Day by Day, Sunny and Summertime

Jim Harlan and I played at Brookdale Senior Living again this October. We have fallen in love with these gigs. The audiences are attentive, appreciative and lovely. We now play regularly at El Castillo as well. In addition to our beloved Upper Crust gigs, private parties and town gigs, we are looking for more senior living gigs please! Contact Hope. Below are a few songs from Brookdale. Fortunately for the audience, the occasional audio distortions you will hear are in the recording only. Next time we’ll move the camera further from the speaker.

Dear friends, I’m taking the liberty of asking for your good wishes during my upcoming medical adventures, including a lumpectomy 10/25 and a hysterectomy on 11/7. I have stage one breast cancer and a couple un-diagnosed large cysts (likely benign) on my ovaries. The breast cancer looks to be contained and the cysts are causing pain but are probably not a cause for concern after surgery. So by the first of the year, I hope to be be free and clear, aside from regular follow-ups. Please join me in seeing me as healthy and happily active and fluting for decades to come! The joy I get from playing and singing is precious to me as are all of you. Thank you for coming to our gigs. Aside from a Savor Eldorado Party which I will try to attend, and a private party in December, Jim and I are taking a sabbatical until further notice, but fully expecting to play in the coming year. If you would like to follow my medical adventures more closely (oh, joy!) please contact me and I’ll send you a link. Hugs all around, with deep appreciation to you all.

-Hope
