We arrived home yesterday to the daily paper's announcement of the first CU-CU meeting on September 2nd. I am stoked!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I spent some time working on some three-part arrangements for the group on Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie and Goober Peas and Drunken Sailor. I was also inspired seeing soldiers come home yesterday while changing planes in Phoenix. Very stirring to see those young families reunited. I think I will work on Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier next. I have loved that tune since I was a young kid learning music in public school general music. If a tune haunts you that long, you should work on it!
