When I was younger and my memory was better, I was able to play the first 12 pages (or however many the first movement is!) of Moonlight Sonata (Beethoven). I played it often enough that I was able to play it without the sheet music. Today, if I sat in front of a piano, I'd be lucky to get out the first few chords of Let It Be (actually I probably would be happy if I could play Chopsticks all the way thru!).
But I digress....this is a photo from about a week ago. It was such a beautiful, calm night.
Tomorrow starts our next 4 days off. Maybe I already mentioned this but Dan wants to go back to the apple valley and get more apples and fried pies! In looking through some Georgia travel info, I found an old grist mill that really isn't too far from here, so I'm hoping we can find it. It is near a town called Sixes which isn't even on the map! We may be going around in circles for a while trying to locate this mill but it'll be the first thing we search for!! That way we'll have LOTS of time!!
I can't remember if I told you that on our way down, the various campgrounds we stayed at, we compared "notes" with other campground owners and hosts about if they felt campers were getting way out of hand with being hard to please, etc. EVERYONE SAID THIS PAST SUMMER WAS THE WORST THEY HAD EVER EXPERIENCED WITH CAMPERS THAT JUST COULD NOT BE PLEASED!!! And others also had the same experience of campers going online to bitch about that particular campground. I am really NOT looking forward to next summer if this is going to be a continuing trend. I may have to keep a box of wine under my counter and keep some in my sippy cup!
