Thank you for all the good wishes! I had a lovely time with visiting family. We shopped at a very large music store, and the book I got is "Hand Drums for Beginners" so that I can learn some new stuff to try on my tall conga drum! And the highlight of the weekend was a tour of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC. So very beautiful!


I especially love the 1599 portrait of William Cecil, Lord Burghley's, two grandchildren. The present Biltmore Estate owner is a direct descendent of that fascinating and clever Tudor politician.
