    Here’s a little tune to quicken your steps and warm up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OiUmIU7XhLU

      Thanks, Spaceman!

      My toes are tapping!

      And a variation from the Connecticut Blues

        Spaceman,
        I used to see and hear a fife and drum corps marching in a July 4th parade, but that was years ago. Listening to this brought me back,

        Same tune from the Carolina Fifes and Drums.

        Spaceman,
        I like the sound of the fifes. They are wonderful instruments. They can be carried and played anywhere.

      • Spaceman Says:

        We have an area band that uses authentic brass instruments from the Civil War period. They travel widely to play at various events.

        Spaceman,
        Concerts in the park are such fun, such a family event. I loved the shot of the guy with his fan grooving to the music. The music is really impressive for a smallish band.

        My friends and I used to go to band concerts in Brewster where the town band played in the gazebo. We brought dinner.

      • Spaceman Says:

        So do you consider dinner as a midday meal or a evening meal? In the South it is often considered a midday meal. Supper is typically the evening meal. I thought the distinction was purely Southern, but I researched it and was surprised to find out that the same distinction (according to internet map) is sometimes made along coastal areas of the northeast states.

        Spaceman,
        We have Sunday dinner in the afternoon. During the week we have supper except when I invite people to dinner. I don’t know why it is dinner with company-mayber because it is more elaborate.

    I’m so taken with this image. Thanks to Google, it took no time at all to discover that it’s called “Little Man In Snow” (1947) by Ted Croner. He did some other equally wonderful photos. http://www.howardgreenberg.com/artists/ted-croner?view=slider

      im6,
      I spend some time going through images looking for one which I think fits the day. I knew as soon as I saw this one. It reminded me of how isolating a snow storm is. It is winter.

      im6,
      My friend John used to hunt down the sources of most of the pictures I posted. He went by minicapt when he posted. He’d also send e-mails with links to music he thought I’d like. He was my Apple go to it guy. John was a wealth of information. He always ended his email with Cheers, John.

      On November 17th I received an e-mail from his nephew. My friend John had passed away. I miss him.

      • im6 Says:

        Oh, I most definitely remember seeing posts by minicapt and am so sorry to hear of your loss. I guess we’re at that age where this may become more and more common, but it doesn’t make it any easier or less surprising . I recently began to wonder about a couple of friends of mine (both old roommates actually) who I hadn’t heard from in a while. It only took about 30 seconds on Google and there was Marcella’s picture along with her obit (she’d been ill for years, so this wasn’t a complete surprise). Next was my friend Bob who’d been in touch with me about his planned move to New Orleans. I’d sort of assumed he had, but I thought I’d check. Turns out he up and died only a few days after the last time we’d talked. I don’t know if he’d been sick or something and never mentioned it, but POOF, gone. I know no details. I guess it’s better knowing someone is no longer around, but I’m really not sure.

        im6,
        Another of my friends passed away in November. She once was my secretary then my friend. She had had breast cancer, was doing well then it reappeared. I miss her.

        I keep thinking about all of us and the ages we are. I never cared about the obits now I dread them.
