Overnight By Bus

  Clarinet

Snowman spent the night riding a bus from Land o'Lakes to Music City, to visit Plain2See, his harpist girlfriend.When I suggested that Snowman might be able to visit her, he expressed surprise that I would let him ride a bus and go there first on his way home from his summer job at Land o'Lakes Art Camp.

Harp"Honey," I pointed out, "you are going to college at the end of the summer. You'll be able to get on a bus and go anywhere you want without asking me."

That he seemed surprised tells me life at boarding school was all I hoped it would be.

He will have three days to visit before flying home Friday afternoon. Her dad is a musician, and I understand they will be making music, even going into the recording studio with him. I expect it will be most beautiful. 

(A prize to the first to figure out her nickname.)

  1. “Plain” makes me think of the prairie, stubble-jumping Saskatchewan-bred woman that I am. Music City… could that be in Tennessee? (Is it flat there?)
    Grasping at straws here. No idea.

  2. Something about a double-strung chromatic?
    Just a guess; I prefer the Flatt and Scruggs style of five-string harp, so I don’t really know much about these.

  3. That is so sweet!
    I googled (cheated) and found the answer. But I won’t give it away so someone else (who might be more familiar with Prince) can win.

  4. As a former library assistant in various reference departments, I believe in research as well as other knowledge. Explain it and you may have the prize! (Especially if you could use some yarn.)
