I'll Always Carry a Camera

The other day, I was in the car with my father and brother. We were driving to Wal Mart for various and sundry foodstuffs and other household items. As we pulled into the parking lot, I saw two homeless guys standing on little patches of grass on either side of the entrance to the parking lot. The one on the left was sitting on the grass with an old backpack and a faded red cooler, holding the stereotypical hobo sign; you know, "Hungry family. Anything helps, please give."

The other hobo was a bigger guy with a grizzly gray beard. He had a nasty old baseball cap on, and he also had a sign. It looked like this:

We all looked at each other in surprise, and then laughed for a good two minutes. We very nearly went back for a picture, but nobody had a camera.

Never again will I be caught unawares by such a stellar situation--I'll always carry my camera with me. :)

Love always,

One Day...

I'll get this right sometime, I'm sure of it. In the meantime, here's a swift and interesting blurb about my life.

I....sing. And play. And write. You know in Pride and Prejudice when the housekeeper at Pemberley is talking about Georgiana and she says, "She sings and plays all day long!" That's how I feel. I sing and play all day long.

Also, my brother is coming home from his mission in 10 days, if you don't count the rest of today. Wait, did I just write 10 days?? No no that can't be right. Oh my gosh. It's totally right. Where did two years go?! It's been so peaceful around here. But dull. Peaceful and dull. So, I guess it will be a good thing. Heh heh. I'm excited.

What else? I'm tired. Also, I'm auditioning for the School of Music. Wish me luck, since I'm 99.9% sure I won't blog again before that goes down. Also, ALL STATE ORCHESTRA! Woo! I'm so psyched out to play Sibelius, even if it isn't in Abravanel Hall. I guess I'll live.

Um, I think it's bedtime. Here's a nice parting gift.

(I'm extremely excited about this.)

Love always,
