New Car! 12-26-2012

I rarely post anything on this blog, other than harp related events. However, the day after Christmas, Santa  decided that I needed a new 2013  Ford Flex!  I bought it at Fritts Ford and was treated like royalty. The car is by far the most elegant harp wagon on the road today!
I love the color, the handling and the style. People ask me every single day about it. Merry Christmas to me!

St Michael and All Angels Church- Corona del Mar 12-24-2012

St Michael and All Angels Church in  Corona del Mar, called me at practically the last minute, for this magical Christmas Eve Service. Their harpist suddenly  was unable to make it to the service and the music director was frantic to find a replacement. This turned out to be a wonderful musical program, filled with the traditional type music that I grew up with and love.  I was thrilled to be a part of the mystical, enchanting service.
