Hope springs eternal

Rusty Palmer drove the Grand Marshall Fr. Bill Scully to lead the Narrowsburg parade.

With a temperature over 100, I’m writing this from bed. Bollinger made it clear that I’m “out of excuses” and expected to hit the next week running. Therefore, I’m hoping to make it to Hawley, PA ( on Friday to catch vocalist Dorothy Stone, whose repertoire includes Broadway tunes, which sounds like my cup of herbal tea. On Saturday, CAS is hosting its version of a “Spring Fling” and the Krause Recital Hall ( in Narrowsburg, NY is presenting Jazzmosis as part of its ongoing “Alliance Salon Series.” I’m told that this group “combines the energy of rock with the improvisational brilliance of jazz to create the element of surprise” and that this show is not to be missed, so I don’t really need my editor threatening me to attend. At the end of the day, as Gloria Gaynor so famously noted, “I will survive.” I hope she’s right.
