And while I have more or less closed my other blog – http://www.ronlehkersrants.blogspot.com – I've also added one further thought on it that you might find interesting. It relates to my thinking about one of the most frequently asked questions I've had among the thousands I've responded to on my Reddit's, Ask Me Anything, "What do you consider to be the invention that has most changed American lifestyle in your 90 years?" It's one I have pondered – and vacillated on – a great deal I like to encourage you to go to my other blog to see my changed perception.
And I must close with an apology to any who thought they were going to the concert of the Smithsonian Jazz Ensemble, Tribute to Ella on Sunday. Just as me, the found that it was performed on Saturday.
I'll look forward to attending more of these free events and hope you will look for the tall, grey haired man with the cane.
