The cats like to make trouble in the night,and when I woke up this morning my glasses weren’t on my nightstand. That is a problem for a blind lady who isn’t very tidy. After looking for a while I asked Lloyd for help. He grabbed at something under a shelf, but it wasn’t my glasses, it was my harmonica.

“Awesome!” I cheered, and proceeded to play, “oh, Susannah”‘ the only song I know, but blindly.

Later in the day as I was mindlessly watching t.v. on the computer, I was fiddling with the harmonica and wondered what the inside looked like. I bet you do, too.

Huh. I was not expecting that to be in there.
I thought that note was off. No, I didn't.

The reeds are so little!

Alla part.

Lloyd started to groan about my taking stuff apart, but then he realized that “Oh, Susannah” wasn’t playing, so he got real quiet-like.

Art shot.

How was your Black Friday?

    The big question is: Did you get it back together and it still worked?

    How about a little hearing of Oh Susannah?

    I usually don’t go out on Black Friday, but I did yesterday….a little later in the day too. Then I got on a roll….and got quite a few things.
