Went down to the St. James Infirmary...
Whoops! Wrong song. My sense of humour will be the death of me one day
Last night was a meeting of the Westside Music Circle, which I have been attending for around 10 years.
We had a violist who rather made me sit up. I didn't realize how low a viola could go. He even played one of the Bach cello suites on it. Marjorie, the human pianola (she can play anything) was in good form too and I particularly liked some Schumann that she played.
The old gang were there, including of course Jill and Lewis.
Anne gave me an excellent meat pie to eat before we set out which was a rather civilizing influence. I normally make rather a pig of myself at the supper afterwards but the pie filled me up rather a lot so I was more restrained than usual. I did try one of each of the sandwiches on offer, however.
I was a bit dubious about the Humber as I suspected that the battery was on the blink. It performed faultlessly, however.
