LeBron James plays harmonica not as good as you.


Lanny and Deb had a gecko sneak into their house and hide behind the printer. When Deb plays harmonica the gecko comes out to listen. She’s the pied piper of harmonica. If being a musician doesn’t work out, she could go into the lizard wrangling business.
