Thursday, January 24, 2013

Love, love this time of practice with the local university has begun for 2013! Mon, Weds, and Fri, don't even look for me.....I'm there!

For those of you with band experience, you will understand the caption on the shirt:

"Last chair is better than no chair at all."

That's me.....last chair.......and LOVING IT!

    Happy Tunes, V. Being a token is an honor, like a token of affection, right?

    No band for me. I was not musically inclined. but I loved to sing and made the Choir every year. We even took State one year. Way to go.

    I wish I'd learned to play something...I'm a NO CHAIR (smile). I used to sing in a group, but even that has gone the way of my brown hair....

    Wow! Lots of good things going on and FOR FREE! I'm sure it's fun to be the "token old person".

I'm off to our last concert tonight for my group "You Gotta Sing". Next session starts Feb.20 and it's NOT FREE!

I can see from the picture that your wrist must not be a problem now with your playing. That's great!

    I am so proud of you. You are just so talented. I couldn't begin to pick up an instrument.
Enjoy every moment of this time.
You certainly deserve it after everything that you have been through.

    Have fun!! It is such a gift to play an instrument and be part of a band. It is a talent that I don't have and wish I did .. but I enjoy watching and listening when others play. So glad you have the "last chair" - I bet you are an inspiration to some of the younger musicians. Enjoy making music ,wish I could hear you all play. emoticon Peggy

    I got a chuckle out of your shirt . . . I didn't last long in band. I preferred singing so was in choir for several years. emoticon

    Wish I could come and hear your Band! I always wish I had learned to play an inChoir's and loved singing and learning about how to read music and sing. I did that all the way through College, but then Life got busy with work and eventually, marriage, military life and a family. Now that I have retired, I am disabled, and not sure any choir would even want me to try to sing with them, but I still love music, singing and listening to good music! Have fun!!!!
