Thanks, Natalie. I'm so glad Camellia's birthday was NOT her scheduled Bath-and-Spray Day! I AM trusting she'll have a nice, long life!

Camellia is waving her Magnificent Magic Wand - possibly testing to make sure she doesn't have Cold Tail.

Don't be silly, Mummy; I don't have Cold Tail (00)

You could get it, though, Camellia, if you go out in the Cold when you're Wet. ;-^

Just ask Jack what it feels like, and maybe you'll stay in when you're wet. ;-^

Oh. Well, maybe it's a good idea to stay in when I'm wet. But if you wouldn't give me baths, I wouldn't get wet. (00)

Camellia does something similar, except she's standing on the floor, and rubs up against the hanging throws, especially, the daybed one, but sometimes the sofa one.

Mostly, though Camellia seems to be wiping the sides of her face, and I think maybe she's trying to dislodge bits of food caught between her teeth and the sides of her cheeks. She doesn't do it for very long.

And I haven't especially noticed her watching me to make sure I'm watching, so I guess it's not really the Wrigglies she's doing!

Camellia sends greetings to you and Hank, and so do I!

Love and hugs,

Is probably still technically wrigglies since I think that is likely what Hank is doing as well. Mostly after a meal and it does seem to involve his head quite a bit. Gee, thanks dude, for getting dog food on my sofa...LOL Ah well...DO so love the wrigglies!

And greetings back to you and Camellia! From us both, too!

Shellie - somehow, Camellia manages to do this without leaving food deposits, which makes my life easy - of course, her face is clipped down; she has essentially no beard.

Yeah, well, Camellia does that, but on the day bed, primarily. Also when she has the zoomies after a bath.

Doing it running around the coffee table strikes me as being very athletic and brave! (hehe)

Itt = Butt.... you are so correct. Yes typo. I type on a keyboard, that has sticky keys, or on an ipad which likes to fill in the words for you.

Ugh..

I hate keyboards like that. Mouses, too My mouse is jumpy, and does things I don't intend, like double-clicking when I only made a single click. Ouch!

I get unwanted results. Sheesh!

Mummy, you could let me handle the mouse; I'd do a better job than you would. (00)

Okay, Camellia - it's a deal! And you can type for me, too! ;-^

Thanks, Mum. I'll type better than you, too. (00)

Arrow Re: Camellia Camelo - links for handpan jams at home

Colin Foulke, handpan-player and teacher and counselor extraordinaire, arrived here Thursday 17 May 2012, about 2:45 p.m., a few minutes earlier than I expected him. He left Sunday morning 20 May at 6:15 a.m., on schedule for his next jam sessions, with a friend on the mainland (BC, Canada).

My place is small, but we both fit in just fine, because Colin is the most wonderfully EASY houseguest to accommodate.

He'd been up since 4:30 a.m., yet, Thursday evening (17 May) played for over an hour for a dance class instructed by my neighbor Melody. I took Camellia with me, as she still can't be left home alone for longer than 10 minutes or so.

I couldn't record that event, as the light was insufficient. I danced a little myself, and otherwise, sat on the bench beside Colin, listened, and watched the dancers.

Apart from the fact that Colin played during any free-time period, here at the house (oh, GLORY! - his music is incredibly sweet and beautiful - all improvised, you understand), I got SOME bits recorded with my simple Point-and-Shoot camera. So this post is a pointer to links where you can watch Colin play, and listen to his music.

As for Camellia, the entire event, lasting three days, was pleasant enough, because she liked the music, but it was also flooding her badly; she couldn't get anything like enough rest. So Sunday, after Colin left, she simply slept all day; no walk; and the same yesterday, Monday. She seems more rested today - but she has a three-hour grooming session today! She'll hold up fine; she was clowning this morning like her usual self.

Here's the definitive (as of right now) list of links where you can see Colin playing in my house, see him teaching a couple of the dancers from Thursday night (Maeve and Caroline), see him and me playing together (he brought two handpans with him, and I was playing for the first time in my life, though I did have a bit of practice before the big session in the park.

We were blessed with good weather.

Colin is invited back here ANY time he can come! I think Camellia would be more comfortable on a second visit.

Here's the list.

My dear, dear friends.

I like to share my fun, at least a LITTLE bit, with all of you!

So, stuff you might enjoy looking at and listening to.

How Colin Foulke came to visit: Thread on Handpan forum:

The thread is huge, and if you want to start with the reports of the jam session in Shirley, you can start here instead:

Colin arrived Thursday 17 May 2012, mid-afternoon. It didn't take him long to unpack, and he began playing one of the greatest of the world's pans - made by Victor Levinson of St. Peterburg, Russia. Victor is a genius at making these. HE doesn't call them "SPBs," but members of the forum (handpan.org) call them that (for "Saint Peterburg").

Thursday 17 May 2012

Colin arrives; plays for welcoming committee: Melody and Ron, and me.

The female voice in that clip is Melody.

(Thursday evening, played for Melody's NIA dance class, for over an hour; no photos nor video available.)

Friday 18 May 2012:

Fun at home, with dance students of Melody Kimmel (NIA)

Colin plays a bit, shows daughter Maeve and mother Caroline something about playing.

Maeve dances. In my tiny home!

All this stuff will give you some idea of the handpans.

The video that originally got me hooked was this one, by two young cousins from France.

Colin left early Sunday morning to visit a friend on the mainland who also plays; they undoubtedly had wonderful jams, last night and today, and Colin returns home this afternoon or evening, and goes back to work as a math tutor tomorrow.

His entire visit was just wonderful!
