Something to Experience - 7 August

I'm getting ready to pack up and go on a paddleboat cruise on the Columbia River tomorrow.   Last evening we spent a  wonderful evening with friends, who corralled a box at the Hollywood Bowl and invited us along for an Evening of Music with Peter Illyich Tchiakovsky, closing with the 1812th Overture.    If you have never had this experience, I assure you that it should be on your bucket list.   With all the doom and gloom that I might have been projecting in my screeds for the last two weeks, putting all that stuff aside and just hanging outdoors at the Hollywood Bowl, and everyone WITH masks and a chance to emerge from a pandemic slough for a brief evening under the stars was a great relief.   With the technology of a small digital device, there is a link here to a video and some pictures taken, to share with you.  Please enjoy.     (sorry, there is no logical order, but I think you get the intent)

Three things to ponder for today:
  1. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian, any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
  2. You're never too old to learn something stupid.
  3. I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.
