The Singing Mural 
What song do you think they are singing?
In the early planning stages, the possibility of painting this mural on the side of Music Hall was discussed. For obvious reasons, they eventually moved to the CET building across the street. Renowned local illustrator C.F. Payne created the design.
Most of the mural was actually painted by a team of local young people, but Payne had to help with parts of it. “I climbed the scaffold to work on Mr. Rogers’ daggone teeth,” he said.
Top row, left to right: Cincinnati arts patron Patricia Corbett a fan, Sesame Street’s Grover, the Phantom from Phantom of the Opera, rock artist Elton John, opera singer Beverly Sills, a euphonium player, jazz singer Cab Calloway, the lead role from opera Madame Butterfly and legendary composer Johann Sebastian Bach.
Bottom row, left to right: Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker,  opera singer Leontyne Price as lead role in opera Aida, conductor Maestro Erich Kunzel, Police Officer, PBS icon Mr. Rogers, the lead role from opera Pagliacci,  broadcasting legend Ruth Lyons (first daytime talk television person), a kid and the Cincinnati Reds’ own Mr. Redlegs.
Well there are the answers.
Will the winners please e-mail me their addresses.

Now for some other news.  Sweet William The Scot has had a very bad limp for the last two weeks due to his dysplasia of his forefoot paws.  The veternary community cannot do anything to fix the problem. I have been carrying him.  Oz referred us to Epic Pet Health a holistic approach.  We will be trying this approach and doing a review. 
For myself in a post called The Gift I talked about my own health issue.  Well my blood numbers have elevated also and with Sweet William needing to be carried I am bone tired.
Other than for the review we will be moving out of blogville.  I don't know if it will be permanent.
To all of our friends from Rocky Creek Scotties at the very beginning, to Frankie tracking us down when we did not have a blog, to George The Lad for including us in Where is George when we did not have a blog and Jazzi accepting me as her date without a blog we applaud you.  Your friendship has meant a lot. 
And to those we met along the way each and every one of you have been a joy in our lives.

Thanks for being our friends
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine
Signing Off

Sweet William The Scot.
