|I just like this photo.|
It surprises me that this locomotive entered service as early as 1938; looks more modern to me.

Currently listening to:
|Felizol and the Boy|
Last night's dinner:
|Lasagne and salad.|
|I loved this book's evocation of France.|
Drumming practice update:
Have adjusted the grip for my left hand yet again, to this:
The key elements are these:
Stick gripped in the V between thumb and index finger - I was doing that already;
Thumb resting on last section of index finger;
Stick resting on cuticle of middle finger.
I'm continuing to experiment with the grip of the left hand for two reasons:
1) because my Tuesday night class leader says that the stick should rest on the cuticle of the middle finger and I've never felt comfortable doing that;
2) despite all my practice, the left hand stick still moves about when it strikes the skin of the drum and I still have difficulty hitting the skin cleanly with my left hand when the drum is tilted, as it is when using a shoulder strap.
