Chamber Music

Jennifer and I had lunch at Salsas. We then went downtown and walked around the stores. I got a couple of small star fish for my guest bathroom.

We then went to The Galveston Chamber Music Society gathering. They meet 4 times a year at someones house hand play music for each other like the composers and musicians centuries before. We had a harpist play 2 pieces. She was very good. Then some pianists and ended with a piece for piano and clarinet. It was fun. Refreshments and conversation followed and I made new contacts. A weekend of music.

Jazz in the Evening

Jennifer and I had lunch at Freebirds. In the process of looking for a new external hard drive for my computer, I found 2 new nice colored polo shirts and t-shirts. Finally found a new hard drive with 250 gigs on it. I still remember when a meg was a big deal.

Then to BJ's for my favorite pizza. When down to Galveston to Cafe Madrid for Spanish tapas and live jazz. We were there the live jazz. I knew the piano player in the jazz quartet. It included piano, trumpet, bass and drums. They were really good and even danced a little with my beautiful girlfriend.
