Judi & Chris Wahl
Yesterday was quite the festive day at my volunteer gig with the elderly. We were entertained by a sensational drum circle group, Wahlbangers Drum Circle Organization. The group consists of its founders, Chris Wahl and his lovely wife, Judi. And for extra support, there's his mom, Donna, his sister, Steff, and her hubby, Fritz. The lot of them provides music therapy for the elderly and others. We assembled Chris & Co. on the floor with our memory impaired residents. After the staff and I got the residents seated behind a set of drums, we took our places, too. I'm tellin' you, I beat on those drums as if I was Travis Barker. Chris told me that I made his day with my participation. Many of our residents played along as long as they could, but when they were pooped, I kept going. I almost forgot the exercise was for THEIR therapy. Not mine! Haaa! Anyway, Chris & Co. are due back on Dec. 2nd, so I'm gonna have to practice what beats I want to perform by grabbing some chopsticks and banging away on my wooden, tv dinner stand! Hey, the wise man knows that practice makes perfect!
Wahlbangers Drum Circle Organization is a not-for-profit endeavor, so they'll happily accept donations. You can do that HERE!

I wanna bang on the drum all day."
