Life Goes On

We all make mistakes at some point in our lives, but it can be hard to make a mistake when you feel as if the whole world is watching you. As a saxophone player Liverpool I hate it when I mess up and I make a mistake. I hate being in front of a crowd and realizing that I have just played the wrong note. When you are someone who is performing it can be hard to deal with a mistake and a wrong note played. The thing that I always have to remind myself of, though, is something that my dad taught me years ago. Even when you mess up on stage you have to know that life goes on. No matter what you do things will end up working out okay. The world will not remember your mistake forever; time will pass and it will be forgotten.

Game Show Viewing Made More Enjoyable

Dad and I always made a ritual of watching ‘Jeopardy’ on a nightly basis. We’d enjoy shouting out the questions to the answers on this game show as soon as they popped into our heads. But in recent weeks, Dad didn’t seem to be participating as fully as possible and I was way ahead in calling out the questions in each category.

When I asked him what was wrong, he sheepishly admitted he simply couldn’t hear most of what was going on and didn’t want to ask me to turn up the TV volume. Well, a simple solution was to call our family physician to get him a hearing check and to determine whether or not his deteriorated hearing level could be helped by one of the many fantastic Stockport hearing aids available to senior citizens today. Dad recently got outfitted with one, so we’re back enjoying ‘Jeopardy’ and he’s winning!

Online Dating, Love at First Sight and Jean-Luc Ponty

I had met this wonderful woman online, and instead of meeting at a coffee house, to get acquainted, we agreed to go to a concert by Jean-Luc Ponty, a world-renowned electric violinist. He was appearing at the Paramount Theater, at Madison Square Garden, in New York City. We agreed to go dutch. We exchanged photographs, so we knew what the other looked like when we met. We hopped onto the train, into the city, and got along splendidly for the entire evening, enjoying the performance of Jean-Luc Ponty, and his electric violin. After the concert, we grabbed a taxicab to Chinatown, and have a wonderful Chinese food dinner, laughing, having good conversation, and sharing each other’s dish. That was 23 years ago, and to this day we are still happily married. If it wasn’t for Jean-Luc Ponty, I would not be the happy man that I am today.

It’s Off To Work They Go

It was a hot summer day, but the air conditioning Manchester would not work. I decided to try to fix it myself, only to discover there was someone else who was already on the job. As I pulled the cover off of the main vent, I noticed a light about two feet back. Seeing as how I had no idea what could be inside the vent, I got my flashlight and crawled through the space. To my amazement, there were two small elves working on the filter and the pump. They briskly turned wrenches and screwdrivers, getting the cool air working again. In a matter of minutes, the elves had the air back on, cleaning up as quickly as they made the repairs. Perhaps these are the noises I hear while sleeping at night, and why everything in the house gets fixed without my assistance.
