    Here is what hubby does for his fun!

    Guess he can't complain about my 2 good sewing machines. He's playing right now- from polkas to Irish melodies to something I remember singing to my oldest from a show (Here we come a wandering, along the leaves so green.... valderee, valderah, along the something we go.......maybe?)

    I told him we could make it our Christmas card. (j/k!)

    I must say I like to hear him, he's really getting quite good. I keep telling him he'll be a hit at the nursing home when we get there.

    You know what's funny- I CAN'T POLKA! I'm musically declined! Actually I really want to learn before the 2 family weddings next year.

    P.S. I just realized the album is right here by me- it's called the Happy Wanderer. Brings back memories.

    WOW! That's cool. I haven't heard polka since I was a child at a lutheran church picnic when we lived in St Louis.

    Lol, my mother used to play the accordian, but she only has ONE. That's one heck of a collection! I thought I was weird with my guitars lining my hallway.

    Hey, the accordian is the first instrument I learned to play! Tell your hubby he has a nice collection. Too bad I can't listen to him play, the accordian still holds its own in my heart.

    You don't need to learn to polka if you learn to play :wink:

    Great pictures. Thanks for sharing your story. Growing up in Southern Mn. we had lots of polka bands and polka festivals.
