    10 - 15 November Winter break in Bermuda.

    September29 Christine and I went to the annual celebration of Robert Mann at The Manhattan School of Music. This year, though, Nicholas Mann (Robert's son) had to make a change to the program; at the last moment, he announced his mother, Lucy Mann, felf herself unable to narrate the text to Robert Mann's "The Emperor and the Nightingale". She has turned 98! Instead, we listened to her in a recording of the same piece made many years earlier. It was just as emotive for the highly sensitive audience! So glad we didn't miss it. October 2 Thanks to my friend Barbara, I saw the revival of Shaw's "Caesar and Cleopatra" at the newly refurbished Theatre Row on 42nd Street and Ninth. Robert Cuccioli played a wonderful Caesar but the direction of the supporting cast left something to be desired--Especially Cleopatra who dashed around the stage like a twelve-year-old losing half her lines in the curtains.

Christine Gets Painted

On Halloween eve, Christine and I went to the NYC Museum to participate in the Family Party fun. I, at least, had been around a year or two longer than all the other party-goers  but we, never-the-less, enjoyed the little ones tirelessly jigging around in their costumes, arms and legs akimbo, while their mums and occasional dad watched with pride.

We arrived early, so, while waiting for the action to start, the face-painting lady started on Christine. The following evening we went back to the museum for the “Members Appreciation Night” (Hors d’oeuvres and Prosecco)–No children present!
