If I called my mom half as often as I think about calling her...
I would too. I called my mom last night at the end of a busy day. We chit-chatted and then ended up searching for Jazz Greats on YouTube. She was on her computer in Colorado. I was on mine in Arizona.
We found Duke Ellington's Satin Doll. Mom was surprised that this recording has had 1,139,617 views. And then, just like anyone else on the web, she moved from one thing to another, Oscar Peterson's Satin Doll, Ella Fitzgerald and then she stumbled on a Lady Gaga song. Yeah, made no sense to me either.
So, we listened to music. There is a lot of classic jazz on YouTube. Mom shared some of what she knows. I shared some of my tricks. We planned a visit. It was a Perfect Friday evening. .. Robin, Tempe
