Yesterday delighted us with a nice sunny afternoon, the perfect day for sitting on the back porch.
Chuckles and I spent a lot of time out there this weekend. We saw a bald eagle soaring above our backyard on Saturday, and yesterday I saw my first hummingbird of the season.
I also saw my first flautist of the season.
My stepdaughter Lindsay came over with her boyfriend yesterday, and she brought her flute with her. Now, it's not very often I get to use the term 'flautist', so it was a red-letter day!
She used to play flute in high school, and decided to start playing around with it again. We put on Marshall Tucker Band's "Can't You See", and she played along. It was awesome!
She brought it over in a cool case that looked like it should have held a gun or something. Like Antonio Banderas' guitar case in "Desperado".
My other stepdaughter, Desiree, is a really talented singer. I'll have to get some good video of her singing The Beatles' "Yesterday", it'll bring a tear to your eye (in a good way).
I wish I was more talented in the musical arts. I can hold a tune, but it doesn't sound that amazing. I'm mediocre on the guitar. I think I may still be able to pound out a few notes of "Für Elise" on the piano. I played when I was young, but I quit because I hated to practice. I wish I wouldn't have now. Ah, the follies of youth.
I'm interested to know what ya'll (hehe, I said ya'll) out there are good at. Doesn't have to be musical. Everybody's good at something, don't be shy!
Or even if you're into something that other people wouldn't expect...you don't have to be good at it, it still counts!
Hell, even if you don't think you're talented at anything, and you just want to use the word 'flautist' in a sentence, leave a comment anyway.
