    Summer is here!  Yea!  Tomorrow is beginning of Memorial Day Weekend and the local fleamarket opens.  Yea! yes Not a very big fleamarket, and not covered.  So, attendance depends on weather.  But it's kind of fun to walk in the sun on the old airport grass runway perusing the goods.  Mostly junk but once in a while there's a gem.  I buy my socks for the year there.  The vendor shows up a few weekends during the summer and she always has the socks I like. Kitchen utensils, tools, collectables, etc.  I saw a really nice telescope there last year but before I went back to give it a second look, somebody had snatched it up.

    The fleamarket gives me the excuse for a mini-adventure to drive to the north end of the lake where the old airport is, do the fleamarket have lunch in the little town diner across from the county courthouse, then drive down the other side of the lake past Chautauqua Institution.  I think I'll stop into the ticket booth at Chautauqua and get my ticket for the first concert of the season June 25th (Alexander Gavrylyuk performing the Brahms 1st Piano Concerto).  Buying my ticket from the ticket booth saves me the $5 charge for buying on-line.

    I love fleamarkets. Wish we had one here. I used to go to them every Saturday when I was in Florida visiting my parents

    Maybe a flea circus would be more entertaining.  I seem to remember seeing one in a cartoon when I was young.

    What's more worse than paying healthcare insurance is that when there is a code error on their part, claims are 90% denied!

    I've officially begun my summer.  I drove up the east side of the lake.  Went to the fleamarket at the old airport.  Found a cheap ($1) collectable thingie.  Bought a loaf of bannana nut bread (mmmm. yum!) from an Amish woman who had a pastry booth there.  Passed up the opportunity for a Corningware "Corelle" 4-quart casserole baking dish & lid, (don't really need one, & it was a little too pricey).  Saw nothing else interesting.  Had lunch at the little diner across the street from the county courthouse.  Drove down the west side of the lake & stopped at the Chautauqua ticket counter and bought my ticket for the Brahms piano concerto.  After some confusion the girl behind the counter finally realized that I had the wrong date, it's not June 25th, it's July 12th.  Apparently the June performance is a solo piano recital by Gavrylyuk, not the Brahms concerto with the orchestra.  My bad. blush  And I did save the $5 by buying at the ticket booth instead of via the Internet.  Then I continued to the Interstate bridge across the middle of the lake and returned to the east side and came on home.  Nice mini-adventure.

    Brahms: Piano Concerto #1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD7TsD3p40w (piano comes in at 3:40; 2nd movement begins at 22:48; 3rd movement at 35:15) The piano in this piece, when played properly, is very lilting. Smoothly gliding & dancing through the melodies. I checked out several of the YouTube clips of this piece by various performers and was disappointed by the hesitant or clipped feeling of those performances. However I did find that the one (linked above) by Emanuel Ax is pretty good. But, my favorite performer of this piece was, and still is, Alfred Brendel who I heard 30 years ago at the Kennedy Center. It still brings me to tears at points in both the 1st, and the 3rd movements.  Unfortunately I couldn't find a video of Brendel playing it, just this recording.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9H6oisgQNQ  Alfred Brendel is one of those performers who doesn't engage in a lot of histrionics & theatrics, grimaces and gyrations of his arms & body while playing.  I think that helps the listener to concentrate on the music instead of the musician.  Performers like Alexander Gavrylyuk and Lang Lang are good, but when watching them up close as in videos I have to look away or close my eyes.  I don't care that they emote with their body, it apparently helps them play well, but sometimes it's distracting.

    My right foot hurts. Just the right foot.  I need to stay off it but the problem is that I need to work which requires being on my feet all day.  I cannot quit my job because my rent money depends on my job for some reason.  Basically not work will risk not having a place to live.
