The Thing is to Try

Adella is out for regionals tomorrow. She and her clarinet have been glued to each other for the past month. After each practice session, there was a clarinet-shaped spit mark on the thigh of her jeans and a sore spot on her thumb that said, "Hard work!"

The music was all over the floor as she made her way through the etudes and a few other odds and ends.

Clyde was a faithful friend, though I do think sometimes the music is hard on his puppy ears. Sometimes he left the practice session to see if anybody was having a snack upstairs and to check on his toy basket, but he always made his way back to his girl and did what he could, which was to be there.

He kept a watchful eye over the all-powerful cell phone,

but he couldn't answer it, so Della did. Everyone needs a break.

Della's got a friend coming with us for moral support tomorrow. It's cool. She knows the thing is to try. She's got talent, and she feels the music, but the thing is to try. She's got guts, and I admire her for her courage and her effort.

  1. I am sure that with Clyde's supervision and support that Adella is ready for the competition. I so admire those that can do such things. Go girl!

  2. What would we do without our four-legged supporters and I'm sure he will do a great job just as I'm sure Adella will do well in the competition! I'll be holding good thoughts for all of you, Sandy! Go Della girl, indeed!

  4. With the constant practice sessions Adella is building up her resolve which should bear fruit. 'Hard work' as indicated is the catch word! Best of luck to Adella! Clyde and every one are behind you! Nicely Sandy!

  12. Oh good for her. And Clyde. :) I wish her the very best of luck. She has lovely, musician hands. My mother always noticed artistic hands and I seem to have taken that over. Good luck, sweet Adella!

  13. Hope the clarineting goes well - my son is learning as well - his eyes bulged a bit when I showed him the picture of the music!

    I take it you will be happy about the election!
