Show and Tell Friday -Instruments I have played

I don't remember this, but here is a picture of me playing (or playing at)the harmonica when I was a little girl in China.
When I was in grade school, I took piano lessons and still enjoy playing the piano.
In high school, I played the String Bass in the orchestra. I didn't play it after that, because I didn't own one.
When my hubby and I were dating, he brought over his mom's ukelele and I decided to get one also. We still have them - and I enjoy playing the uke when we go camping - it's good for campfire singing.
Do you blogging friends play any instruments???

I played the flute in school, and the piccolo one year in college, for marching band. Fun memories!

The piano is the only instrument I play and that only barely.

Ruthie,
That picture of you playing the harmonica is one of the cutest I've ever seen!
I play the piano (but not well!)
Enjoy your weekend!

I used to play the flute but haven't had one in twenty years. I also briefly played the guitar, bassoon, and the tuba. I like the flute best.

What a sweet picture of you playing the harmonica, Ruthie! I play the piano, but haven't practiced in a few months. Thank you for the reminder to get busy!

That's wonderful! Unfortunately I don't play any instrument. I took one semester of piano in college and loved it, but my schedule was already so full it took me an extra year to graduate as it was. I admire musical talent in people.

I can play a kazoo :) not much else! How precious is the picture of you playing the harmonica! my goodness :) You are very talented to be able to play so many instruments!

Very talented! Thank you for sharing ~ and yes, I play the piano. One of my daughters is starting to show interest, so we'll see if any of the 3 decide to follow in mom's footsteps.

Momstheword said...

No, I don't play an instrument unless you count a kazoo. I took piano lessons when I was a kid and could probably pick it up again but don't know if I want to exert that much energy :)

You're very talented.

I play the piano, but don't practice enough.

I love the picture of you and how talented you are. I took piano lessons and learned to play some for my own pleasure but sold it when we moved from the farm. I bought a sewing machine with the money which has never worked properly for long. It is a real lemon. Guess I should have kept the piano. I never learned to read music though.

I took piano when I was a girl, but I did not enjoy it. I wish I played now! I love that picture of you when you're playing the harmonica! It is so precious!

I tagged you for a fun, easy meme, I hope you'll play!

What a precious picture. I hope you have it framed somewhere in your house. It's so sweet.

I don't play anything but the radio. I did take piano lessons when I was a child, but it didn't take. I also like your little pictue...you look like Shirley
Temple with that hair. :)
