Did you notice the door knocker?

This is what greeted us in the hallway! I am SOOOO jealous!

How unique is this for wall art? I remember when Frank made this for his hallway in Fl. Impressive in person.

As if Kathy hadn't been busy enough...she sent us all home with homemade jam!

It was great to hear Les play again smile Love those stylings.

And I am *so glad* those old sheet music covers made it from Florida - I was afraid they were a permanent part of the house there and were now lost to time. I love that collage.

Yes, we enjoyed Les' playing too.
I wish we'd had more time to visit.

As for the sheet music wall, we literally had to take down two walls in the place in Florida to take them with us.
We replaced the walls in FL, then when we got to Maine we had to reinforce the walls with the music, frame them, and hang them on a good solid wall in our new home.

We miss having you join us Rich. I think the last PWPF party we were both at was in California some years ago.
We plan on hosting more, you and your wife need to take a ride up to the mountains of Maine for the next one :-)

If the piano upstairs isn't enough, I know you'll like the A-100 downstairs.

LL,

Thank you for your music, your pictures, the video, and your friendship. Now if I'd just been smart enough to hide some of your homemade salsa (I never even got a taste. Maybe next time?).

Dreama and I would like to thank Kathy and Frank for hosting and opening their house for such a wonderful event. It was great to visit with old friends, along with making new ones. Franks piano is great, sounds really nice. Kathy's spoof on a couple of songs was a hoot... I was sitting on the front porch the whole time she sang, chuckling.

We stayed at the Angels of the Berwicks B&B... what a great place, hosts where very nice, would recommend it... and can you believe that there were 3 Leslie's staying on the same weekend (well one spelt her name Lesley)

Thanks jotur... I listen to the recitals but have been just to busy to record...

From Franks we drove to Ben & Jerry's, took in Niagara Falls and Rock n Roll Hall of Fame... a packed week for sure...

Thanks again Kathy and Frank

Les and Dreama,

We were very happy you made the long trek to Maine :-)
I hope you can come back some time when we're not quite so busy entertaining a house full of people.

The party was great fun, but it made it difficult to visit with people.

We enjoyed your playing Les, and Dreama is one of those people you can't help liking as soon as you meet her.
Glad you had a good trip, until the next time.

All the Best,
Frank & Kathy

Nice job on that video, lilylady! I really liked the way you combined a musical slide show with the party video footage.
