We went to see the local orchestra perform last night. This is their 19th season. We have been here 18 years and I have never been before.
They did a fantastic job.
I prefered the four shorter pieces to the symphony only because it was too much non-activity on my part during the last, long number.
There is a local composer and by local I mean Summerville, not even Charleston. They played the World Premiere of his piece. It was remarkably good. At least to my ear. We gave him a standing ovation. He had to be over the moon.
It was a pleasant evening. I think I would like to do it again.
It's hard to imagine this as the pinnacle of entertainment at one time while I struggled to stay actively engaged by the end of the evening.
(The stiffness of an arrow is referred to as its 'spine' rating. Some arrows are surprisingly bendy but still fly straight. Becomes significant at top competition levels.)
Jo: Didn't know that, (learn something new before breakfast every day), but the switchable pommel makes perfect sense. That was the same reason I told teenage posties to carry their mail pouch on alternate sides. older staff with twenty or more years one-sided service looked like the bloody Hunchback of Notre Dame.
