    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.

Birthday Lunch in Russell Square

Gillian arranged a meeting  of the Thompson clan in the lobby of the President Hotel in Russell Square where we were staying. Circumstances this year, kept the meeting short and the number of people able to come, much lower than previous years. So, after a drink in the hotel bar, we went to lunch  in an Italian restaurant nearby. The pictures came mainly from various smart-phones.
