It was a rainy night at a home in River Oaks where I was called to play for a wedding. The streets were getting flooded as I waited for the time to play. Ron, who booked me for the gig came out to me, and invited me in the house to get out of the rain. I took him up on the offer and made my way into the house. There was quite a bit going on in the house to get ready for the wedding. I made my way outside to get ready to play.
After playing for the wedding I was invited to stay for the reception to have dinner. I sat with the family and had wonderful conversations with the bride and groom. I stayed for a several hours then made my way home.
I received a card that I want to share...
The card reads:
Thank you for making our wedding amazing. You are a fantastic bagpiper. You also make a fantastic guest. You are so interesting and fun to talk to. We wish you a successful future!
Christina and Ron
It's nice to feel like you are part of the family even though you were hired to perform a service!
