Fred

I have Duke Ellington playing. Believe it or not I had befriended an older man who is related to my dad’s girlfriend somewhere along the line, he was suffering terribly from alzheimer’s disease, and I always had to play duke ellington around him because he thought he was back in WW2 sometimes. He told me to keep the music volume soft, or the Nazi Youth might catch us for listening to swing. He was great. He died last week. Fred was a great guy, but he was lost a while ago. This is why I’m listening to Duke Ellington.
