  1. What a story, Balfour! I can so picture this in my mind. This has to be the most unusual place you’ve ever played you harp, but it also sounds like a great place to take a “harp photo”. Hugs from TN!

    Thanks, Jackie! I do wish we had a photo of the harp in that nice men’s room. If only we had owned a cell phone then! Harp Hugs to you and everyone, too!
