Happy Cinco de Mayo!

We will celebrate Cinco de Mayo quite festively, I suspect, starting with a morning of furioso Spring Cleaning. There was software by that name [(c) Aladdin] which I found to be almost totally useless--like much of the garbage in cyberspace or just online.

We cannot be present for the Fiesta(!) which our son and his wife are hosting for a friend of theirs from Latin America--sort of a birthday, Christmas, fourth o'July all in one! But we'll be there in Spirit, though we'll have to miss the Derby again this year in order to attend the Grand Finale Concert of the NBSO
(New Bedford Symphony) tonight, which ought to be extraordinary.

If it's not, we'll give them what for....
the Night includes Beethoven's Leonore Overture (which tickles the writer since I just heard the great Medievalist Leonore Stump, lecture at Harvard this week), the Mendelssohn Concerto for Violin, and Bartok's zany little Concerto for Orchestra.

Sounds like fun! Big, Happy May Five to you, too!

Gracias, Yr Obdt Svt
