Mezzo Sopranos and Banana Cream Pie

I came across performances from Die Fledermaus on the grass outside the University Bookstore today. I only had my pocket camera but by hook or crook just have a look have a look!

Digging the shadow character in the window, but where is he walking, he's got no feet

(Apologies for the previous iMovie the size of a postage stamp)


This city can be downright delightful sometimes but I've got to say, "What the actual #$@!, University Bookstore?" your "book" "section" has been relegated to the very back of the "store" and shares dimensions with the matches and toilet paper aisle at the gas station.

Notice there are already specs of pie on the book cover

I found something poolside worthy hiding behind a row of Cheesehead wedges and rubble of Badger memorabilia, so I may eat my way through this series if the first one is good, mmm, summer reading.

  1. Wow, what a random yet delightful thing to come across outside the bookstore. Shame about the amount of space dedicated to books though. DO love you posts, you have such a great sense of humour. #mysundayphoto

    1. I'm pretty sure they were in an opera program at the university as I heard advertising for Die Fledermaus after I saw this. It really surprised me when I saw the sorry state of the bookstore, makes me wonder how the main store on campus looks these days. But I admit to preferring Kindle for the most part (bad eyes).

  2. Happy summer reading, everything looks very chilled there with impromptu play practice to see too.

  3. Hi Jeanna, the lady looks well into her part I must say. And your pocket camera did a good job... Now I hope you licked the specks of pie off the cover before reading. No? Is it really only me who does that sort of thing?

    1. Why settle for specks when you've got an entire pie you failed to deliver to your mother.

    1. It did look like that and a bit like a rehearsal.

    1. And finding it off campus made it all the sweeter surprise.

  8. Hello, that is a fun photo. I like the shadow capture. I think I have read all of that Hannah Swensen series. Enjoy your day and new week ahead!

    1. No books in the store but an opera on the lawn.

  11. Now that's a different operetta experience:):)Viva la cell phone:) That ad of the fluke banana icecream pie murder is very powerful - checking what comes first for me - eating banana cream pie, or wanting to read that book, lol! Thank you for sharing these fun summer for details with All Seasons, Jeanna. Don't feel bad - when temps rise, my brain melts too!

    1. I found that reading while eating banana cream pie isn't as easy as I pictured it. My cell camera is so bad I usually forget I've got it but it's always there and usually charged. It has been a month of playing catch up but sitting here in front of the fan with the window open isn't half bad.

  12. Hannah Swenson! Hers was one of the series I liked to read when all I read was cozy mysteries with female protagonists. Hallmark has made a TV series about her. Fans were at arms when it was first shown because it didn't follow the series. They must be okay now since it's been on for a few years. One of the things I liked about reading Fluke's stories were the recipes. Not that I made them. I like reading recipes.

    It's fun coming across impromptu and organized free music doings. Cheers!

    1. I didn't know Hallmark had made a series about her, I'm amazed by the sheer volume of their content. Sometimes I think watching the series or movie first is better because even though some surprises might be ruined they rarely get it right. Or at least you've got to wait until you've forgotten enough to enjoy whatever they turn it into on screen. I like reading recipes and watching cooking shows as well even though I no longer feel obliged to make the food.

    2. I checked out the latest book from the library. You got me curious about what Hannah is doing now. I'm sorry to say that other than the recipes I got bored so I went to the last chapter to find out the solution to the mystery of her missing husband. I'll just say this: Booo, hisss.

    3. I got it to sit by the pool with but misjudged my capacity for doing sitting by a pool. I've moved on to "Bonkers" on Kindle. It's Jennifer Saunders auto biography.

  13. I like 'cozy ' mystery series,especially if there's food in there. (Most of my reading is summer reading because it's always summer where we live). Like Susieee mac above, I just like to read the recipes I never cook them. There's a bunch of them -- one by Cleo Coyle set in coffee house in new York and there's one with a caterer in Colorado.... and I've read a few by the author you show.

    1. Or food on them perhaps. You make a good point, my reading seems to be random, almost as if I'm getting tricked into it. I like the sound of the one set in the coffee house. I wonder if the catering one would trigger some repressed memories of coffee grounds and people running out on their bill. Would you believe they tried that, even at weddings? People, pffftt.
