Best Shot Monday: Chopsticks

(step)Grandma: Do you want to come and play the piano with me?

Small Boy: I can't play the piano......

Grandma: I'll teach you something...

Small Boy: But I caaaaaan't.....

Grandma: Can you count to six?

Small Boy: Yes...

Grandma: Then you can play 'Chopsticks'. Come on. I'll show you.

Small Boy: (unsure).....Weeeeell ......And here he is playing it. I just love that secretly pleased smile! When his Mum came to pick him up the next day he insisted that she come upstairs and listen to him play 'Chopsticks'!!
"When will Grandma be back?" he wanted to know. "When will I get to see her again?"

Not soon enough as far as I am concerned mate.

Great phot and a great lesson. I was trying to remember chopsticks so I could show my nephew a few weeks back but couldn't remember how it worked. Oh well.

Slowly getting adjusted here.
