Go, Granny, Go!

This evening Coeurimba played for Ramsey Elementary's open house. It was a lot of fun, and we played until it was too dark to see! Starting at the far left of the picture you can just see Char who is playing the baritone. Julie is on bass, Tina is down in front of her on soprano, Eileen is playing a frog (rhythm) - she's standing in the back. Bob is wearing the ball cap playing a soprano, Sally is facing him and I'm behind her. You can just see the top of Denise's head next to Char! We do have fun together!

Here I am playing the tenor and Sally is playing the soprano. It was quite the different performance with little kids standing right next to us - sometimes grabbing a mallet and trying to play along!
That's me and Julie Powell playing together. She had her own open house to attend at Lakes Middle School later in the evening, so we had to do all her songs first!
There's me again, this time Char is playing the tenor behind me. We did have lots of fun! Music is great! The people I play with are a cool group. Char teaches elementary school in Spokane, Julie and Sally are both music teachers in the district, and Bob and Eileen are involved in music at NIC. Tina teaches marimbas in the morning before school with Julie. Only one member of our group is not involved professionally with education, (Denise) but we like her anyway!
Grandpa missed my first bass performance, and he wanted a picture of me playing that instrument, so he had me play something during the break so he could get a good picture - but I kept hitting wrong notes, and it made me crazy! (oh, wait, I've been crazy for a long time now, so that didn't just happen!) Anyway, it was lots of fun and the crowd loved us!

Yeah Mom! Some people leave nasty notes on blogs, but I will leave a nice one! Those pictures were great! Ava really misses the marimba sessions with you!

Hello Marilyn! OK, I love the pictures. I love the site and now I'm hooked. I finally found a way to make my own site. It' just beginning, but I can see how it could be very addicting! We'll see you on the walk in the morning. My site address is:

You are not crazy, just busy! At least that is what I tell myself a lot lately. The pictures are great. I can't wait to show the girls when they wake up in the morning how cool their grandma is!

At your next gig try and get some pictures of the "mosh pit" and you stage diving into the crowd, that would be awesome... Just Kidding. That looks like so much fun. Keep on Rockin in the Free World!
Love, Bud
