    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. Beautiful photos

  2. Ben,

    Pictures with captions gave me chuckles. Cute and funny.


  3. Love the parade pics, Ben. I wish I could have joined you, but even if I were closer, there is no way I would have lasted that long on a narrow wall! Your stamina is truly impressive! It was wonderful to talk to you on New Year’s Day, especially hearing you describe your parade adventure while I had those very balloons paused on my TV. Love to you and Ethel. Bonnie
