Update on Anna Lisa - surgery was yesterday (Friday). We haven't heard anything yet but she was doing much better beforehand and the prognosis is supposed to be good. The surgery, however, was scheduled to take 3+ hours. We are keeping her in our prayers.

Finally, an end of a busy week got my mind, if not in gear, at least on to other things. My articles for work were finally tucked into bed late last night and beforehand I attended the marvellous concert Christopher Herrick gave at church last night. Christopher, who was formerly at St. Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey before embarking on a solo concert career, visited us three years ago and liked us enough to come back now that our organ has been refurbished (many more levels of memory added). It was a varied program -- sorry I don't have time to jot it down here. But I do recall he last listed item in the program was Sonata Erotica! Encores were some jazzy pieces by a Norwegian (if I heard correctly).

And now.... off to join the mad ones in NYC. We'll see if Mimi can really stop traffic with just a look, whether Dennis managed to bring good beer or wine in his luggage, and whether Eileen really is quiet and shy.

Until next week, when after being refreshed and inspired, I can clean this place up and get back to business.
