This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

The Turner In His Tux

It was a Friday night long, long ago.  Rick Terry (from PCC/HIU) and I presented a two-piano concert at FCC.  It was quite the event!  

My assistant for the evening was the one and only William A. Baker, freshman music major. Ah, Billy, you were great.  Here's my way of thanking you for a job well done!!!

Since Kristi posted that 1995 picture of herself and Curtis, I thought a 1992 memory would be in order as well.  Note that Rick and I haven't changed a bit.  ROFL!!!!!

Two Words:
Dang! and Concentration!

Kristi said...

OH MY GOSH!!! Curtis and I just watched that and were LAUGHING OUT LOUD! See, I remember my dad looking like that...but BILLY?????? Oh my...were you 12 or 13? What am I saying, you probably already had 3 kids by then.

Wow!!! See, I am too scared to put in any smart remarks in case someone has any pics of me so just Wow. Although you have both aged wonderfully. :)

Brian and I watched that together---he laughs at first because he saw you, but he didn't read the blog to see that it was billy and then he laughed even harder. I don't think I have ever seen Billy that serious before. Very funny.

Believe it or not we weren't married then. Whew! I think we'd been dating for only a short while. The line I sold to my friends then and I still purport today is this: I was investing in the future. I knew he was going to grow someday. Thankfully that all worked out! (He weighed all of 125 lbs in that picture. Yikes!)
