Day One - Omaha


Hi all,

We are off, but only drove to Omaha today.  The reason for the stop here was to attend the season opener of the Omaha Symphony Orchestra.  What a wonderful concert.  The main piece they did was the Sibelius Violin Concerto.  The violinist was Midori who is world renown.  She started playing with major symphony orchestras when she was 11.  I don’t know how old she is now, but her playing is excellent.  The Sibelius is a highly technical piece but she makes the violin really sing.  What a joy to hear.

As some of you know, we have been having the front steps on the house replaced.  As we left early this afternoon, they were putting the finishing touches on. 

Steps from Katie

Steps from Monty

We grabbed this pictures on our cell phones as we were headed to the car.  They still had a little bit of sand between the pavers to put in and the mulch and edging to install in the planting areas.  I think it looks pretty good, but will be much better once the plants get in.  That will happen after we get back from this trip.

Well, today's entry pretty short, but it was a short drive, and not a lot of sight seeing.

Tomorrow we drive to St Charles, MO.  It is a river town along the Missouri River.  It’s claim to fame is as the jumping off point for Lewis and Clark.

More tomorrow
