We had a baby grand piano in our house while I was growing up. Judy used to play Christmas songs during the holidays and I would sing while she played. I really enjoyed that special time making music with her.
When I first moved into my house Judy agreed that all of the plants in the backyard were quite boring, so she set about rearranging the landscaping to make it more appealing and beautiful. The plants she pulled up from my yard, she took to her farm; never anything wasted.
