Thank you for adding me.

I can see Badger Mtn. every day when I take my dog on our 3 mile walk along the bypass hwy. I've been about 3/4 of the way to the top, but haven't gotten brave enough to go all the way because my knees complain when I go downhill. Some day I'll get brave enough to try it, when my husband can go with me to help me down if I need it.

Idahohillbilly is my husband's CB handle in our Jeep club. He's from Idaho, but we've lived in the Tri-Cities nearly 50 years.

We played in a Monster Concert in that picture. Monster meaning: many pianos all playing together. I played in it for a couple of years with another piano teacher as my partner, but the last year my daughter was living at home, in grad school, and agreed to be my partner. It was fun. We were actually playing a lot of symphonic pieces written for two pianos, eight hands.

Thank you! I wondered how long the model had to remain still! Awesome!

And exhausting to even think about it! Every feather had to be painted on her!

Thanks for your comment - you brightened up my day!

huggers,
