“I just started piano lessons with my teacher. I always wanted to learn piano. I also had an interview with the Angola Theater. I would have a job cleaning up there. I’m going to the Carrie Underwood concert in May. I asked my staff if she would go, so we’re having dinner first and then going to the concert! I spoke up for myself to do these things. I have a new reading goal that I like, too." – Bob Edwards, Oak Street
