Truncated celebration

Unfortunately our trip to the symphony was cut short by the threat of storms, which, as expected, never materialized. We got to hear some of our favorites: Theme from Gettysburg, which always gives me goosebumps, (scroll down to listen,) and the 1812 Overture, but we didn't get to recognize those who have served in the armed forces in Aaron Copland's Servicemen on Parade. We have always loved watching as the members of each branch of service stood while their song was being played and received the grateful ovation of a Red State audience.

We can't complain. We have been blessed by good weather. Before last night we made it 19 years without a storm and only had sprinkles twice.

Our Independence Day celebrations were threatened by the same weather system. We had rain on the morning of the fourth but by afternoon it was humid and cloudy but no more precipitation. It did not stop several of the kids from splashing around in the pool at the get-together we attended.
