F ³: Close to Home

 Just when I was getting all sentimental about Sunday’s Pops Concert at the Chrysalis…

The weather report for Sunday is grim.

We truly regret that due to expected high temperatures, we have cancelled the upcoming Columbia Orchestra Summer Pops Concert: Preludes and Possibilities, presented by Baltimore Washington Financial Advisors.

The temperature on Sunday, June 23, is expected to reach 98 degrees with 50% humidity and would be an unsafe environment for our guests, our staff, and our artists. 

We know you were looking forward to this incredible performance and we were thrilled to be working once again with the Columbia Orchestra.  While we regret cancelling any event, we take the safety of our guests and artists very seriously

We are actively working with the Columbia Orchestra to set a new date and hope very much that they will return to the stage this year and that you will be able to join us. - -  Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods

It’s absolutely the right choice both for the concert-going public and the musicians. Still, it’s a disappointment. I’ll keep you posted when I learn the new date. It’s always a great concert and it’s my idea of a quintessentially Columbia experience.


Heads up: I’m taking the day off tomorrow on the blog. If you have a Saturday community event you’d like boosted, tag Village Green/Town² and it should magically appear on the FB page. 


One last thing. Yesterday I managed to end up with one hearing aid instead of two after a hair appointment. I thought I’d put both of them in my purse. I checked inside the salon, they hadn’t seen it. 

I was having a no good, very bad day. My hair looked great, though.

I looked through my purse again, so did my spouse. I looked in my car, so did he. I contacted the salon and told them it was still missing, they looked again with no success.

An hour or so later I received a text from my hairdresser that the hearing aid had been found. A client heard the hairdressers talking about it, walked outdoors and found it in the parking lot. It was completely unharmed.

So, anyway, if you are looking for a new place to have your hair cut, styled, whatever…may I sugggest Willow & Oak Salon? 

You can learn more about what services they offer at their website. They’re also on Instagram. My stylist is Katie and I followed her to Willow and Oak from Floyd’s. I adore her because she knows exactly what I want and takes the time to get it right.

Obviously there are other stylists as well. Check them out if you’re looking for a new place.
