    I grew up in a house full of singers. My dad was always singing. My brother had a great voice and I always loved to harmonize... Some of my fondest family memories are centered around music. These old photos people are posting are definitely making me more and more sentimental! Thanks for sharing!

    That is same as my husband says he sings all the time but says the Lord likes it and he is off key :-) My first husband that passed away was a singer and my Mom no other singers in family . I have 5 kids and not one sings or plays any instrument :-(

    Thanks Jim . He really liked it and a jam session every week kept our feet happy with the rhythm . I sure miss him so thanks for stopping to give a nice comment ! :-)

    It reminds me of my Dad. He taught me all the stringed instruments. He and i would sit on the back porch and serenade the birds, squirrels and deer(our only neighbors). Thanks so much for sharing that with us, me especially! Jimbo
