Family Photos

A few family photos from my parents' visit. This is pregnancy week 27, 3 months to go!

Dad & I in front of the Clavinova that they disassembled & drove out to KC for me. I am so excited to have a piano to play again, and Dave even puttered around a little on it this week, trying to figure out a lovely piano instrumental by the Smashing Pumpkins. (Yes, seriously, those Smashing Pumpkins!)

Nice photos! Hehe, my mom got in trouble because i told her to call your mom "Grandma" ;-)

Which Smashing Pumpkins song? Great band; i think i'm going to go & put on "Siamese Dream" right now.

"Hi! Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins"
"Homer Simpson, smiling politely."

It was "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness", the lead track off the album of the same name. Not my favorite Pumpkins album; in fact, it's the point at which I started to lose interest in the band. But it's got a terrific opening combo (Mellon Collie/Tonight, Tonight), and a few other songs I like (Muzzle has always been a favorite).

Regardless, it's probably an overstatement to say I was "figuring out" the song. I was hunting and pecking for individual notes -- chords are more coordination than my hands and brain are capable of!
