This day in history from:

Fluteston, we have a problem...

So there I was, yearning to practice my new flute (without the plugs) after a long hard day's work.

Did some scales, some arpeggio runs, some passages and some music pieces.

Then, all of a sudden, the flute gave out when I played E. Could not play it again, try as I may. I even reapplied the plugs...

Went to the adjustment screw and got some relief but not much. E1 and E2 sounded, yes, but the quality was way down.

And then I noticed the post at the offset G... it was loose. And lo and behold, the screw holding the G mechanism came loose, perhaps because of vigorous playing. But then again, I really don't know why that screw came loose.

Quickly re-tightened that screw and re-adjusted the G keys. Problem solved.

Whew! I though I had to bring my brand new flute back to the shop for repairs.

And so, my daily practice on my new flute moves along to get me used to playing without the plugs. Hopefully, there will not be any more problems.

Day three tomorrow. And happily, I'm getting used to playing it without the plugs. I just have to practice on it some more...

(Bear with me if you cannot understand some of the things I'm saying. Perhaps someday, if I had more time. I can illustrate the parts of the flute I was talking about.)

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
