Drumroll, Please


"Opportunity is a parade. Even as one chance passes, the next is a fife and drum echoing in the distance.""
Robert Brault

"The noisiest drum has nothing in it but air"
English Proverb


Here are pictures of Anne Marie and Ella of about two years ago, when my friend gave me her set of electric drums.  Neither Phil nor I play, but I knew the girls would love them, and they are lightweight and easy to move around. Why are they playing today? To introduce the award I just got from from Cheryl at The Farmer's Daughter. Chreryl takes wonderful pictures of barns, nature, and things that get your emotions going, thank you Cheryl! The rules of this award are:
1. Be a follower of this blog
2. Pass it on to three other people
3. Link back to me. 


So here are my three choices for the award:
1.Monica at Dawn Treader's Picture Book - She snaps wonderful things in Sweden, like you have never seen before!

2.Sandie at Chatty Crone - She will always give you a big laugh and is a friend to everyone.

3.Ann at Snap Edit Scrap - because she has an adorable little dog and tells life like it is, and also makes divine crafts.

I tried to chose followers who I think might accept this award, but if you do not like doing this kind of thing, feel free to pass and you won't hurt my feelings, promise!


Jesus said, "Come to think of it, you are going to drink my cup. But as to awarding places of honor, that's not my business. My Father is taking care of that."  Matthew 20:23

Hi Ginny, Wow is your granddaughter lucky to have the occasional use of your electronic drums. When I was her age, I had to sneak mom's pots and pans out of the kitchen cabinets and hope I did not get in too much trouble for my musical experimentation! Ha! Have a wonderful day today!

That drum set reminded me of my grandson, Landon. He started playing the drums at a young age ---and then he took lessons. NOW--since he is in high school, he is an excellent drummer. I'm so proud of him.
Hugs,
Betsy
