I sure loved fencing for about 15 years (up to this year, 1992.) But I was a lot younger then. Before that,
when I was six, my mother (who never played an instrument) carried my accordion on the city bus into Mpls. with my 4 year old sister and 2 year old brother. After my lesson, we all had chocolate milk shakes at the Woolsworth. Much later, my Dad commented that they never guessed it would lead to so much music throughout my life.
