Description
This is a little piece dedicated to the sweetest most amazing person in my life, my grand daughter Audrey. She has been a gift from God since she first arrived on the scene. I always tell her she is good enough to eat. At Thanksgiving I told her she was Grampy's Special Turkey. "There's good eatin' on them bones, jes jump in the pot and we'll cook you up good." So Audrey and Grandma decided to play a little trick on Grampy. They put her in the Fryin' pot and said "Grampy come and look at the special turkey we got you for Thanksgiving." Well we just had to get a picture of that. I had written this a while ago and just got GPO and had to try the Steinway piano. Then I added a French horn. Hope you enjoy it.

tasty tribute
A sweet young girl, and a wonderful grandfather to put together something so unique and brilliant as this. You never cease to surprise, with operatic singing to a sweet piano & french horn(!?) ballad... this is gorgeous, as is the young lady you dedicated this to.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Yet another side to your
talent! This is very nicely done. The melody is sweet, but not overly sentimental, and the playing is superb. Lovely sound too. Your grand-daughter is lucky to have you as her grandpa. Very cool. Nicely done, my friend. Peace.

This starts off terrific
and keeps going on the same path.What a great name Audrey. That is my mothers name and she died in years ago,.

Glad to a bright eyed,cheery person with that name. Sure seems like she is really something special!

Thanks for sharing this delightful tune.

Ahhh... Stephen...
What a gorgeous piece of music this is! Happy and delightful, just like Audrey! You create such elegant music, yet it is uncluttered. I'm trying to learn how to do that. Very nice combo of piano and horn.

I am so grateful
All the musicians here are the ones inspiring me. Every time I turn around I am discovering new artists and re-discovering music styles. I can't listen to a piece and not be inspired to try that style. That is what is great about this community. I have said it before but I haven't seen this much different music and musicians supporting each other since the 60's. Its truly special.
Thanks all for your inspiration,
Stephen

Piano . . . sigh!
Its not my first instrument. Only a late life pickup, but I do love it. I will hopefully get better over time and be able to develop a left hand (so easy on guitar, I just don't understand). Thanks for your kind comments.

Thanks. I am just beginning my journey on the keyboards (played a little accordian as a child). I got this late one night and dedicated it to little Audrey.

Loved this
The relationship we have with our little ones be they sons, daughters, nieces, nephes, grandsons or granddaughters is one of the most special parts of life.

We adopted our son Ryan. Before he came into our lives I didn't think fatherhood would ever be for me. But now I can't see how I ever got along without it!

Excellent tune!

How beautiful!
Between looking your adorable granddaughter and her beguiling expression and listening to this very moving piece, I actually had a little tear in my eye (I'm prone to being a bit maudlin Stephen--bear with!) Exceptional work and I'm giving this a standing O! Thanks again, Michael

Sweet song
for a little girl. Enjoyed listening. Was thinking that the "theme" could maybe GO somewhere harmonically beyond the two chords you are repeating so often. That would probably force you into some new melodic ideas to explore. Just a thought. But I enjoyed the number, nevertheless.
