Busy Day! The Dalles and More.

Marilyn and I started our day driving to The Dalles (after a quick stop at McDonald's). At the end of the trip, we actually used the GPS on my phone to find the library. Worked great!

Angel had a great crowd and did a wonderful show. We really enjoyed it. Then we three went to Spooky's pizza parlor, a favorite place. (After Mitch's death, Marilyn, Sue and I went there to 'celebrate' his bday, and honor his passing.)

(I made this YouTube video of Spooky's 'piano lady' years ago, honoring Dorothy Travers, who has since passed away. She was such a cool woman!)

You know, Angel is an incredible talent. He really captivated his audience today! He's the official mascot of the festival, our Clown Prince. And manages our Clown Corps (to name a few of his jobs). And he's quite a clown and performer. Plus he's a great friend!

Angel, Dick and sister Sue are coming over Monday night -- something we've been planning since before we got our new furniture. We're going out to dinner, then back here to our house, so Dick can share a special reading with us. He helped a friend with info for a book he was writing and Dick wants to share some of the book with us.

Meanwhile, Marilyn and I are working on the changes to the living room, wanting to have some of it done before then. We got a wonderful piece of art for over the mantle while shopping tonight. And two small tables that we adore. And we came home and Marilyn put together the table we got at IKEA that we're using as a sideboard -- very retro and cute! We haven't taken photos yet, but I plan to share when we do. Fun to change the look of that room after 20 years!

Well, we're both really tired. The heat in The Dalles (it was 99') was murder for us 'heat wimps' (!!!), and the walking and lifting both yesterday and today have us sore and worn down. Anyway...

It was a good day!
