We were in Concord, NH, the evening of Wednesday, June 13, 2018 to attend the “Summer of Love” concert at the “Capitol Center for the Arts“. Teischan, as is her regular wont, wanted to eat at Friendly’s rather than anywhere else (mainly because she likes the ice cream). So, we went to the Friendly’s at South Main Street. All these pictures were taken around Friendly’s — within the block! I did not venture far.

P.S., The concert was fantastic. I will post more pictures of that tomorrow.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I am very partial to harp music, acutely aware that I need to get my fill of the chords down here on earth, while I can. So, I was delighted that there was to be an harpist, Áine Minogue, was scheduled for two one hour slots at the All Saint’s Church (South Main St.) at 6:30pm and 7:30 pm.

Her name intrigued me. ‘Minogue‘ is a name I am familiar with from Sri Lanka. I was also vaguely familiar with the Australian Kylie Minogue from the work that she has done in Sri Lanka. So, I went looking. No, she has no Sri Lankan connections, but I will not hold that against her.

This is her Website. She has some good stuff there. Her slideshow of ‘Avebury, Glastonbury and Stonehenge‘ was a trip down memory lane for me. She has a well stocked ‘Listening Room‘. I listened, some. It was soothing. Mainly Celtic, and there is nothing wrong with that. I do like a bit of classic harp, but I will take what I can. So, I am hoping I will get to see her. Will have to ‘drag’ the kids straight from the parade and the 1st batch of fireworks. Might be able to make the 7:30 IF I bribe them with Chinese! The Church is small. So it could be packed.

Talking of Chinese, I am going to get my Chinese in Wolfeboro. Usually I get it in Alton, but the new owner, as she has made abundantly clear, has a problem. She pays too much in taxes. So I am trying to help out, as I also did with a local insurance company. When it comes to income and business taxes (including the dreaded NH ‘income & dividend‘) you only pay taxes on what you make — sans deductions. So, one way to pay less taxes is to make less money. Now, property taxes on the other hand … That is another story. Might do West Lake. Deanna likes it. Plus it will be the eve of our 10th wedding anniversary. More than likely ‘the sister-in-law’, as she invariably does, might be along. That could be fun. She was adamant that our marriage wouldn’t last, just because we had only known each other for a month!
