You play a lot of instruments - I am impressed! My mom always tried to get me to play the piano, but instead of practicing I would play a tape of someone else practicing, and I would play games....I was never good at that!! (Or homework, or exercising, or cleaning...)

Yes, I do play a lot of different instruments. However, I would be pretty rusty on a couple of them. I do play well enough to play in public, and have played in church several times. I wish I made more time to practice, particularly the piano. I love playing piano.
All this makes me think I'll ask a trivia question in my next post regarding the instruments I play.

I would love to try out the chili and cornbread. You seem to have had a lot of x rays, accident prone?

Well, you'll just have to drop by sometime, and I'll make a crockpot full of chili and a skillet of cornbread.

Does it seem like a lot of x rays? Let's see, teeth are just the standard every so often at the dentist. Stomach when I was a teen and having pains that they diagnosed as an ulcer. Hand when a boyfriend and I were goofing around, and he accidently kicked me. Knee when I tripped over a curb. Ankle when my heel caught in the crack of a sidewalk. I don't know that doesn't seem like so many in almost half a century. Does it?
