Friday night after Specialis Procer Lodge seven of us went to Dos Rios for dinner. I enjoyed myself and the meal I had was wonderful. Trevor is here from New York so he went with us. (He got carded.)
Saturday the "boys and I" put in some deck time. I love my deck. I have a wren in the neighborhood. (It may be living in the wren house in the middle of Jon's garden) -
The program was the Dixieland Jazz Band the Dixie Slicks and it was "an afternoon of Dixieland jazz, blues and swing music favorites." It was sponsored by the Friends of the Ames Public Library. The seven men and one woman were from Ames, Maxwell, Cambridge, Huxley and Ankeny. I heard sentimental favorites, toe-tapping tunes and great old time music. They played for an hour and a half straight. I was disappointed in the size of the crowd but not in the music. Video below.
On the way home I took a picture of these peonies. They are in full bloom all over town (Except for mine) - Have I mentioned how much I love this time of year.
And the sky was still beautiful. I went to the grocery store and on a whim decided to gamble and for a change I won. $53 on a scratch ticket. I was hoping for more but I am satisfied with that and I still have my original investment. I think I will get a new shirt with it. Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week-end was as pleasant as mine. ARTYAL. Hugs. j
Oh and one more thing. Susan Boyle did not win Britain's Got Talent. She came in second. Here is her last performance.
