the law of gravity

Today I finally made the decision to acknowledge the fact, that the law of gravity applies to me too. I am 52 years old and certain parts of my body are definitely in a downward trend. So, in an effort to slow down the process, I invested in some light support today. This was the first time in over 35 years that I shopped for a bra. Not an easy task, considering I didn't even know my size. We'll see how long I can stand the discomfort of a piece of underwear that obstructs normal breathing.

P.S. (for those of you who were hoping for foto documentation with this post)......

Sorry guys, you'll have to use your imagination.

learning Melanie Oesch's KuKu-Jodler

This song is the reason why I wanted to learn how to yodel.
*Oesch's die Dritten* won a yodeling contest in Switzerland with that KuKu-Jodler. After teaching myself the basics of alpine and cowboy style yodeling, singing along with a couple of CDs, in my car on the way to work and back, I finally feel good enough to take on the song that got me started.

I made myself a slowed and transposed down recording of the original performance to work with. By now, I think I'm getting there - just need to speed up a little. Let's hope I don't get pulled over for driving with a camera taped to the dashboard.
