OTOH, I will be attending a social event that night at which the liquor flows like water. So there will most likely be a buzz...

Thanks for the response.

BTW, Fritz Reiner's Fifth is a bit crazy. His pauses are positively pregnant. It really catches one off guard.
His final movement is glorious.

Hope you and yours are fine.

Mr. 7wo7rees shared website with me last night before shooting, I watched this video before Las Vegas happened and it cheered me up.
Shared it with my 81 year old mom today who is scared mindless that she has Alzheimer's or severe dementia. Made her smile. She kept asking me about Vegas, it was inconceivable to her, not possible.

Hope it works for you.

and

Two local Confederate flags were quietly replaced with American flags by their owners.
