Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.

New England provides such marvelous contrasts in topographies.

This is in slight contrast to New York (we took these pictures yesterday!).

Happy Holidays

One of the Pair of Nose-to-Nose Pianos (in one room)

)  Manligheter's Per Nilsson 

This year, the solo piano was paired with a bass (in another room).

Cabaret singer and jazz pianist Billy Stritch mesmerized the room when he so generously performed a song for us.

...Bob, Lee Roy, and Per graciously posed together.

May your holidays be as festive as these pants!

The Dogs of Central Park

If one wants to experience New York, one great venue is Central Park, when open, but before 9:00am or after 9:00pm. It is here that New Yorkers can walk their dogs off-lead.  The collection of dogs and owners is almost as wonderful and eclectic as the city itself.  While during the week, the strata are pretty rigid (the same people walk their dogs at 6:15, or 6:45, or 7:15, for example), during the weekend the schedules are relaxed and there is a greater mixing and matching.

And, of course, while regulars may never learn the names of the other owners, most know the names of all of the other dogs.
