First words from Don:

How's the weather where you live? It's been hot is Texas
for a few weeks now and getting hotter for the past few
days. I won't scare you by posting what the heat index was
today. Suffice to say it's a great week to be staying
mostly indoors. Seriously.

Let's get to it!

photos. Some of them invoke happy memories for me.

Even more fun that the Harp Twins, for me at least, are the
Mona Lisa Twins. https://www.youtube.com/user/MonaLisaTwins

Aside from the fact that this is a wonderful piece of music
I thoroughly enjoyed watched the faces of these young 
musicians as they totally enjoyed playing together.
Try watching this without smiling. I couldn't do it. :)

Last words from Lisa:

Life in Texas has become a little uncomfortable, temps
are edging up to 100 and more, a little better than some
years. We do what we can in the morning and evening and
hide in the casa midday. I'm still having a great deal of
artistic explosion webmastering our Llano Cultural &
Art Alliance and writing the little art blog, Artbyes.
https://www.llanoarts.org/blog  It gives me an excuse
to surf the web for art information and news.
What could be better than that?

Keep cool, Babies!

See you next time.
