I Learned From the Best

I was paid a great compliment by my daughter the other day, although I don't think she intended it to be taken that way. She was working on reading music as part of her violin practice, and I was trying to help her find the notes and keep the rhythm by playing the melody out on the piano. She played something that sounded really wonky and apparently I made some sort of a face when she did it. Her response to my reaction was to say, 'You look just like Papa Clark does when I make a mistake.'

Well, I told her, I learned from the best. Because not only is Papa Clark her piano teacher, but he's my dad and was my piano teacher as well. I remember the faces he would make when I got a note wrong and evidently I have made those same facial expressions a part of my repertoire. Like father, like son. Sorry girls, I'll probably always make funny faces when the notes are a little (or a lot) out of tune.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. Hopefully, you'll be treated well by your family and enjoy a relaxing Sunday to cap off your weekend.

If you need something for your dad this week, why not a gift for his garden. You could even do something for him in the garden like weed a flowerbed, plant some shrubs, or trim those bushes he hasn't gotten to. Or better yet, bring him out to Kerby's to spend an afternoon together among fruit trees and flowers.

Happy Gardening,

The Kerby's Nursery Family
