    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

  1. Just back from a GCT trip to the Canadian Maritimes. Enjoyed it very much. Had been there on a camping trip with our young family in 1966 and much had changed, but not the beauty of the sites re-visited.

    Claire and I are pleased that we can still stay in touch with you and Ethel. In August we are off to Russia on a GCT river cruise.

  2. John and Claire. Great to have you back. Ben and Ethel
