I wasn't always a professional musician. I began as a clerk at the Family Music Center, working for cat food. Every January I had to help count the inventory. Here I'm stalking high notes.
These pictures and captions are for the months of my calendar. Click on each picture to advance to the next month's pictures and to review products and services of Family Music Center where I used to work. (I'm retired now. Now I just go in at night to catch up on my mice.)
Kids! In my story for each month, I hide the name of the month in my story! Except this month, where I made it real easy. Email Music@Saltshaker.US and tell me where it is hidden, and I will send you a FREE PRIZE!!!! (It won't be worth much, but it will be FREE!!!)
