Tunder coming, Mummy, tunder.

I love thunder. Actually, come to think of it, I also like deep voices and percussive music (even had a crush on a tympani player during art camp one summer). One of my favorite pieces of music is the 1812 Overture (I have a version with actual Napoleonic cannons).

You might like the fireworks display on the Fourth of July in Colorado Springs. There is a concert in the park and the last piece in the 1812 Overture. When it's time for the cannons, real ones from Fort Carson are fired. Very impressive. I hope they still do this. It was many years ago that I attended and sat out rain under a quilt. BHD

They had a program like that at the Antietam Battlefield too. Of course, I haven't been able to go to that in years. It was lovely.

Hey, who used to say "Tunder coming, mummy, tunder"? Was it you? I can't remember, I just remember us repeating it all the time (as usual)! :-)

I don't actually remember saying it myself, but I remember Mummy telling me that I said it. I do remember it being repeated. "Somebody's water's boiling" and "Knock funny" are similar.
