Yesterday a man called the house. How he got our number, I have no idea. Anyhow, he called and asked if we were the McAllisters of the group Voice Male. "Yes", I said. Well, he was given the HIMS II cd and just loves the song "Be Still My Soul" (which I happened to arrange). He is about 75 and has played the trumpet nearly all his life. He is having a special reunion in like a year and wants to play the song with his brass quintet. He wanted to buy the arrangement and I told him the book was available at Deseret Book or I happened to have a few copies at my home. So he drove to my house today to purchase the book and complimented me on my talents and asked if I would sign the inside cover of the book. Hee. I almost said, "really? Me?" but I just said "sure" and gave him my autograph. I guess I am a true "arteest". And for just a fraction of a second I felt famous.
