Henry Played His Slide Whistle for YOU!!

videoI went to Henry's yesterday, and after breakfast I told him that my friends wanted to hear him play his slide whistle. I have a few of his songs on my phone, the slide whistle is a text ring tone, and his harmonica is my ringer. ENJOY!!

I also took pictures of some deer in his back yard

  3. Hold up, sister. Henry is 96? Wow, he plays that slide whistle like he's a teenager. Naturally I want to hear him on the harmonica, too.

  4. I've never seen a teenager play the slide whistle, do they play "Like a G6"?
    I'll post his harmonica, it's way better, you can almost tell what song he's playing.

  7. He had to take his top teeth out to play, you can see them just to the left of the plate on the first one. He is really cute, dirty, but cute.

  10. I would love to hear you play it someitme.
    Henry has two, I bought both of them for him, the chorme one is too stiff for his weak little arms to play, so he's stuck with the purple one, but he hates it because it's a toy. He likes to tell me about how he'd play it in the orchestra, it wasn't an aochestra it was a barn band.

  11. Ha! Yeah, mine is nickle. I got it about ten years ago --- because it was something I'd always wanted as a kid!

  12. I love buying stuff I wanted as a kid. I really wanted an inch worm, all the neighbor kids had them, I had one, but it was hard plastic and it didn't inch.

  14. He wouldn't get it. He calls the bus ( intercity transit) the Internet as well as the caller id on his phone. I did record him telling a story I'll put it up in a few days.

  15. Does Henry take requests? I'd love to hear some Robbie Robertson :-)

  16. HA! I'd love to hear some of that too. Finally heard my song on Pandora yesterday right before I went home. The closest you'd get to Robbie is Old Ruggid Cross I'm afraid.

  17. I've never even heard of a slide whistle before, but Henry knows his way around one and that's for sure. He looks really young for his age!

  18. He looks great for his age. His face was burned really bad in his late 50's and it was like a lazer peel, he hardly has a wrinkle.
