Saturday at the Symphony

Saturday night Sarah and I went to the Juneau Symphony with several of her friends.  Another friend, Rosie, was performing which made it extra special.  This was the symphony's "pops" performance and they played music from some of the great American musicals - "The Sound of Music", "South Pacific", "West Side Story", "Rodeo" and ended with music from the "1812 Overture".  They started the performance with "The Star Spangled Banner" and included "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" as well.  Definitely a crowd pleaser.  I really enjoyed the evening even though the younger set politely dumped me as soon as it was over so they could go party.  Sarah had picked me up but then we went in my car - I think know there was some advance planning on her part so I could come home and she wouldn't miss any of the action.

The weather in Juneau has changed!  Sun?  What is that?  The last several days have been rainy and cold.  It's like Houston in winter:)  The high temperatures have been in the 50s!!!  This Texan is not used to that kind of weather in June.  I have gotten my knitting back out and am working to finish my scarf.  Sarah has gotten me hooked on "Glee".  I bought the first season on DVD at Costco and have been watching it.  It has been a relaxing few days!!!  I do try to get my walking in between rain showers but I am way behind.

That sounds like great weather for walking to me! But you know what it is like here right now.
Is that about as warm as it gets all summer?

I also started watching Glee this past season and I'm hooked. They've starting showing repeats from the first season so I'm watching those now.
I'm loving all the beautiful pics you've taken. Makes me want to do another Alaskan cruise!!
