We've had a lot of rain here in west central Ga. The ground is saturated and there have been some tornadoes in some parts of the country. So, lots of folks experiencing hard times and difficulty on this usually festive evening.
Me, the day is almost done, I got to visit with my two sons and my two grandchildren and call other close relatives. So, it's been a good day.
I just spent about an hour in my piano shop playing the heck out of my Howard/Kawai 550. I still can't get over how good that piano sounds, in spite of needing a set of new bass strings; of course, what's there ain't bad.
I played my usually repertoire, except for "I'll be home for Christmas". Then, it was "Georgia on my mind"; "I can't stop lovin you"; "Hey good lookin"; "Tuti-Fruti"; "Old time rock-n-roll"; "Blue Berry Hill";"That's alright mama"; some fast boogie-woogie and an assortment of my original tunes. All the sugar I've consumed over the Holidays has put my playing in high gear, on top of being hyper anyway.
A nice way to end a Christmas day evening, after consuming a few thousand more calories than I usually do.
So, yes, it's been merry, and happy so far... I hope it has for everyone else, and my heart goes out to those who have suffered loss, injury and death in the recent storms.
