As playing her bass accordion was the base of his life’s highs.
Written for the Saturday Mix of April 3, 2021, the Double Take, from Mindlovemisery’s Menageri. The prompts were err and heir, base and bass. Also used the three prompts from the Three Things Challenge from pensitivity 101: din, minx, trash.
