Hurried through chores as I decided to join the drummers at a celebration of life in Rochester at the Frederick Douglass Rescource Center.
Had just enough time to put some fresh pellet bedding in Abbe's stall. Do you use pellets?
Very grey, but quiet and approaching 30 degrees.
I picked up Jackie at 9:30 and we made it to the Center by 10.
We set up in a large hall, where the reception was going to take place after the service.
The acoustics made us sound like machine guns instead of drums.
There was one section during the service where drumming was done in the auditorium.
It sounded much better there.
Yahya's life was truly celebrated...he did so much for the community.
Home around 1:45, then turned right around and drove to Wegmans to pick up groceries for dinner tomorrow night. Our monthly meal with the Cretneys and Kleins.
Chores at 5:15.
Then we went down to Barber's for dinner.
Gary had a burger and I had a salad.
Barber's is a real townie bar. Tin ceiling, still looks like it did in the old days.
Now there are walls of televisions tuned in to basketball games among other things....and a dart board... and a juke box full of great music.
Sidney's got the right idea.
