Friday evening: It's good to be early for a movie showing, just to be sure you get good seats. The Yard Man and I agree on this, but never feel quite the same degree of compulsion to arrive early (and then, too, the definition of "early" can vary). Since I had bought the six tickets for The Yard Man and myself and four of our friends to attend the Friday night movie, I wanted to make sure that "early" was, in fact, early!.
Aha. (We arrived to the option of absolutely any and every seat in the theater as a seat for our party!) Reader Dear, (I have to tell you), I laughed loudly with delight!
Ice cream with toppings, topped by a super-charming evening of jazz!*
Listener Dear, I'll share the music. You know (please say you do) that I would also make you a Taster Dear if ice cream could be shared across the miraculous internet waves!
Sunday lunch under a lovely sky, beside a fountain.
Plus our regular Sunday-evening concert at the park: this clip featuring First Son-in-law, Small Actor, Tiny Actor and...
The Steel Wheels!**
Reader Dear, if not for the very sad news of hatred's triumph over love**, the weekend would have been a multi-colored rainbow of black-and-white excellence!
*Featuring Delfeayo Marsalis on the trombone (son of Ellis, nephew of Winton) at Mount Gretna, PA!
