ON THE BACK BURNER

April 25

I take it back. The landscapers came back and planted a really nice blooming tree which is about 6 feet tall. Around it they planted some boxwood plantings. I know that my assessment will now go up. But it is very nice and I didn't know we needed to have something removed and replanted in that same space. See what you just don't know. Along those lines, as I was walking Noodle in the early morning, I had a thought . How do we know so much? When did we learn it? I recognize different Operas, even if I have only gone to one. How did I absorb the music enough to recognize where it came from. We didn't listen to Opera when I was growing up. We only had a radio and we only played it to listen to special serial shows. I took one music appreciation course in college. And had a really hard time, identifying the different instruments. I remember learning," I am Antionette the clarinet". So how do I know. Then , the other day, I started singing"onward Christian soldier" . How did I know the words . Where did I learn that. Maybe it was the little brown music book we used in grade school. Things that I am supposed to know , like directions or spelling, isn't as clear as the things that I just know. How does this work?
