    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.

Kim in New York

Kim arrived on Sunday 24th August and returned on September 5th. She  brought Rebecca (my granddaughter) with her, Rebecca’s boyfriend, Josh, and her friend Sue. Since Sue  and Josh had not visited New York before, Kim spent most of the two weeks showing them the wonders of the City. AND SHOPPING!

I did drive them out to Cold Springs one day via Bear Mountain and Christine drove them to Atlantic City for an overnight stay.

One of the bonuses of the visit is that I got my pictures hung and dusted and my light bulbs changed for free!

Click on the pictures for detail:
