    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.

Bounce Lake 3

Each day brings an expectant dawn. There are no news bulletins to hear so the look of the sky is all important to us–whether to stay in and read or prepare to fish. Whether to contemplate a shower or wait for a warmer day . . . . .

 Now for the fishing . . . Or what there was of it this year. We spent many hours motoring up and down the lake with only one edible fish to count for the effort. And Susan caught it!
