St. Michael Trio

My friend Russ, Marguerite‘s husband, played tonight, and I missed Knit Night, but oh goodness, you should hear the St. Michael Trio play!  Three men who trained for musical professions, but one went on into medicine, one into software, and one is a CEO.

I think, though I may be wrong, that Marguerite’s Celebration of Life is how they got started playing together. When I wrote that post, I was referring briefly to my Crohn’s hospitalization of ’03; I had no idea, of course, what was coming.  Just to clarify.

And now they’re Artists in Residence at Menlo College and deservedly so.

They autographed my CD for me.   It’s official: I’m a groupie.

You’ve had some great music moments recently!

They are awesome!

I find it interesting that some many of us that create with our hands are also drawn to good music — I wonder if we’re just wired that way

Strange. You don’t look like a groupie.
As to Bev’s comment, perhaps creative people generally are drawn to music.

Fun time:
There was once a snail who was sick and tired of his reputation for being so slow. He decided to get some fast wheels to make up the difference. After shopping around a while, he decided that the Datson 240-Z was the car to get. So the snail goes to the nearest Datsun dealer and says he wants to buy the 240-Z, but he wants it repainted “240-S”.

The dealer asks, “Why ‘S’?”

The snail replies, “‘S’ stands for snail. I want everybody who sees me roaring past to know who’s driving.”

Well, the dealer doesn’t want to lose the unique opportunity to sell a car to a snail, so he agrees to have the car repainted for a small fee.

The snail gets his new car and spent the rest of his days roaring happily down the highway at top speed. And whenever anyone would see him zooming by, they’d say “Wow! Look at that S-car go!”
