Favorite Pretenders Songs

Yesterday my brother took my son Bay to Arroyo Seco Weekend and one of my all-time favorite bands, The Pretenders played! 🎸 I’m so jealous of Bay… Anyways, I saw that they played my favorite Pretenders song, “Kid”. I wish I could have seen that live! BTW, the album cover above is Pretenders II, the first record I ever bought. I remember riding my 10-speed bike home from either Licorice Pizza or The Wherehouse trying to hold onto the bag and not crash. 🚲😨

こんばんは。How’s it going?

So, continuing with the music theme that has dominated the family news lately, Koa has started taking piano lessons. His first class was tonight and he said it was fun but tough to remember all the fingering for the scales. I’m excited to hear his progress, though! And it was fun to dig up Bay’s old piano books for Koa to use. 懐かしい!

In other news, Bay is getting ready to head off to a summer architecture camp. He’ll be gone for four whole weeks! It’s at USC, though, so it’s nice that my family in California can take care of him. I hope he learns a lot and enjoys living in the dorms. I know I had a great time during my university years! They grow up so fast, don’t they?

I hope you had a great day!
