My so-called weekend
Friday: I played piano and flute for the holiday house walk sponsored by the Villager's Club of Bloomingdale. What a gas! I played piano from 3:00 to 6:00 pm and then two flutist friends arrived around 6:00 pm and we did some trios, and some flute and piano. It's such a shot in the arm because everyone thinks you are wonderful. It's all volunteer and helps raise money for local charities and I love to do it!!
When I finally got home I got a message from the Bloomingdale women's club asking me to play piano for their December meeting. I agreed and asked if I could bring a friend who both sings and plays the flute. Their only reservation was that they couldn't afford to pay two people. Pay us? Once I stressed that it's not about the money she admitted it would be fine. Hey, we'll make some music for an hour and go cash the check and hit the bar!
