Happy Father’s Day! Madame is off at shows in Texarkana this weekend. I mowed the back three acres here at Stately Hlatky Manor. The ground is more or less level and I use a riding mower, true, but 1) the grass was very high, requiring me to go slowly and 2) while level the ground is nothing but little lumps and holes.
Accordingly, all my vertebrae have been smashed together into a single column of agony. At least I made the cattle egrets happy; they followed me around like I was a particularly productive bit of livestock. I am working on a multi-part set of posts on support – or the lack of it – for classical music in the US; this should be appearing in the next few days.
