French Horn Rebellion – Cold Enough (ft. Jody Watley)
Just when all the snow from the blizzard had finally disappeared from the yard, another snow storm is headed our way. Sigh.
I know the snow won’t stick around long but we were beginning to see signs of spring here and there. A witch hazel bush in bloom, a handful of brave crocuses, fat buds on the trees, it’s lighter later and in just a few days we set the clocks ahead, We’re nearly there. But I sure wish it wasn’t going to be cold enough for it to snow. I’ll take raw, cold rain over snow every time. I know, it’s not pretty, but you also don’t have to shovel it.
The brothers of French Horn Rebellion crack me up and as a former French Horn player myself, I appreciate the name. I can just picture a frustrated dance party aficionado stuck playing the horn in the symphony. It reminds me of that scene in Dazed and Confused when they’re in the car and Mike is telling his friends he doesn’t want to go to law school. When they ask him what he does want to do, he says, “I wanna dance!” If you’ve never seen the movie, you should definitely watch it, especially if you’re old enough to remember the 70s. Or maybe, especially if you’re not old enough.
