Okay, I kept saying I was gonna do it and I didn't do I'm doing it. Updating my blog, that is.

A couple of weeks ago I had a PET/CT scan. After I had worked myself into a frenzy over it, I found out that my breast cancer is still in remission. I am very thankful.

I finally made the decision to have my concertina repaired. I haven't played in years, ever since the woman who played with my daughter and me decided she no longer wanted to do it. She made me sort of guess at what was going on, and when I finally said, do you not want to play with us any more? she admitted that that was the case. I was shocked, bereaved, and angry. Passive-aggressive stuff always ticks me off.

Anyway, I stopped playing for a long, I didn't realize how long--it's been almost 15 years. So we'll see what it takes to be able to play again, especially with my shaky hands. Doesn't really matter, though; I'll only be doing it for fun. There's a waiting list at the Button Box, the store in Amherst, MA that will be doing the repairs. So it'll be several months before I have the concertina back.

God, these posts are dull, aren't they? Well, there's a small group of dedicated people who actually read them, so I do like to post every now and then. Thanks for checking in!

I try to check in to see how you are doing! I would love to hear you play - I tried to learn guitar when I was a kid, but I was too impatient. I still have the guitar sitting in the store room mocking me.

Thanks, Lynne :-) It'll be a long time before I'm as good as I once was, but I'm having fun with it!

Susan! Long time no see! I'm doing well, despite an awful virus during the holidays. I hope you check in here again, since I no longer have your email address. Hope all is going well with you and your husband.

Take care,
