So. How Was the Music Session?

   The music appreciation lesson was exhausting.  Sheila talked to Doris any time I wanted to speak. How she managed to time it was amazing.  I am sure she heard NOTHING of what I said.
 
Before the session I took the daily song book with the orange cover and put it out of sight so it would not distract. Today is different..not fun and fitness.  I put it behind the drape but left an inch showing.  Mistake.  Semi-autistic Jeanie spotted it during the lecture.
 
"Orange paper," she screamed.
"There are 47 strings on a harp," I continued
"ORANGE. ORANGE PAPER." screamed Jeanie..
"And seven foot pedals the harpist has to use." I said.
"ORANGE PAPER. ORANGE PAPER. BEHIND THE DRAPE"
"That's the song book.  I put it there."
"Oh."Said Jeannie
 
It was exhausting.  Finally the 35 minutes were over.  I would say "never again" but I am on the schedule for next Saturday too.

    If I didn't feel your frustration, I'd say this was a funny story. Keep plugging along, Chuck. Life can be rough.
