It was the school sports festival last week. It was good partly because it made it a light work-week for me but also because it was good to watch some of the departments going head to head. I don’t know who won overall but the Emergency Medical Technicians seemed pretty strong, as was Physical Therapy. I suppose it’s all the battering and pounding of chests they do. There seems to be a lot more ‘school spirit’ at this place compared to the last place I worked—and a lot less drinking. All up I’m still thanking my lucky stars for the myriad of little things that’ve improved between last year and this.

  1. ‘a lot less drinking’. bwah ha.

    today raise a glass to Stax/Volt soul and the bass runs Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn has left behind for us always.

  2. I really liked a quote I saw on theBBC obit. Donald was talking about early on and he first picked up a guitar but there were too many strings! Bass had 4 strings so it was easier. — Great to see a professional muso would admit to that – and it’s something I can identify with. I play guitar these days but at heart really I’m a bassist. That was what I first picked up.
