Hannibal Music Session
Tonight was session in
On a sad note, Chris announced that he and Melanie will be moving to
The players tonight were Chris on tenor banjo … Ava on fiddle … Doug on mandolin and tenor banjo … Sondra on tenor banjo and mandolin … Joann on whistle … Beverly on whistle, percussion and mandolin … Dwain on guitar … Larry on fiddle and mandolin … Don on bass … Jeanie, I think she just listened tonight … Clayton on five string banjo …
In the audience were Andrew … George … Harry … Ellen … Noel … Mary Jo …
Now, I’m sure there were other people there, so please forgive me if I left anyone out. It’s never intentional.
I got to play the washboard tie tonight! It was pretty fun. Very different! It’s made like a washboard … only in the shape of a tie and it clips onto your shirt. You put metal thimbles on your fingers and that’s how you play it. It was fun! I may need one of those!!
John took Chicken Reel to work on this week. He always takes a new song every week to work on. He’s doing really well. I think he is having fun with it. J
Lisa brought me some moving boxes from work. I was very grateful! They’re really good boxes. With lids! That will be great for storage.
Sarah is going to rebind my old chord book. I hope that she still has some of the wider combs left. It would sure bring some life back onto the book. I use it for lessons, but it would still be nice to be able to flip through it easier than it is now. I’ve had it for a long time and just plain worn it out. Poor thing.
It was good to see Ned … it had been a while!
I gave Clayton his covered bridge sketch. I was very honored that he wanted it. That's the first time that anyone has ever wanted one of my sketches.
I missed Melanie, Betsy, Dale, Adam, Fred, Paul, Evelyn H, Evelyn D, Bob, Charlie … I missed my kiss from Charlie, Suzie … as well as anyone else who was missing. Everyone adds to the group and you’re all missed when you’re gone.
I ordered some bread sticks with garlic and cheese and a Pepsi. Mmmm … it was good, but I couldn’t eat it all.
We noticed that the restaurant changed their sign on the door from closing at to closing at now. I think we left right at . Didn’t want to get kicked out!!! Been there! Done that!
It was a good night and I had fun. It’s good to spend an evening with friends. It’s good to play music and enjoy yourself doing it. It’s good just to sit and talk once in a while and listen.
Until next time …
May you live life
Like every minute counts!
Take time for the little things.
Well, I'm at a loss because I didn't see the musical Rent. But I do have tons of fun playing music!!! And yes, I can see how our similar "catch phrases" would remind you of one or the other. And I must say that they both have good rhythm to them!!! That's important!!!
Thanks for stopping by the blog!!
