I am not going to be playing the piano in the LoneStar Antique Mall Tea Room for a while, well, until there is a vaccine for the coronavirus.
Now you may think that is crazy - and WAY overprotective.
Do I care what you think???
My whole life I've cared what people think...
(Well, I still care.)
Anywho, my hubby does NOT want me to play till there is a vaccine for the coronavirus.
Of course I humbly submit to my hubby.
Frankly I was needing a break.
I've been playing background music for over 14 years! I have LOVED IT!!!
Last fall, though, we found out I had to quit playing tunes that were written after 1924. OR pay a big price to play them, OR pay a big license fee to play them.
So I was playing "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain When She Comes" in many different styles. (You know, you really can vary any song up a bit. Yeah.)
Here's a picture of the last time I played in the tea room.
DO I MISS IT?
I particularly miss my dear friends there!!
Bu now I'm on hold.
I talked to Ronnie, the owner/manager, telling him that I might need to just quit playing period. Ah, but he told me to take one day at a time, and the piano will still be there.
He said "We are family." And he also said he could appreciate Sam's not wanting me to play until there is a vaccine. After all, I am of the older set of people nowadays. I'm 68 1/2.
So there you have it.
'Course this news may make no difference in your life, but well, I am missing playing, but I can play at my house.
Since we've downsized we've made our dining room into a piano room. We weren't eating in there anyway. And it's kinda like playing in the shower - lots of echos.
So that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
