As retired seniors, David and I relax by listening to CDs on our Bose sound system. We have branched out from the usual classical music to pop music, such as The Carpenters and Bruno Mars. We especially love Sarah Brightman’s CD. David says she has the voice of an angel. Sarah Brightman was once married to Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, who composed “Phantom of the Opera” and “Cats,” two of my all-time favorite Broadway musicals. Sometimes, music evokes pleasant memories of where we were when we first heard a tune.

We also have been barbecuing steaks and burgers and toasting buns on the grill. David said that his mother never had a BBQ grill like ours, so she fried her burgers. We like our burgers with mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, and sliced cheese, with a Vlasic pickle on the side:
We like to group mementos from our travels. Here’s one group – Thai wood engraving on top, David and I riding an elephant outside Jaipur, India, standing on Victoria Peak in Hong Kong, and posing in front of the Taj Mahal in Agra, India:
Here are more mementos – Brass peacocks from India, sculptures from Africa, India, and Guatemala, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs from Tokyo Disneyland, nestling dolls from Dubrovnik, Croatia, and bells from Thailand:
As you can see, David and I manage to find some pleasure in life.
