    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.

Update on Ben

Ben had his valve replacement surgery today. The surgery took place at 4 pm and by 7:30 pm he was in the recovery room.  He was still very groggy. The Dr. told us that  the surgery went very well but that since they put the replacement valve in his heart had been relying on a temporary pace maker to get the correct rhythm . This means that tomorrow he will need to have a permanent Pace Maker placed.  The Dr. said that this is not unusual and is not a difficult surgery. He will probably stay in the intensive care unit for the next two days.

I will update everyone tomorrow evening.
