New Year’s Eve at 3rd Street Gallery

Haywood and Friends entertain for New Year's Eve at 3rd Street Gallery.

Just a small gathering of friends as we listened to more friends, Haywood and Friends, play their brand of jazz at the 3rd Street Gallery in Carnegie, PA. From left is Phil Salvato, painter and bassist, all the paintings on the walls are his; Ron Bossetti, saxophones and clarinets and other such instruments, former high school music teacher and regular at 3rd Street; and Haywood Vincent, jazz pianist and arranger.

The Promise

Pussy Willow in the Snow

Even with snowfall, the pussy willow buds are fat and ready to open at the slightest hint of spring; in fact, a few of them already have.

Enjoy the beauty and respite of winter while it lasts, keep yourself protected from the elements, but not so well protected that you miss the first warm breezes of spring as they caress your face.
