I was asked to join this band to play for a centennial celebration on July 4th. SInce I had nothing else planned for July 4th (I used to have to stay home because I had a dog terrified of fireworks and the big firework displays are visible from my house!) so I thought this would be fun. And then I find out today that we're getting paid to play. YAY! If they only knew how much we band players do without getting paid....LOL.
Mom had a good visit, and got to hear the CBC Concert Band play at a retirement center - good patriotic music: marches, Cole Porter, and such from the 30's-50's. Took her to my applique groups's lunch & sewing on Wednesday. She told them it was like visiting a pet store at my house....LOL. And of all the animals, I made her sleep in the same room with the rat. (Scarface is one rat with a huge personality but I didn't know that she didn't like him until then...oops) Guess I'll have to move some animals around before next time she stays here.
Hope everyone is staying cool today - happy weekend! :-D
