It's good to be back in the saddle. I saw some favorite students yesterday, and we made progress, which is all I ask. Today is a long but fun day for me. I get to see my piano friend Alee, who is now eight. I've been working with her since she was four. She started on guitar but is now on piano. I also get to see my adult student, Jeanette, today, as well as Zane, who is six and likes to hide (quite poorly) under the piano before I come into the lesson room. I will attach a mermaid that Alee left in the lesson room a few months ago. I put it in my pocket and gave it back to her the following week.

So this is the famous ring that Alee left in the lesson room, it's cute.

Those kids sound pretty cute. I see you made it home okay. Are you going to share some pictures with us? I hope so.

You should teach her how to play and sing "Piano Man." It would be funny and ironic because she's a girl.

Another of my favorite songs. Along with "Seasons in the Sun."

@HaruLoid It is sought after my "enough" people. If you reached out, you could probably find students.

@TheHorse I do enjoy painting and drawing. Unfortunately, that is something rarely sought for by many.

It's nice when you have the one student for a number of years.

Yeah. She can be a pill, but I enjoy interacting with her. Today, she did her usual "delay tactics," but we got some learnin' done.
