Practice, practice, practice.

No time for railway today because we're going on a big cycle through south east Lanarkshire and then staying overnight in a hotel.

So, this blog has been written a few hours in advance.

One thought I did have was to place some kind of French Billboard advert on the expanse of yellow wall at the base of the apartment building.

Currently listening to:

Never get sick of this CD.

Last night's dinner:
Macaroni cheese and chicken thighs.

Almost finished:

2% left to read.

Her writing is at its most powerful when she's describing the final days of those close to her - most recently, those of her mother.

Drumming practice update:

Late on in her career, Lauren Bacall appeared in her first musical on Broadway, "Applause" - a huge success. It was most encouraging reading her accounts of all the practising she had to do since she was neither a singer nor a dancer. Amusingly, she also said that diet had been very important for getting in shape - "red meat of course". How times change. PS She lived till she was 89.

So, I'll be practising those doubles today! And walking around whilst doing them.

To be fair, I haven't missed a day's practice over the last 12 months and I'm much older and less talented than when Bacall embarked upon her singing and dancing regime.
