    ***off topic***

    Thanks for all the nice comments and encouragement everybody. I’m so glad, and even more relieved that some of you liked it. I was getting very nervous, especially after no one commented at all for several hours after I posted it. I was afraid it was really bad and everybody was just being too polite to say anything. Whew!

    Dexdon – Thanks for letting me know about Lori’s mentioning me. How about that?

    Akitas – Yes, my father was fascinated with Jazz, though not as much with the free-style, anything goes, unstructured form popularized by Miles Davis and other Jazz pioneers. He was more into the idea of incorporating the improvisational elements of Jazz into contemporary popular music. After my sister and I were born, he quit traveling and we settled here in Dallas, where he played for years in a small four-piece Jazz combo in the oldest, largest and most prestigious hotel downtown, the Adolphus Hotel. They played in an intimate lounge seating only about 150 people, called the King’s Club, and they were the house band that played behind almost any singer you can imagine, like Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, and many, many more, who would perform for a week or so at a time. There was also a huge showroom in the hotel, The Century Room, that would attract larger orchestras and specialty acts, like the bawdy “Breck Wall and His Bottoms Up Revue,” which was created and originally performed there, running for two years, and then went on to become the longest running comedy / dance revue in Las Vegas history. If you can believe it, they once even installed a retractable ice skating surface to accommodate the nightclub act of three time Olympic champion and film star, Sonia Henne, although that was a few years before my father arrived on the scene. The musicians and performers in those acts would invariably find their way to the smaller lounge where my Dad played, making it THE place to see and be seen. After he retired from playing, Dad went on to become the manager of that club, until it closed in the late sixties.

    Scrimmage – your dad’s life sounds fascinating!! I love music from all eras and genres, but one of my favorites is Jazz. When I was younger I used to go to concerts all the time and some of my favorites were: Michael Franks, Maynard Ferguson, and Hiroshima/Doc just to name a few. I recently saw Andrea Bucelli.

    thanks for sharing!!

    Scrimmage-Love what you've written about your dad. Also love your description of what happened to Lisa. Given your Dad's talents and the music you were surrounded with, I can understand your hilarious criticism of Steve's singing. I'm not entirely certain Olivia is pregnant. I think it's a cumulative allergic reaction to Steve's serenading her every chance he gets. Some advil and a bottle of tums nearby ought to help with her symptoms.

    Meowser- I would agree, but don't forget she is always pulling out that guitar.

    Akitas-You are right! They don't call her oblivia for nothing. She hasn't put 2+2 together yet concerning the allergy ! I'm always thankful for my mute button every time that guitar gets whipped out.

    Scrimmage: Its amazing when we make ourselves vulnerable how frightening that can be. I was surprised when I read that you were so nervous when you received no responses when you first posted - you seem very confident, well spoken and intelligent to me when reading your posts (we don't always agree, but I always enjoy reading your perspective. I didn't get a chance to read it until this morning, but again, extremely well written and interesting. I hope its given you a boost in confidence to keep writing, I understand that your putting yourself out there especially as the topic is so personal for you.

    Yeah, and how about that eh? (the canadian in me), thats really nice to know that they value the opinions of the posters.

    OT: Scrimmage I want to read the book, I want to read more. That was so interesting and you write so well that I was disappointed I didn't have the rest of the book in front of me -- I'm sure I would have finished it for the first time before I went to bed tonight. Thanks, and like everyone else I will respect your privacy though I was tempted for a moment....
