    Better than being an unoriginal intended organist.

    I guess you're right - I never set out to be an organist, but just always happened to be the one that ended up doing the job...

    I just had lunch with two amusing expat Americans today (true story this). Mag told me about her childhood in Richmond, Virginia when they were at the local Presbyterian church. There was an upstairs and downstairs section, the upstairs was used historically for slaves and maids, the downstairs for white Americans (just setting the scene). Anyways, at the time Meg's story happened the church was most definitely not segregated.

    There were three familys' children in the upper section, mostly behaving themselves and it all came to a sudden end when one of the kids decided to make a paper aeroplane (airplane) and launched it. It (apparently) flew beautifully across the church, then circled around the clergyman's head (out of his sight and to the amazement of the congregation) picking up speed and crash landed in his earhole during his sermon.

    I laughed, and laughed. Being a clergyman's son myself I could share some horror stories of misbehaviour in church.

    I heard an organist once do this in a church service ... it was a digital organ with theatrical trems installed - all 16' stops went through the 'flute' channel, which included the Swell 16' Reed. The organist threw on the theatrical trems and played a solo below middle C on this 16' reed ... rather sounded like a walrus being given an enema ... I couldn't contain myself and busted up laughing and got some provocative stares from the other parishioners. It was a weird church, fortunately in another state from which I resided.

    Hey Krummhorn,

    *Walrus being given an enema* Oh thats just too funny - GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH - HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Thats better than the "pachydermal flatulence" that someone shared once.

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    I'm with you, Judy. Especially since I've been away from playing for almost 4 decades. But the rusty memory is slowly connecting to the synapses and the fingers are starting to remember...pleasantly surprising when I hear something on the radio and then go to my keyboard and I can play some or most of it.

    My first organ lesson I learned "Lady of Spain" and "Alley Cat" and then we found a teacher who was a classical organist. He thought that since I liked classical then that is what I should be learning. He gave me my first booklet, "Easy Bach" (which I scratched out immediately and wrote "Hard Bach") but it was the 10 Little Preludes and Fugues. Right now, those are what I am trying hardest to remember. I figure that once I have those down I can graduate again and start anew. I have to admit that my sight reading isn't what it used to be. But, in time...

    CT64,
    Thanks for your suggestion. I have downloaded the pieces and can ACTUALLY play some of them. Some are from lessons I had about a hundred years ago! I do appreciate your sharing. I should be taking delivery of the Hammond Commodore organ I found on Craig's List by next week and can finally start to use my feet again. Let's see...if I can't walk and chew gum............should be some good occupational therapy!

    greatcyber ... one of these days, when I get off my great, fat arse, I'll finish the PDF edition of the chorales. I have too many pots on the stove at present and am finding it very hot in the kitchen.

    CT64,
    Thanks for your consideration. I surely can understand about too many pots on the fire. Just imagine what it is like for me, having moved to a new country, trying to learn a new language and trying to get my musical memory and ability back... But hey, it's only time, right?

    Is that a photo of you in your beautiful avatar, nice, though hard to tell as it's quite small.

    Yes, that is a picture of me in the avatar. I shrank it down from a larger photo to use as an avatar on some acting websites. It was taken in our back yard by the pool when we lived in Fort Lauderdale. I tried to upload a photo of myself to my profile page, but every upload failed. I just need to shrink one down and I'll upload one of these days. I have a bad habit of downloading all sorts of programs from the web and now I need to take the time to go through my laptop and clean up and get rid of the programs that I don't use or didn't work for me. I am also interested in making movies so that was the original purpose for my getting my XPS 1710. But certain files needed certain programs to run them, hence...a big mess on my machine. I don't really have the time to do this today as we are getting ready for my step-daughter coming to visit from Boston tomorrow. It is her dad's birthday and we haven't seen her in over a year, when she graduated from Carnegie Mellon University. She's a computer engineer, so maybe she can tell me what I do and don't really need on the machine. She's not happy with being an engineer, so now she starts pre-med at Harvard in the fall. Ah, the eternal student. Sounds like me!
