Long Music Day

We left the house about 8:30 this morning and didn't get home until after 3:30pm - that is a long day for us! But, it was a good day, with lots of music.

First up, was our weekly jam session with the Pickers. We played some Christmas music as well as our mountain music. Randy is getting better each week on the psaltry - he says he's enjoying it. I know I love having him there. :) We had a good couple of hours of playing and then we had to scoot to get lunch before we had to be at the senior center for our afternoon program.

Dick, Pat, Randy & I joined Ron & Ruth for lunch at a Chinese buffet restaurant. This particular Chinese buffet is the best one we've found. We typically go there each week after the Pickers jam with probably 15 or 20 others. Today we got there earlier than the others because of the afternoon gig.

Bellies full, we ventured over to the senior center to get set up for the JamNFolks performance. Mary Anne, our leader, wanted us there by 1:15 for set up and warm up, but the four of us get there about 12:35 'cause parking is at a premium when there is an event at this location. But, I'd much rather get somewhere early than be scrambling at the last minute.

The performance was very well received. We had a great group of musicians and the audience was generous with its applause and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Most of the music we played was Christmas music, but we did play a few of our favorite mountain pieces, too. The program lasted a little more than an hour.

J & I cooking up something . . .
And I guess I thought it was hilarious.
Since we've been home, we've pretty much been glued to our recliners. Randy was a bit more industrious than I - he made the bed and washed the dishes. I have watched TV and played on the computer. Of course, I was the one who had to perform today! :) The evening will be much like usual - TV and relaxing.

Not sure what's happening this weekend, but I'll be sure to share anything exciting! Well, probably anything boring, too. :) Until the next time . . .
