Really Listen 

It’s late and I’m really tired but I can truly say that I managed today’s task perfectly.

I spent the morning decorating the house with Ron. The early afternoon decorating for our Christmas party. I had a stellar walk in the cold with the dogs. I hardly glanced at my phone during any of this. The exception was  while parked on campus as I didn’t want a ticket and that’s how I was renewing my time.

The evening was spent at a noisy fun dinner and dance. Chances are I won’t even remember where I put my phone or my little purse. Safe to say that I’ll be listening, as well as one can, in a huge crowd of happy noisy people.

A good time was had by all as the band just rocked! Who knew a bunch of medical people could play and sing that like! I’d post a picture but never once used my phone so can’t do that. Although a day later modern technology gave me a photo (thanks JB).

Good night and sweet dreams.

      We aren’t quite done. Then I will do some. I could do my outside two — they are looking very festive.

    Love it! The coffee shop I stopped at this morning had cups labelled as “the original hand-held device for catching up with people.” Hah.

    Who’s in the band? I feel like I recognize a few faces with the mental addition of scrubs and caps, but not all…

      Well — Michelle Elash and Nel Catagpang OR nurses on vocals. Eric (hm no last name comes to mind) perfusion on vocals. Maten Raazi on drums and rocking a few vocals. Zane Tymchuk brought down the house on vocals (also played violin in a few songs). Murray Deese (anaes) on guitar and he was stellar along with an ER nurse named Kip (who I joked his last name should be Moore) when he belted out a C and W song. Joanne Marquee (perfusion) on keyboard and vocals, Caralynne (her partner) on guitar and Gaye Peters (Medtronic) keeping it all together. There was also a guy on sax — pretty sure he is an ER ?doc? When off stage he talked with Susan Shaw, Krissie Urmson and Alan Woo at length.
      It was such a blast — danced pretty much every song. For a bunch of medics it’s amazing how together they sounded.
