Thawing out.......

Weather Update: ...and today in the news, even as relations between Russia and the US seemed to be freezing over, Trixitina, the much beloved circus bear lumbered out of her cave at the Moscow Zoo, and spontaneously began to play what sounded like the "Rite Of Spring" on a harp standing in the snow. The sight and sound of her playing Igor Stravinsky (with surprising accuracy!!) was enough to draw an evergrowing crowd and finally, Vladimir Putin himself. The Russian president, moved to tears and paroxysms of religious ecstasy, called President Obama and immediately set up a face-to-face conference to rekindle the cooperation and friendship between the two great powers. Trixitina's playing continued on through the day to greater and greater acclaim, and Spring itself seemed to descend on the city causing flowers and trees to begin blooming in a riot of leaves and colors more reminiscent of Paris or Holland than of chilly Russia..... it wasn't until feeding time later in the evening that a Mr. Maslo Arakhisovoye Sendvich, the lead harpist for the Minsk "Tippy-Toes" Ballet Academy for Earnest Boys, was reported as missing....and that his penny loafers were found near Trixitina's water bowl.... a passing musicologist revealed that the bear was not playing Stravinsky, but was in fact just "banging on the harp.... and scratching it rather badly, isn't she?"....
