Caturday!







  • Neil Young Down By The River After listening for a few minutes I started to change to something else. Zac said."Hey, put it back!"

  • There's hope for this world after all.

  • During the Richard Shuster piano recital Zac and I went to at one point Dr Shuster was going to make some triumphant, crescendo (or whatever it's called) and then have intermission. Right before he did so he stopped and shielding his eyes from the lights he looked right at Zac and putting his index finger to his lips he very softly said, Shush. Zac said, What did he shush me for I didn't say a thing! I didn't do nothing! Everybody cracked up.

Poor Zac! And your cat graphic is wrong. Incorrect. Nonsense! Pippin said so.

Zac vis-à-vis Neil Young: You're doing a fine job raising that young man.

Good taste in music, Zac-man!

He has also heard Hey Hey, My My and Keep On Rocking in the Free World, no? Daughter likes those.

This is Rich Shuster. I "shushed" you because while I was trying to play a very difficult program, your little boy, who was sitting less than 10 feet from the piano, was talking loudly, making other noises and jumping around in his seat. It's impossible for a pianist to perform with distractions like that, and the entire audience was annoyed. I enjoy having children attend my performances, but when they act up, they should be removed from the hall. It was very upsetting because your presence had a negative impact on the performance; I hope this won't happen again!
