After playing the traditional St Nicholas (Sinterklaas) songs for the residents of the retirement village, where my father stayed, in the morning, my daughter, son and I visited my father there, in the evening.
For some reason, he had not attended the visit of Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet (St Nicholas and ‘Black Pete’ ) in the village recreation hall, in the morning.
So I brought back my accordion, and played some more of those songs, just for him and his grandchildren.
Definition of a gentleman: One who can play the accordion, but doesn’t !
( My father passed away, September, 2009. )
