It never was all happening at the zoo

Royal Oak is not high on my list of favorite places. I know it’s all the place now- even big with Hollywood- but that was home to my worst childhood years. The best part was hopping the fence daily at the zoo during my 9 and 10 summers but even then I knew stereotypical pacing when I saw it. Tonight we’re going back for a good thing:

Yes, that would be the Jill we associate with Dan. (Dan just got in from Cleveland a few minutes ago. He cut his own hair this week. This is the first time he hasn’t been wearing one of those caps he takes as fast as I can knit them; maybe he’ll put it back on.) Anyway, this should be fun. I’ve been listening to her rehearse a bit around here and it’s been wonderful.

One response to “It never was all happening at the zoo

  1. It was so much more than wonderful. Jill was inspired. She was a vision. The Elgar piece was delicious. She played beautifully. She got a standing ovation. Dan took her flowers. 🙂
    When those two work together it’s SO nice.
