Happy Birthday, Brock!!!!

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.


It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.


My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!


For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.


But, Lord, ‘tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh trump of the angel! Oh voice of the Lord!
Blessèd hope, blessèd rest of my soul!


And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

so i have just crossed over that bridge between human kind and band geek: i have just, for the first time ever...

- totally disassembled my horn
- bathed it in a lukewarm bath with dish detergent
- polished it with silver polish (while my husband played "quicksilver" in the background to practice - kinda funny!)
- reassembled and greased the tuning slides
- oiled the valves
- and then wiped it all with a clean cloth.

...i have crossed over to the dark side.

last night we went to the braves game as part of our 4th of july traditions. (it's our 2nd annual game.) they did this really cool thing with a MASSIVE american flag -- i called it a "ken chapman flag". yeah, it was that big.

we weren't playing so well...then it started to rain. we were under cover in the nosebleed section so we didn't go anywhere. we figured we'd be alright under the covering. we were wrong. the rain started blowing in sideways through the back of our seats. we got soaked. but what really sucked is that since we waited to move, and the game was almost sold out, we had nowhere to go to find shelter. we finally found a tunnel to a men's restroom and stood in there with about 50 of our (new) closest friends. it was hilarious. we stood there for a long while until the lightening died down. while we were there, i had a lengthy conversation with a 4 year old who had his face painted the same way i did. he was awesome!!!

anyway - we got home about midnight when the game restarted. we lost.

but it doesn't matter. i LOVE going to braves games!!!!!
