The Beat Goes On...
My brother-in-law, Jim, came over and finished planting my new rose bushes, now I have eleven. As they are still new and small, the photo is of one of my older favorite bush, Rio Samba. As Vicky came with him, I gave her the patio chairs I had painted for fun for her backyard. (My own contribution to their “backyard makeover”). Later, that evening, she invited me to dinner and we played hide and go seek with the kids.
Friday evening, I attended a “Music & Wine Tasting”
fund raiser at Turtle Bay for my friend’s former school district. Great wine, hors d’oeuvres, jazz music and NO
kids now THAT is what I call a school activity! On our way home we snuck around in the dark putting up “yard sale” signs for Viv’s sale.
EARLY Saturday morning I arrived at Viv’s to help with her sale as she had done with mine the Saturday before.
The weather for mine had been cold and rainy, hers was hot and sunny. I guess that is spring in Redding.
After the sale and a nap I met a friend for “Hot Flashes, the Musical” at the Cascade theatre. It was sold out and had about 10 rows full of ladies from the Red Hat Society. The musical was really clever and funny! They used famous songs with different lyrics. Some examples were: I am woman, hear me snore,
Agin’ (to the tune of Truckin’), I will not Age (to the tune of I will Survive, In the Nude (to the tune of In the Mood), and several originals. There was a drawing after intermission and I won a “Hot Flashes” t-shirt. Afterwards, I stopped in to say good-bye to Chris, who bartends near by and ended up sitting with his friend Sara and her girlfriends. I felt like “THE YOUNG AND THE REST OF US”!
