The lady’s name is Juanita. Juanita loves what she’s doing. She may not be very good, but she enjoys playing. She’s practicing. She’s taking her practicing seriously. She looks like she is concentrating.
She’s practicing in the park. She’s outside. She has feathers on her shoulder and a strange possession setting beside her.
Dwight thinks the possession is a pet squirrel. He had a friend with a pet squirrel. It got tame and they enjoyed him.
She’s kind of dressed up. Maybe she’s playing for money in the park.
What kind of song is Juanita playing? Is it a love song for her lover?
She’s not trying to get a suntan. She’s partially in the shade. It’s Fall and she is surrounded by leaves.
She can play the guitar but she sings, too. She’s singing softly. She is very calm. She’s singing the song, “Autumn Leaves”.
Tina plays the clarinet. Charles played the drums. Mary Lou left the instruments to her family. One daughter plays the cello and one plays the piano. They’ve played for us.
Dwight does not play an instrument. He tried, but didn’t learn how. He tried to play the guitar and the banjo, but he had other fish to fry.
Dwight’s father had a mandolin. He could really play it. He could almost make it talk. He played it for seventy-five years. Dwight’s family just got together and made music. They played loud. No sleeping when THEY played! They just played for their own enjoyment: family and friends.
Juanita is just playing for fun. It’s a hobby. She has a pretty guitar. It almost looks like it has a mural on it. It might have been in her family for a while. It looks faded. It is old. It was handed down to her. It might be worth a lot of money.
This makes Evelyn think of her older sister. She’d go up on the springhouse and play and play. She’d play off where no one could hear her. She was the musical one in the family. Sometimes Evelyn would slip off and listen to her play.
Juanita’s guitar is very fancy. It has a fashionable lady on each side of it. Her grandmother gave it to her. She wasn’t a famous guitar player. She was a famous grandmother who loved her granddaughte
