Another Dulcimer Gig

Thursday is one of two days per week that I have to get up and get moving in the morning (the other day is Tuesday). These days are dulcimer days, where I go to play music with two different groups. Both of these groups also perform for various events in the area.

Today the Jubilee Pickers had the regular rehearsal, or jam session as they prefer to call it, from 9am until noon. We had a gig at 1:30 at a local assisted living home. I had played at this home last year, too. The residents are always so appreciative of our efforts. Today we had a lady get up and dance to a couple of our livelier tunes - it was great! It is such a privilege to play for these folks.

I got home about 3:30 this afternoon. It was a long day. Randy & I were supposed to go over to the clubhouse for dinner tonight, but I begged off. My belly isn't feeling too good and I figured I didn't need to eat a big dinner. The menu sounded really good, though; roast turkey, cornbread dressing, green beans, and dessert. I sent Randy on over with Dick & Pat. I'm sure he is really enjoying it!

That's it from southern Alabama. It's supposed to be frigid tonight - in the low 20s. Now, I know there are some of you who are enduring that temp as a high, so I'm sorry I'm whining. Ya just don't expect it down here!

Until the next time . . .

  1. It's going to be cold here in Winterville tonight as well. Skylar is spending the night so we're turning the thermostat up to 74 for her. Her little brother is crying alot. I hope her mom gets some well deserved rest tonight.
