This is the sum of my life...

Dad and I dueting...

Believe it or not, the internet holds all sorts of forgotten treasures. I found this picture of my dad and I rocking out on the accordion buried in my facebook photos.

When we duet it drives my whole family crazy so they always kick us out onto the back patio. In the summer we take sheer delight in oom-pa-pa-ing loud enough to honor our great legions of polish accordion playing ancestors.

Much to the chagrine of my husband, and delight of my mom, my dad sent his mandolin home with me so I've been working on that recently, too. Believe me, I'm pretty terrible but I'm taking lessons starting next week so hopefully I'll get better.


  1. What a sweet picture, I'm so glad I've found another accordion player in the blogosphere!!

  3. Aw, what a great father-daughter bonding moment!!! My grandpa played the accordion -- I have such a soft spot for the instrument.
