    June 13 Picnicked on The Great lawn in central Park to the music of The New York Philharmonic led by James Gaffigan. Great program with spectacular fireworks after the concert. The concert included two pieces composed by students from its education program — remarkable works (Bernstein style) from composers  11 and 12 years old respectively! They took their bows from the stage!

    June 20 The forecast rain didn’t happen so, having lined up for senior tickets in the morning, we were able to see an uninterrupted ‘Othello” in Central Park last night. The set and costumes were magnificent and the actors did their best but the direction gave  a somewhat bland production. I personally thought that some players were miscast and this distracted from the illusion.

Seattle and Portland – part three

After our lunch at the Chihuly “Collections” cafe, Bonnie and Kirstyn took us on the monorail to the fish markets in downtown Seattle. We hoped to get pictures of the fish-throwing activities there (After a customer selects a fish, the fishmonger throws it Quarterback style to the fillet people at the back). There was not enough light, though, to catch the action.

Finally, Nancy invited me to visit the Printing Office where she works. I had a wonderfully nostalgic time among familiar machines of my youth and, also, was amazed at the light-years of progress made in some of the operations I remembered.

On the last morning, Bonnie drove us to the Tacoma Amtrak station and saw us off to Portland!














Many of the collected pieces were shown under the glass of the tables where we ate
