Ain't She Sweet?
Our group, the YesterUkes, is as much about friendships we have developed as about the music we love to play. Lately, we've had several of our players out with an assortment of ailments. That saying, "old age isn't for sissies", has a certain amount of truth to it. So, today we were delighted to have one of our uke players and her spouse back at practice. We hope the others are on the mend and will be back soon.
We did talk today about the possibility of a "hospital hootenanny" after one player has knee surgery in a few weeks. Wonder if it would help the healing or only get us all thrown out of the building? And probably banned forever. But research has shown that music is theraputic. We will manage some way to send a musical greeting, without a doubt.
After all the hugs, greetings and visiting, it was time to get down to business and work on songs for next week--a large dinner program for volunteers. "Work" may be the wrong word because for us, it's "play"!
