The Soloist

Been away for awhile.  Raul got into a fender bender and the left front side of his car is demolished.  The person who hit him was an 18 year old kid so we'll see what happens with that.  Then my car broke down again because of the starter and my mechanic up and closed shop.  I got that squared away with a deal no less so I'm happy about that.

Since I had my car in working order, it made it easier to meet my girls at my fitting appointment on Saturday.  Seamstresses are amazing.  That's all I have to say.  I can't wait to see the results of all of those little pins marking every detail.

Sunday was Raul's nephew, Nick's, 13th birthday.  He's turning into quite the little man and quite the little guitarist.  He's growing up so fast and I'm not used to his voice changing.  I didn't even realize yesterday that he turned 13 on April 13.  It was his golden birthday.  Or is it champagne?  I forget, but you know what I mean.
