Dinner with Sister Sue!

Marilyn had a late night (attending the Newsmakers event -- which is an annual dinner), so sister Sue and I went to dinner together at the Burrito House. We had a very nice time!

The jeans I gave Sue didn't work out -- they are way (!!!) too high-waisted for her. Too bad! But she did love the two purses I gave her (both were almost brand new -- I'm glad to have her using one right now!). And she gave ME her Dooney & Bourke -- the most expensive purse she ever bought herself. Wasn't that sweet of her??? Sue and I have grown so close. (Mom and Dad would be so pleased...)

I finished Dr. King's book "Why We Can't Wait" last night. Again, an amazing, wonderful read. I'm so glad I got that book! Now I want to read more of his writing...

I did some festival website work today. And more cleaning... I took time to make a few new icons, too. I used to do that all the time, but not so much anymore. Super-cold weather here today! But happily the freezing rain didn't happen. Good! I am very much NOT a fan...

No, I didn't end up at the office. Long story -- doesn't matter. Maybe tomorrow. Or Friday. Whatever. The work will get done.

Sister Sue's birthday is a week from tomorrow -- she's turning 70! Hard to believe...

Mom and Dad

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

Wow, it's hard to believe -- but our Mom and Dad were married 71 years ago today!!!

(Dad passed back in 1998, and Mom in 2000. I can't believe it's been 13 years since Mom died...)

How the years fly by...

I hope the folks are sharing something fun together in heaven today. Maybe watching a Sean Connery or John Wayne movie. (grin)
