Grete & her Hohner...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 28 August 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

...Grete is Reinhard's mother; it is her home in which we stayed. She is quite the musician; in fact the whole family was musical. In earlier years they traveled to Australia and other countries performing.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: There was more apple juice/Apfelsaft than beer. ;D

franz from Baden, Austria

i bet that was fun ... traditional music CAN be beautiful and fun, but mostly it's been so diluted and adapted and changed that it makes me sick! i suppose you got to hear the real thing, though ... ;-)
btw, i like her dirndl !!!

@franz: It is a day we will never forget, Franz ... the people, the air, the food and the music ... all of it 'the real thing'. ;D Tomorrow you'll get to see all of us together!

Grete has a happy face. I'm sure is nice to be with her. Lovely portrait.

Jeff from Pembroke Dock, United Kingdom

Keeping up the Von Trapp tradition, great portrait of a face that's been lived in.

@Jeff: Actually, she would not agree with you; she, her husband and sons were real musicians long before 'The Sound of Music'. <grin>

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great capture of Grete as she performs!! I bet she had a great back later in life after building up muscles to carry that accordion around.

@Steven: She probably did; her life was not easy, but she was a trooper!
