Joel’s been able to set up all his music equipment here in Albuquerque. There’s plenty of room and since we’ll be here for several weeks, it gives him an opportunity to easily practice every day. He’ll be recording some of his music while we’re house sitting here.
Our new friend Larry is a musician. Last Saturday Joel sat in on Larry’s band practice. Larry is in two bands! Last night Joel and Larry got together and played. Larry plays the flute and the saxophone. Both he and Joel view music as much-needed therapy.
My ‘therapy’ this week was to prune the roses more and bring a few in for a nice bouquet.
This past Saturday we were privileged to stay with Errol, a musician Joel met one February at FAWM (February Album Writing Month). Another FAWMer, Debs, came over and the three musicians had fun playing the guitar, mandolin and piano together. Debs and Errol both live in Ontario and we had been privileged to stay with Debs on our way to Quebec in October.
Errol’s wife and two girls were away so Fiona was able to entertain the bunny all by herself! Fiona and Debs also had some fun making silly faces. I took some video as well of the musicians playing and singing – so bug Joel to get that posted!
