Okay, so the Sheryl Crow concert was cool, and not just because of the weather. That woman can rock the house–or the park, in this case. Her band was great, very tight with driving percussion–Alexis’s favorite part of any band. The lead on act was James Blunt, who reminded me of Davy Jones of the Monkees for some reason. Partly in looks but also in accent. The concert was at an outside venue in a really nice park–lots of grass and tall firs. The food at the concessions was a definite cut above the usual. Even though the temperature was a bit on the nippy side, it was a great night for music.
The Italian car show was also worth seeing. Nothing like a Masarati to have me drooling!
And my Mariners have been winning games! A bit late in the season to do them any good, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction. They’ve been playing a lot of what Alexis calls “babies” to see how they’ll fit into next year’s lineup.
Speaking of Alexis, she’s in a tizzy. She’s going to be moving her office from one room to another that’s bigger. Although that’s a good thing, I guess, it means she’s been going nuts picking out paint and fabric and . . . . well, you get the idea. For the next week or so, she’s going to be in transition, trying to schlep everything upstairs to the new room and getting it all arranged. So if we’re quiet or slow to respond, assume she’s got me and the others hauling office supplies and furniture upstairs. How many books does one woman really need to own? And then there’s rehanging all of her matted & framed book covers, and finding a new spot for that squawkbox of a parakeet. Sigh.
So anyway, I’ll check in as time and Alexis allows. Keep safe out there–
