    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.

Cape Vincent Ferry

My friend David had worked out a route to Canada we had never taken before in our 30 years of travelling to Cochrane–we crossed the border by means of the Cape Vincent/Kingston Ferry. We stayed overnight in Cape Vincent, then early next morning we were first in line for the small ferry which took us to Wolfe Island. We motored across Wolfe Island (Lake Ontario) and joined the line for the main Ferry to Kingston. The line was horrendous and we first thought that we would have to wait half the day, but not to worry, the ferry could take 50 cars and trucks and we were the 48th!
