I was going into Wal-Mart the other day with my wife and we noticed a Salvation Army Bell ringer singing Christmas carols.  When we came out an hour later he was still singing.  We went over to put in some money and visit with him for a moment.  He said that He will sing Christmas carols the whole time that he is out there, sometimes for 12 hours in a day.  I pulled out my Poly  C and accompanied him on "The first Noel".  We drew a nice little crowd who donated.  It was a lot of fun and brightened several peoples day including mine .

I have been telling myself I am going to do that with my Harmonica for many years, but I still haven't done it.   Maybe one of theses years.

You are doing great!   I really liked the 4 songs that you posted with the scenery pictures.

My dad has been wanting me to go to a festival with him and play christmas songs on my mouintain ocarina. I guess he thinks I'm good enough to play in public. Smiley

Btw, these ocarinas really carry thier sound a long ways. My mom said she could hear me playing it when I was in a brick house and she was about half a mile from our house. Shocked

I play in my truck with the windows up and wake people up around me in other trucks, with their windows up and their engines on. I was playing in the foyer at the back of our main terminal. They could hear me playing around 3 corners and two closed doors down in the safety dept. They thought it was a native american flute though. They looked puzzled when they saw the little black plastic box all that noise was coming out of.
