Home in the choir room
It passed the sit test.
Yes, I could actually sit during the practice and concentrate on my singing rather than my sitting.
The choir librarian laughed at the 21 quilted into the center square. Before she passes out the music, she pulls out the 21 and hands it to me.
The sopranos just couldn't figure out why I am so fixated on #21. I showed them a copy of my music with the tenor part highlighted with side notes ... turn quickly ... and watch here.
Behind the chair is another family member.
I am not a pianist, but the very first thing I saved for after coming to Japan was a used piano, setting aside one thousand yen from my English teaching each week.
That piano lasted a long time including a trip to the states and back. When it began to have issues, I traded it in on another piano ... a bit newer, German but assembled in Japan.
When we moved back to our small house, there was no wall space for it to live. I decided rather than trying to sell it, I would donate it to the church. The lady who kept the piano tuned twice a year, went to our church and tested all the pianos they had. It was determined this was better than all the others and it went to the choir room. Now I get to see and hear it twice a week. I miss having a piano at home but I am happy that it is appreciated and used more than I ever would have. I wonder if the cushion and piano are comparing notes when no one is around....
Tonight Cub Pack 51 meets to start our new season. Games are ready to go. am I??? That is to be seen.
