October 25, 2009

Last night Deb and I attended the 58th annual Mobile Piano Ensemble at Davison High Performing Arts Auditorium. If you've never been, it is where up to twelve persons play grand pianos at the same time. . . . sort of like Ferrante and Teicher and Teicher and Teicher and Teicher and so on. . . We went in particular to see Jackie Benson our city and chambers webmaster (pictured receiving roses after her performance of Danses Andalouses: Ritmo.)
Lots of great classical and semi-classical pieces such as Chopin's Waltz in C# Minor, Debussy's Clair De Lune and Sibelius Finlandia were part of the expansive program.
Then Sunday afternoon was occasion for the St. Thomas Annual Church Picnic which is always attended by several hundred hungry people. It is a good oportunity to meet with old friends and talk and gossip and talk some more and have fun. Through the courtesy of our church's grounds keeper, "Shorty" Lumpkin, we always meet the last Sunday in October at Amelia Park in Saraland. Since all the church members bring a dish, it is like going to a Morrisons Cafeteria on steroids. Just for instance, their were 58 different desserts to choose from.
