Wednesday was a pop fly right out of the ballpark and I loved swinging the bat.
Since the original time of the Gem City clock’s raising time was moved from past the noon hour to 11:00 AM, I figured I would miss it. However, a 10:00 AM text from Amy Kress alerted me to the 11:00 AM hoist time.
I hurried to Carillon Park, bypassing the main entrance and took advantage of the staff/construction parking. A crowd had already gathered to watch the clock take its new position. I moved to the far side on the side street where I had a much better view. Another lady and I took photos of one another as we leans against the clock as the two last folks to touch the clock before it was hoisted from the ground to its new tower over looking the Miami River and I-75.
Before leaving the park I got to see both eagles perched high above the ground and seeming to enjoy the attention they were receiving.
It was another super day with hardworking private students before scurrying off to Fairmont High School Symphony Orchestra’s concert featuring the magic guitar sounds of Jim McCutcheon who was the guest artist. Wonderful evening of music. The orchestra was outstanding and Jim was the consummate artist and educator, sharing his joyful passion of the guitar, background on his selections, and his voice in an original composition.
I returned home to research for several hours, eat dinner, and spend time with The Quartet.
I didn’t think I’d make it to see the clock raised to the tower and figured I’d not make it to the concert. Nice additions to my day.
Clocks. Towers. History. Eagles. Students. Music. Orchestra. Guitar. Research. Dogs.
What an incredible day.
