Two weeks ago I bought tickets for a concert at the Old Town School of Music where Seth is taking guitar lessons.
Seth seems partial to bluegrass music; who am I to argue? The plan was to see Andy Statman and the warm-up band called The Golden Prairie All Stars, which featured mandolin player Don Stiernberg .
Unfortunately, Sunday night did not go as planned. Late in the afternoon, and out of no where, Seth developed a nasty fever. Seth kept asking, “But can I go anyway?”
I told my boy we’d wait and see, perhaps the fever would pass quickly. A few minutes later, my wife Anne reported that Seth was sleeping in our bed. It was obvious he would sleep straight into the night.
What to do? I called some friends up and offered them tickets. None could change their plans on such short notice.
