Hi, All,

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. I've been crazy-busy practicing and doing performances. I've done three house concerts in the past few weeks, and the amount of time it takes to get ready has dropped a little as I begin, at last, to get pretty grooved in on some of my more popular songs such as Lost Luggage Blues, Ms. Dynamite, and Better Get Packin'.

I also took time out to go to Seattle to spend Thanksgiving with our family. Whenever I'm with our three granddaughters (ages 9, 8, and 6) I enjoy doing various music activities with them. The nine-year-old is a pretty good piano player and I've had a lot of fun demonstrating how to improvise around the chords to Heart and Soul. One of my main Grandpa duties is to make sure that they get lots of opportunitis to make music, not just listen to recordings. All three of them are interested in learning and performing popular songs, so I sometimes help them with that, which is a blast. All three of them are amazingly internet savvy.

More later...
