FFfAW Challenge-Week of March 28, 2017

I don’t think I’ve joined in with this challenge before, but the photoprompt took me back a bit so I thought I’d have a go.

It was very much a family affair with Alfred at the piano and Grace turning the sheeted music for him.
Gladys stood in what she hoped was a relaxed and confident pose as she began her first solo performance.
All went exceptionally well, no warbled notes or wrong chords, and at the end Gladys breathed a sigh of relief.
Her audience snorted and resumed sniffing their hind quarters.
Their afghan hound was such a lousy critic, but tomorrow it would be for real.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
