Here is a pic Amy took of us right before we left for our benefit dance. We had the best time, the music was amazing, a huge band with bongo drums and regular drums, trumpets, sax and trombone and all the regular guitars and basses and 4 amazing singers. I can't say enough about how awesome they were, so fun to listen to and to dance to! We danced like crazy, had a great time and saw lots of friends. Very fun to see everyone dressed up and enjoying themselves. We stayed the night with Amy and Jake and took them to First Watch for breakfast on Sat. then headed home.

Our storm is still causing a lot of trouble around the city, lots of people still out of power. We cleaned up the big magnolia tree yesterday afternoon as it got to 57 yesterday and all the ice and snow melted off the tree. We have a huge pile of branches and it left the tree 1/2 of what it was, very sad to see this gorgeous tree in this wounded state.

I have tons of chores today and haven't been feeling completely up to par so I'd better pace myself.

Big hugs to everyone!



  1. You and Tony looked so nice, glad you got to go to the dance. You are right about the Super Bowl game being great.....even if "my" team lost! A really good game.

  2. Nice picture, Di! I'm happy to hear that you had so much fun.

    We got most of the ice storm debris cleared here, too. We were happy that most of the low hanging branches sprang back to normal during the melt, and there was little/no permanent damage.

    Huge hugs!
