Bob and I had the good fortune to go out a few evening this week. Thursday, we went to an Art Walk at Glen Echo Park. Some of you may remember our local amusement park with a wooden rollercoaster that my Dad and I would ride over and over, in the front seat. Daddy would just pay the man who would let us go around again and again. Well today it is an artist haven. Visual art classes are held in the Yellow Barn and pottery in several yurts on the grounds. There is a theater and puppet theater as well as the beautifully restored Spanish Ballroom where they have many kinds of dance lessons and dances. There is a lovely restaurant adjacent to the property. This place is worth checking out. For more info check http://www.glenechopark.org/
Friday evening we ushered at Ford's Theater where the musical The Civil War is playing. This show was really wonderful. It rocked! It had great vocalists and a wonderful band, graphic art reflected, and special effects. So glad we got to see it for free, but it would be well worth the price of a ticket.

Tonight, we were joined by our friends Elisabeth and Virginia for an evening of Chopin and Candlelight at the Dunbarton United Methodist Church. Brian Ganz was the pianist and the show was delightful. To learn more about Brian check
