Bob, my flower-ing volunteer – announced our visits with harmonica tunes!

It was Bob’s idea last August.

Trisha, I wonder if I can help you with the flower deliveries. (He was 90 years old!)

On our first foray out to deliver the flowers, he had a thought.

Trisha, I used to play the harmonica. What do you think of this idea? I could get it out and start practicing some patriotic tunes. Then, as we carry the flowers into the nursing home, I can “announce” the visit by playing Yankee Doodle Dandy, God Bless America, America the Beautiful, Battle Hymn of the Republic, God Bless America, Halls of Montezuma, The Stars and Stripes Forever and The Star-Spangled Banner. I am a little rusty on those songs but if I practice, I should be able to do that within a few weeks. I might need to buy another harmonica because this one does not seem to be quite right.
