyone is welcome to come (if you are 60 or over). We'd like to double our membership next month!
Es ist ironisch, dass wir zum ersten mal am fünften Mai (Cinco de Mayo) versammelt haben!

Tom and Carla went back to Denver today, and the party is now over. It was fun having them here--just like a stay-cation for us. They left us with some great memories!
Ed is still smiling in this picture, as he had not yet found out that he had lost his car keys somewhere in the park. They must have gotten all shook up on one of the roller coasters!
It was fun watching them roll along the conveyor belt. Mine had butterscotch, toffee and crispy rice!
The happy ending to the story is, that today Ed and I retrieved both the car and the car key, which was found last night in the park. So, aside from some inconvenience and expense, all is well that ends well. (And I have something to tease Ed about for the next 20 or 30 years!)
