Blue Notes

My mom told a great story this evening that I don’t think I’ve ever heard before. When she was in high school, she and 2 of her friends sang as a trio and called themselves the “Blue Notes”. At one point they connected with a band led by “America’s Polka King” Frank Yankovic and made a record. Later, my mom, her friends, and my dad’s parents went on a little getaway. My dad’s father owned the record and brought it with him. He knew the owner of a certain restaurant. He gave the record to the owner who put it in the jukebox and fixed it so that whenever anyone put a coin in the jukebox, it would play the “Blue Notes”. It was quite a surprise to my mom and her friends. The details of the story were amazing. My parents still own one of the records. When my dad sets up the new turntable he got for Christmas, we will take a listen.

I Found God today in my mom’s great story from her past.
