    This video is dedicated to my biggest musical influence Aunt Penny.

I've been around a long time, and you know, when you've been around a long time, you see people who are older , and they've survived this very complicated life that we've all been given, to figure out what are we to do with it? We have these children, we have this home, we have this relationship, we have all this stuff, it comes and goes like waves . Sometimes its okay, sometimes its horrible , and that will never change. how you react to it, is what makes the difference . Let's not all get hysterical when the dog won't stop barking. We all have to take turns barking. We all need to bark, and this happens to be the day that your dog is barking. Something is bugging him and he's barking, and until we figure out what it is, he's going to bark . We all need to do that. Don't be afraid to bark. It's good to bark. It's good for your soul. Then we have to sit back, take a deep breath, drink plenty of water , and not get too upset with the every day stuff , because it can make you sick if you let it . Go with the tide, ride with the tide, go with the flow Thank you Aunt Penny.

Aunt Penny seems like a cool hip woman. May she Rest In Peace. My aunt Dawn was the same way we were close and she was a musical influence to me. She played piano and she plays the harp. She was an amazing woman as was your aunt Penny. Keep your head up she seems like she live a full life and a beautiful one my brother.

Well, Rick, this was a dellightful, though with a sad ending. You have my condolences. I went 8 years in grade school with nuns as teachers of the order "Sisters of Mercy" and wat she was wearing looked very much like what they wore. I was born just pier to the outbreak of WWII and had just had my 7th birthday about a month before the surrender of the Japanese. You have a charming personality and wealth of knowledge -- but are a bit "over my head" on some things.

A couple of days ago I woke up with "Just the Way You Are" stuck in my head. It's always been one of the songs that I enjoyed from Billy Joel, but was never one of my favorites. I listened to it to see if I could get it out of my head, but in doing so I realized just how much this song resonates with me, especially considering how this last year has gone, in regards to the relationship my wife and I have. Hearing its chords coming from someone you clearly love, who loved you just the way you are (talking too much and everything else), brought me to tears. I only discovered your channel a few weeks ago, but it feels like I know you, or someone like you, and it's been wonderful to have the knowledge and love that you have for music, and life in general, in my life. Thank you, Rick and Aunt Penny.

I envy that you had such a musical family. My mother has zero musical interest My father just listens to what he did as a youth and nothing else My sister played the flute in marching in High School and dropped it immediately after graduation. My other sister just listens to what everyone else listening too currently on the radio (trendy) I listen to various genres and time periods and play bass, guitar and have interests to learn piano and cello.

Reminded me of so much, especially the love I had for my uncles, aunts and grandparents on one side of the family. I've lost all my uncles now and one aunt on that side. The next oldest is 87 and probably nearing the end. On a brighter note four decades ago, we bought a pub in a tiny town in the tropics. Ma (76 now) used to open the plastic 20' long fold back doors to the dinning room and played a few songs on the piano of a Friday night. She was a big fan of Richard Clayderman and Winifred Atwell. Not long afterwards, we had someone playing the spoons or mouth organ (lol), then a double bass, guitar players, accordion and many others joining in, even a bloke with a massive drum kit. Ma was able to step back when a brilliant pianist joined... good times. All brilliant players. I only learned after my grandfather died, on the other side of the family, that he could play just about any instrument, plus could beat anyone with an axe... so sad, such a quiet man. His brother played championship tennis matches in this state, but granddad was always better than he was, lol. Life is sometimes too short, or sometimes too long for some of us. Appreciate it for what it is while we have it. It's hard losing those we love dearly, I know the pain well.

Man I knew I was going to cry after I saw you two sitting together talking. She was a very wise woman. There are some words to live by in there. So sorry for youe loss Rick. FYI - for the folks who didn't get the stamps for food part, they rationed almost everything in WWII to support the war effort. My grandmother told me so many stories about that time and when I get down about what's going on in the world now I think about what it must have been like for people back in those years.
