Pre-Digital-Devices Fidget Spinner

My pre-band, pre-digital-devices fidget spinner may have accomplished something. Held on sides w/thumbs and spun w/other fingers. My parents and grandparents said I would spend hours at it. Isn’t that the purpose of the current electronic version of fidget spinners; to entertain and calm?

Nimble fingers help high-speed clarinet-ing?

Perhaps I should have marketed the concept (anybody remember pet rocks?).


17 yrs experience as a high school band director. 14 yrs as college adjunct faculty. 30+ yrs in the fundraising industry and 24 yrs as a small business owner. (Don't add all those up.). Experience in both the fundraising sales and education worlds give me a unique combination of perspectives in both. I love working with the youthful enthusiasm of today's teenage achievers and with those who work with them. Also 4yrs as proprietor of, which offers a wide variety of virtual services including web/blog design/hosting/managing, social media management (scheduling posts/tweets for maximum impact and brand enhancement) and small business consulting - specializing in school product fundraising.
