This really isn't the bad news it may appear to be. As I have begun to enter the music of Beethoven's Ninth into Encore, I have realized that I need to be way ahead in that part of the task in order to have a decent perspective for the analysis. I'm also encountering some passages that make me go "hmmmm": There are still areas where I'm afraid Beethoven's late style just leaves my powers of analysis in the dust. I'm not really putting them under the microscope at this point, but there may be a few phrases that I just have to bail out of. Perhaps some readers can chime in with some help at those points. We'll see. In any event, I'll continue to enter the music and await the Mini's arrival.

A hearty "See y'all later!" from the Texas Alps.
