    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.

NY Day – 92nd St, “Y” and Tarrytown

The 92nd Steet “Y” held its annual street fair last Sunday. Ethel and I spent a pleasant hour or two watching the entertainment being offered from the stage set up in front of the building. The arts departments each had an opportunity to show off the great variety of their students’ accomplishments and advertise their classes.

               We drove up to Tarrytown last week to see how Kelsey was progresssing and I was struck again by the changes that have been made to the Hudson villages since I left the area for the city 20 odd years ago. They have discarded most of the riverside manufacturing plants and building yards which sustained their prosperity in the past and now have become wealthy,  genteel, but charming, dormitory towns. Tarrytown, no less. Specialist tea shops and sidewalk cafes abound.

Passing the time before lunch, here is Susan, Craig and Ethel and Susan's dogs outside one of the coffee shops.
