Sammy Saturday: on amps and birthmoms
Me: Why do you like to play the bass with an amp?*
Sam: Because it is really fun when you crank it up all the way to 100.
Me: What do you think about when you play music?
Sam: I get in my mode. I am thinking about going to play the bass loud. I’m good at music not speaking about it.
Me: Sam, what is one thing you are wondering about our trip West in two weeks?
Sam: I am wondering if Tea is going to like me or not.
Me: What do you think the answer is to that?
Sam: Because she has always loved me.
Two weeks to go. And we’re only $400.00 from our goal, which I am certain we’re going to reach. We were buying snacks for our carry on bags today. Thank you to the most recent contribution of $25.00 from Ms. C. C. of Maine. Feeling tremendous support and confidence from all of you! I had a dream that I woke to a contribution from Sandra Bullock for $10,000. The universe clearly has big plans for us! THANK YOU SANDRA and all!
* For being so big and brave in the world, Sam earned his first amp. It’s a 40 watt machine I gather. And was fabricated some time in 1970 near as I can tell. It’s plenty loud for us.
