Moments that last

My Dad learned to play the accordion when he was a kid. At the insistence from some of the grandchildren yesterday, he pulled his accordions out and played a bit. He tried to teach some of us a simple song to play. It is harder than it looks! You have to play different things with each hand all the while pumping it full of air. That takes some talent! You have to be able to walk and chew gum...or pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time. Two of my brothers were trying to collaborate so they could play. It didn't work out so well...but we had some good laughs! My 14 year old son was able to keep time and learn the song. At one point, three of us were trying to play at one time.
We seem to get together less and less as we all age. I cherish these times and memories.
