    Don’t you LOVE that you only have to drive 8 miles for suitable inspirations!

    Hi Peter, a lovely day and a good concert. What more do you want? I suppose it was like this. Happy summer. We also have sunny days but the plants are suffering. We all need a summer rain. Have a good time, Peter. Greetings from a heated Duisburg.

      I have seen a few town bands play in Germany on my visits there Doris. I think there may have been more beer involved there.

        Indeed! In this summer beer is nearly sold out because the bottles don’t return. You know we love beer in bottles of glass. But in the park we also love beer in big “Humpen” or so called “Stiefel” or in Bavaria the like it in “Maß”.

    I would really like to sit under one of this trees and listen to the music; a glass of lemonade would be perfect.

    Thanks for another Middletown Springs memory. I’m still wishing for a print including the Vail Mansion which is part of the Saxton history. In the mean time the church scene is wonderful. Great also to see your picture. You are looking well. Jan

      Thanks very much Jan, I am feeling much better. This one is East Poutlney, but close enough to Middletown to hear the closing crescendo.
