I sure am happy to have survived the holidays. During December, some sort of Christmas flu ravaged our neighborhood. Much to my great sadness, I did not escape the lingering symptoms. But now that the New Year has arrived I feel much less tired and grouchy. Apparently the strain of flu I had turned normally happy people into raving homicidal maniacs. Thank goodness that I am rid of those unwelcome emotions.
Toward the end of last year, I decided to expand my Arizona horizons. To that end, I took on a volunteer job near Benson. I am now part of the “streetmospere” at the Mescal Movie Set. My duties include walking the streets, playing my banjo and looking like an old west lady living in town. My goal is to complement the tours that they offer here. Here I am in all my wild west glory:
When I am not performing as a musical western woman, I still practice as much bluegrass as possible with my friends. Check out the music video to the right that Mona and I made before we were both felled by the cruddy flu.
