Moving to the suburbs was an experience and although there were some tough moments, there were that many more good memories of growing up in Levittown. One of them was discovering the Levittown Drum and Bugle Corps which met just a couple of blocks away at the local church. It was one of first experiments with playing music, but from there, my sister and I both went on to other instruments. My sister was an amazing violin and viola player while I took up the bassoon. Being involved in music groups provided us both with amazing opportunities.
This photo is of us with our parents as we proudly display the bugles we were learning to play!
If I’m a little hard of hearing at times, blame all those Jonas Brothers concerts I went to with my darling daughter! Not that I didn’t like them, because I did. I’m just convinced that if the military could somehow package the screams of teenaged girls, they would have the most effective weapons known to mankind.
But besides enjoying the Jonas Brothers, I had the good fortune that we saw them when they were the backup band to Aly & AJ. I liked their music so much, my daughter got one of their albums for my Ipod. It’s perfect music for my workouts and I thought I’d share one of my favorites (video with all those cute surfer dudes makes it possibly better!).
