Default The Talented Roxie

It seems that athletics and stealth-ham-theft are not enough for our
overachieving Roxie. Now she aspires to opera.

Louie and I sing. We hooked up at a karaoke joint, did karaoke for our
wedding instead of the traditional first dance, and still go out
caterwauling 2 or 3 times a month. Louie's had musical training and has a
well-developed voice and excellent pitch, and he'll practice something to
sing at the bar with all the intensity of a Pavarotti or a Giovanni Jones.

Last night he was on an Alan Parsons Project freak, and was going through
that vast catalog, when Roxie came by his feet and started singing along in
a very sweet soprano voice. She was purring up a storm and rubbing herself
all over Louie as he practiced, moving into the Moody Blues, Yes, and Jethro
Tull. She is clearly a progressive-rock fan. Neither of us had the idea that
Roxie was so attracted to music. We have the radio going on more than the
idiot box, and she's been hanging around with us and the other cats. Who'd
have thought she was getting culture! Now we have to figure out the others;
Stosh and Brandy, I imagine are headbangers, while I imagine Odessa enjoying
new-age or minimalist jazz.

Fritzie (RB) also had prominent musical tastes. He couldn't abide Queen,
unless it was covers done by the Royal Philharmonic; at the first note from
Freddie Mercury he'd run all over the house and start tearing at things. I
discovered his favorites were jazz and classical, with kd lang and Lisa Loeb
thrown in for variety.

Roxie will be appearing at the Dome Stadium this weekend, performing "What's
New Pussycat?"

Blessed be,
Baha

Hee hee!

Nice to know I wasn't imagining things when I noticed that Misty(RB) used
to LOVE my mother's Frank Sinatra album. She had a reissued album of early
Frank Sinatra with I-forget-which band leader. But OOO, what a lovely
voice he had.

Misty thought so, too. She'd curl up next to the stereo speaker when the
album was playing. )

Melody(RB) never showed any particular musical preference, but Harmony(RB)
used to roll over and do upside-down kitty for opera singers. Particularly
sopranos.

Captain and Stanley haven't shown any musical preference. Yet. Give them
time. ;o)

Donna, Captain, and Stanley

go Roxie -- we like Alan Parsons a lot here, too! Tucker likes it when I
play the piano and he'll sit and perch on the piano and watch.

Another Alan Parson's fan. I have everything they ever did, including
"Freudianna"

I went to see an Abbey Road Tour (Beetles music) because he was part of the
group.
