Oh, Lee will be able to help you!  Perhaps she can get a Colorado Brokie dinner too.  There's a nice crowd of Brokies out there.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I received sad news today. Rather my kids, but I'm also shocked. My son's music class teacher died yesterday, one day before the school holidays begin (=today). She also used to be my oldest daughter's music teacher some years ago, and she was very active for the school orchestra.
Only last week the school orchestra went on a three day trip. For Oliver it was the first orchestra trip and he was so happy and proud about it. When I picked him up on return, Hannah, Oliver and I chatted and joked with Mrs. S.

When Hannah told me she had died, my first reaction was "That can't be, we just talked."

But it can be of course. :(

She was in her mid-fifties. She was still at school yesterday, and Oliver saw her at the year-end-service. Later the same day she died from a heart-attack.

We are not promised tomorrow.

No, we are not. That's very sad.  :(

Just a few days ago I was looking through a book at home, and I found the newspaper clipping of the obituary of my favorite high school teacher, who died just after he retired from teaching on years of service. I'm now a year older he was when he died.  :-\

Some pictures of a Diner I ate at last month in Flagler, Colorado, about 120 road miles east of Denver on I-70.
