On the Blessing of The Curse

December 27, 2011


This past weekend, all six of my grandpa Bohannan’s children, all but one of his seventeen grandchildren, and his oldest great-grandchild gathered in Apple Valley, California to celebrate his 80th birthday on Christmas day.

Hello, friends and family. As you probably know, I started this blog a little over a year ago. Like many who have blogged and burned before me, I started it with the intention of introducing new people to the wonderful world of classical music.

After getting to work a little earlier than usual today, I finished organizing my portion of the storage area pretty early (around 10:00am) and proceeded to help others with a few odds and ends to fill out the morning. The storage area was lookin’ pretty dang good if I do say so myself. Like I […]
