Some Things Take Time

My 82 year old father-in-law,

Bob at Ocean Shores

once-upon-a-time owner of an accordion,

player of bagpipes,

lover of big romantic Russian symphonic melodies,

including Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade and Tchaikovsky,


in front of several people,

that he actually NOW likes the Beatles!

It’s 2011, but never mind!  Hey, it’s cool.  Some things take time.
