Last year for a treat he had a barbershop quartet serenade me at the Arts Academy. They popped up on the stage while I was teaching a violin lesson, and it took me a minute to realize what was going on. At first I thought, Do they think they can just rehearse up there while I teaching right here? Then I realized they were singing to me! I sat down and enjoyed it.

What's even more cheering is the weather we are having today: we hit a high of +8º, equivalent to 48ºF, made even nicer by an absence of wind. Utterly the best weather we've seen since we headed south last October!
We've rented out the condo we bought in Arizona for the long term. Our renter signed a year long lease, so we will be looking for other accommodations when we go there next October.
She didn't want to use all the furniture in the condo, so we made arrangements to store some of it. On January 29 I mailed a registered letter to the storage depot with a signed contract and the identification they needed to make the rental legal. Amazingly, that letter has still not been delivered! We could have driven back and forth three times since then.
The Canada Post tracking service shows that it was received in the U.S., in Los Angeles, on January 31. How can it take over two weeks to go from California to Arizona? I think I could walk that distance in two weeks! Next time I'll rely on a fax to send something like that!
