One of the reasons we wanted to go is because our friends had invited us to a concert put on by their music teachers. I really wanted to go, but came down with an illness that kept me very close to the restroom for about four days! The morning we were going to leave is when it all started. Thanks to cornstarch, I was able to make the four hour trip to Santa Cruz without mishap, but then it all came back with a vengeance as I was getting ready for the concert. I opted to stay home. Rudi went and took our five oldest children. Our friends had also arranged for a baby sitter to come and watch the four youngest. I enjoyed a somewhat relaxing time... when I wasn't in the bathroom, that is!!
From all reports the concert was a success. It was put on by a trio. The gentleman who plays the violin is from Czechoslovakia and teaches our friend, Diana. The two women are sisters and are from the Ukraine. They play the piano and cello. They played a combination of classical and contemporary pieces.
