My piano buddy

I recently decided to practice piano more regularly. I took lessons for nine years as a kid, but life gets crazy, and practice would fall to the bottom of the to-do list. I missed playing, so I got out a book of sonatinas and started playing.

Tucker was creeping closer and closer, so I pulled up a chair. To my delight, he jumped up. I love how happy he looks here.

Now, he'll look for the chair anytime I sit on the piano bench. He's a great partner and a good listener.

In other news, Jim saw Bella again on Sunday night. He talked to her from a distance, and she again walked down our driveway. :-)

Having Tucker sit and admire you should encourage you to practice!

You make a good piano critic, Tucker.

Such a lovely audience!

Somehow, I fear my girls would not be as appreciative if I braved trying my clarinet after all these years. :-)

Kitties respond so well to pleasing music. I have a playlist of piano pieces that I play at bedtime and the kitties come snuggle.

That is so sweet that Tucker likes your music!! I was a clarinet player for a long time, but my cats would always run when I got the instrument out. Scarlett and Melly are anti-music, I think: Melly squawks at me if I so much as hum.
