Happy Birthday, Mary!

Today is my droog Mary's birthday. She is the only person I know who loves Paris as much as I do. Since we can't be there we are going to celebrate by sipping champers and dining at Hamburger Mary's and then attending the opening night of the Cincinnati Symphony's new season (box seats -- yeah, baby, yeah!). I am so excited. Paavo is finally back where he belongs after four months of globetrotting and the program is a glorious all-Beethoven one -- crowned with the magnificent Ninth Symphony and the stirring Ode to Joy. I'm sure Alex would have loved it!
