Today is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. Mary ended up doing the lectoring. Sean's & Shannon's baby boy, Maxfield Kenneth, was born yesterday in the State of Washington. Today is Tina's birthday. She's Gary & Maria's daughter. Tonight is also the twenty ninth anniversary of the shooting death of Beatle John. The founder of the Fab Four was murdered by Mark David Chapman outside the Dakota apartment building in Manhattan. For some stupid reason, the driver of an eighteen wheel truck got the bad idea to try to get onto Eighth Street this morning by way of Wyoming Avenue. He kept people stranded at the intersection, made a complete fool of himself, & drove everybody else nuts for quite a long time. After a while the guy right in front of me turned right & got onto Sixth Street. So did I. I'm still playing my guitar. The scales & arpeggios get a bit stale after a while but things like that are unavoidably necessary.
