Today is my anniversary.  On June 20, 1981 I married my wife, Kathy.  In her honor I am going to tell you a little about her.

Kathy plays the piano, not the violin.  When she was growing up her mother absolutely hated her doing finger exercises on the keyboard.  Boring.  Monotonous.  For the listeners as well as the musician. 

Well, Kathy played her finger exercises in spite of her mother's displeasure, and so became much better at the piano than she would have otherwise.  (Even though Kathy was bored as could be and her mother was nearly driven insane . . . Suzuki parents can say, "Twinkle," here.)

In honor of my dear wife and her Mom I would advise you to  . . .






Play something fun today and then go get some ice cream.  I hate finger exercises too.
