    1. I can’t play anymore. My hands are so arthritic, it’s seriously painful. Ten minutes of playing, twenty minutes with hand wrapped in ice to bring the swelling down. I finally sold my piano. Someone really WANTED to play it and my keeping it in case arthritis goes away — like THAT’s going to happen — was silly. And it took up room I can use for the organ I never play but can’t get rid of (because no one wants it).

    2. Yes, the Boston Pops are quite an experience. I first encountered them when Arthur Fiedler was the conductor. He was a funny fella and a gifted music ambassador, making the Pops accessible to the masses.

      As for Scott Joplin, I think we should have another viewing of “The Sting”. It’s been awhile since we watched Henry Gondorf and his crew.

  1. What a challenge. Music always makes me smile. Garry’s photo of the two guys sitting while “fishing” – they aren’t even holding their fishing rods.

    1. Cee, The Pops’ Christmas Concert is an absolute delight. You find yourself humming and singing along with all those beloved songs and music. All worries are checked at the door.

    2. I don’t know if the Pops travels. They may. Not at Christmas, though because that is the big season in Boston. But I think other than from November through the beginning of January, they may tour. See if they come to your city. Most orchestras tour and I’m betting the tickets cost a LOT less there than here. We only managed to go because we got free tickets as a gift from a friend. The prices are more than we spend on all the Christmas gifts we give every year. You could buy a new camera for the price of two “not the best” seats at Symphony Hall!
