12th Street Rag - Interlude

Tuesday evening, the night before her partial knee replacement surgery, my Mum, who is 81, was in a talent show put on at her residence, which happens to be a place where many older folks reside.

Mum played the 12th Street Rag, and performed, as usual, a bang up job at the piano.

Here’s Happi Moore playing the 12th Street Rag (1:08), who, when this video was posted in 2007, was 88.  My Mum would’ve liked Happi Moore I rather think.  Enjoy.

  2. RKN, those are some dexterous fingers, especially when you consider that Happi’s hands look to be rather affected by arthritis.  I don’t know about the texting, though, especially when I consider a few of my Mum’s texts and emails.
