Today, September 1, 2012, is Theme Day across the CDPB (citydailyphotoblog) community. People watching and music are specialties of mine. Separately, they are intriguing. Put them together and the results from the stage or from the audience can be simply amazing. On a recent trip to San Antonio, we sat foot-tapping for a couple of hours to this Tex-Mex band. They were a crowd pleaser! There's just something about an accordion in a tejano band, or zydeco rhythms emanating from Louisiana that can get me up and movin'. My brother and sisters will probably point to Uncle Howard, my grandmother's brother. On his yearly sojourns from PEI, where the roots of zydeco music run deep, he'd bring his fiddle and squeezebox, and after dinner the chairs were pushed away and within minutes he'd have the grownups and us kids just dancing and a tappin' across that linoleum floor. That combination of smiles, laughter and French singing was something to witness. Thank you Uncle Howard!
