September 29 - Surprise Party


Chatting with


Michael Stubblefield briefly after


Theory (W.A. Mozart Sonata in C Major, K. 545, for Dictation / Keyboard-Solfege / Board Harmony), he mentions that he has just subbed for Owen.  Upon exiting the Music Building, Matt Rizzo asks if I am subbing for Theory II?


Glad to oblige (turns out an email was sent only recently to this effect), and we proceed with roughly the topics of the past period, augmented a bit by matters of Orchestration and Voice-Leading.

September 28 - Chasing the Moon


Up early,


down Hilborn,


Suisun,


I-


80,


across


the


marshes of



37,


diverting to Atherton. 


Melissa's office calls, and we determine that the 8am appointment will not work, rescheduling to 11.  With extra time, more diversions down Sunset and


Las Gallinas,


west to the post box,


and east


via North San Pedro towards


China Camp State Park. 


A


brief


jaunt


to


the


top of


Bullet Hill,


returning in


good time


for the rendezvous. 


Upon entering the offices, dodging no less than three mobile-challenged individuals, discover that the power is out... so no dental work after all, and not even an immediate re-scheduling since all the computers are down (so much for backups). 


Onward,


across the bridge to visit Carol,


and


return


for another session at


Vacaville Medical Center with


Kam Chan, who pronounces the compromised elbow at an end (maybe), and throws in a


flu shot, to boot. 


From here, errands and
