I thought to myself, "How on earth can I listen to this?" Well, lo and behold I had also saved a little cassette player which, believe it or not, still works!! So, I've listened to the tape of Grace Trio, which is quite a step back in time. One side was recorded at church, the other side is a very casual tape I made while we were practicing at one of the gals homes. The little baby voices in the background are my boys, Jordan and Josh, playing. They would have been maybe 4 and 2 years of age. (They're now 32 and 30!)
My parents also made this box full of CD's from cassettes I made while living in a little apartment in Angleton, TX at the age of 21. I'm doing a lot of cringing and wincing while listening to these. My guitar playing is abominable and my voice...shrill at times. That's what happens when an alto tries to sing things that are too high for her. Heh, heh.
My "boy cut" from high school years. (Actually, it was probably GrandPA Zimmerman who put these on CD's. Right, Glenn?) On some of these songs I just recorded myself singing along with an album, such as this one.
I started this post a few days ago and then had internet problems which required a visit from a tech guy, so I'm just now getting it posted.
I've been reading Letters of C.S. Lewis on my breaks at work.
I love this description of the library where he studies. (Click on the photo to actually read it.)
He expresses what I feel about William Cowper's writings. I especially have loved the letters he writes, though I've only read a few.
I've ordered this book, hoping I'll enjoy the letters as much as I remember. (Although, I don't expect I'll receive this really cool old copy.)
I've also ordered The Inklings by Humphrey Carpenter.
Oh, it's getting late! Work tomorrow, so I'm off to bed. I hope to catch up on visiting some blogs tomorrow. I've been indulging in lots of reading and even did some lawn mowing yesterday.
Hazel Jane had her second birthday yesterday! What a fun little character! :)
Goodnight all, and shalom!
