My wife and I just completed a trip from St. Louis to New Haven CT to visit our son who just began a Masters Degree in Flute performance at Yale's School of Music. We drove to take in the fall foliage and were not disappointed. Spectacular! He had a concert in New Haven on friday and sunday at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center and we went to hear him play with the Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale with John Adams as guest conductor with the Brentano String Quartet. The program was Stavinsky's Orpheus, Adams' Absolute Jest and Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 in B flat major, Op. 60.

It's amazing how we have "snapshot" moments in our lives that come flooding back to us as one touches an item, or smells a scent. I also found things that I lost many years ago and eventually bought new.
Do any of you fellas spin your own wool? And I don't mean bags of raw wool from a shop. I mean, sheared, dyed, handled yourself and spun up? I think we could do something interesting. Let me know. I have a plan....
