Well, don't I feel like a idiot!! I am calling off the ferocious comment pooch! LOL
Truly, thank you all... I should know better, but I was surprised to only have three this am and I do look forward to them so much! Especially, when I first get on for the day!
So, sorry for that, everyone... and thank you!!!
Pumpkin is having her piano lesson here at the house again, just today. Her teacher, Mrs. G, has macular degeneration, which was stable but recently progressed that she cannot drive in twilight or night. So, since September, all the lessons have been at Mrs. G's house.
All the kids love this because Mrs. G has a $23,000 concert grand Steinway in her living room!! Mrs. G is an amazing lady, who is an accomplished pianist and graduate of Juliard.
After having children, she taught school in our town, and in fact, was my third grade teacher, 33 years ago! Yikes! Shhhhh... don't tell anyone I am that old! LOL
Mrs. G came to us today because Pumpkin insisted that something is 'off' with the piano and it is out of tune. I didn't hear it.
Guess what? Pumpkin was right on the money!!!! Mrs. G was very, VERY proud of her for being able to pick it up so quickly!!!
So, am I!! Pumpkin has such a gift. In three short years (the anniversary was this January), she has come a long way. She is already playing difficult composers, such as Lizst, before most would be able to try.
The difficulty is getting PUMPKIN to realize what a gift her natural ability is and that she could and should go far with it!
Anyhow, signing off again for now...
