BUH BUH BUH! Another row bites the dust! BUH BUH BUH! Another row bites the dust! And another row’s gone and another row’s gone and another row bites the dust! BUH BUH BUH!

…Back when we were newlyweds we had a couple in the apartment upstairs, who, neither spoke English well and neither knew the other’s language and they were taking a dance class because you can communicate with movement and they could only afford one ’45 single and they only played one side of it. Night after night after night. And guess which tune shook our walls till all hours? Yeah…

I so wanted to finish my project today. If I showed you a picture the recipient would instantly be on to me, so, no, but, I thought I was about two-thirds done and started in on it a little before 1:30. Welcoming every interruption I could get for the sake of my hands, nine hours of knitting and quite a few rows later than what I originally planned, it is indeed done.

I *DID* it! Let’s DANCE! (And so we did. While singing that tune. Amazing what a little enthusiasm’ll do for you.)

It’s funny how songs spring out at you like that. Anna is taking Oceanography this year, so we have had to set up at aquarium. And as I workied on it, I found my self singing that it was “The dawning of the age of aquaria . . . .” Sigh.

So what was the song, Benny Goodman’s “Let’s Dance”?

I spent a night in a motel with paper thin walls, once in Seattle. The guy on the other side had set his cd player to “repeat” and he hadn’t lowered the volume. It was a long night! Glad you got the project done.

Hurrah for completed objects! I raked a few leaves this afternoon rather than knit, but I am about to settle in for a few hours of it. On a very late fall day, with an extra hour to sleep just in case I stay up late knitting and a glass of wine – ah, I’m celebrating, too!
