    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.

Dennis’s Diversity

We haven’t heard much of Dennis’s artwork for some time. The reason is now clear– he sent me two discs  showing how very busy he has been. In addition to his love of Lawn Bowling, he has won prizes in a surprising number of fields, here are some of his prizewinners:

Congratulations , Dennis. A wonderful assortment of skills!  (p.s Dennis and I are related through Maureen (Penny), his wife, who is the daughter of my aunt Lucy, one of the Thompson girls.
