Stratoz and I took a Friday night excursion to hear Catherine Marie Charlton‘s Maiden’s Voyage CD Celebration at the Kennett Friends Meetinghouse. We stopped at La Michoacana Ice Cream on the way, a shop founded by some folks who used to be Kennett Square mushroom workers. Stratoz had guava, and I had the sweet corn ice cream. Yes, corn. I love cornbread with honey, so I took the chance, and it was delicious. I don’t know if I could’ve named what flavor it was, but it was delectable.
Catherine Marie Charlton played one of my favorite jazz standards, Nature Boy. During intermission she had us write phrases on slips of paper, and she and her trio improvised based on what phrases they drew. And she wore orange shoes, which is awesome.
We don’t usually venture out on a Friday, but the music was rejuvenating. Stratoz suggested we stop at a diner on the way home for coffee and a snack. The West Chester Diner was open 24 hours, and full of people eating breakfast at 10:00 at night, which is a PA tradition Stratoz cherishes. Club sandwiches are ok too, and that’s what we ordered as did the table behind us.
