    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.

Tube Worms on Park Aveue . . .

 . . . . .plus, Folk Art at the South Street Seaport Museum and a fender-bender on Second

These are some pictures I took in my wanderings around the city at the beginning of the month. They do not do justice to the South Street Museum which has been completely renovated and contains many artifacts which give an interesting insight into the sea-going history of our city. Well worth a visit:

Installing street art on Park Avenue

A fine example of the folk art housed in the South Street Musem

. . . . . .another example

I heard the bang, and this is the view I saw from my balcony . . . .

. . . . and this, the view from the sidewalk!

Self portrait

And finally, good riddance to the dismembered monster that has been noisily drilling massive holes in our forecourt!

  2. I especially liked the portrait of you and Ethel. Here we are on our 59th anniversary.

    • John and Claire. Thank you! Your 59th picture was not transmitted unfortunately. You will have to send it by e-mail I’m afraid. Ben and Ethel
