Since I have several days off from teaching each week, I don’t look as forward to Fridays as most folks, even when I designate Friday FunDays for particular events.
Last night I wandered over to the next block which contains the expansive and manicured Lincoln Park with its crown jewel, The Fraze Pavilion, named in honor of our local inventor who designed the pop-tab for beverage cans. Each summer, The Fraze is host to incredible talent both of international and local fame. Thursday evening, to cap off the end of summer city block party, The Kettering Civic Band, under the most capable baton of Catherine Abner gave the community a last musical “hurrah” for summer.
Today, I will lunch with my dear friend, Carol Chatfield, whom I’ve missed seeing weekly throughout this pandemic and quarantine. In the evening, I’ll traipse downtown to The Levitt Pavilion to hear ensembles from The University of Dayton music department.
The past two nights I’ve had much appreciate sound sleeps with minimal distractions for bathroom breaks. I’ve not felt especially tired but having a complete night’s sleep is quite welcome.
On with the day. I’ve forty-five minutes of play time with The Quartet before I need to ready myself for my lunch date for which I am most excited.
