On a Lindy Monday

The weekend is over – but that’s not sad because there are days ahead leading to another weekend – and for we in the USA, next weekend has an extra day. How was your weekend? What did you do?

Ours included two nights of ballroom, errands, dinner with my father-in-law, dinner with friends, work, (while my wife attended a neighborhood car show).

Act 4 of Meals: The Musical provided bacon, barbecue, beef, burgers, cheeseburgers, chicken, chicken wings, hot dogs, meat, meatballs, pork, pork chops, ribs, steak, t-bone, and turkey while including sides as beans, carrots, mustard greens, and potatoes. Meanwhile, I’m researching the next act’s theme.

Cincinnati has been warmer than normal this past week. Fortunately, some cooler (and more normal) weather is on the way for the upcoming week … but the warm temperatures didn’t stop us from enjoying our weekend. How did you spend you weekend?

Our weekend was full with two nights on the ballroom floor (including participating in a Quickstep formation), work, and golf. The Quickstep formation wasn’t a train wreck … a good thing, but I’m glad it’s over. Mother’s Day (Sunday in the US) wasn’t big in our house because we don’t have kids, and our mothers passed away in 1987 (mine) and 2013 (my wife’s). I thought the handbell choir did a good job with Morning Is Broken.

Meals: The Musical returns this week. Meat is the Act 4’s theme, so song titles must include meat(s) or any meat. Use a normal menu as a guideline. For instance, beef, steaks, and hamburger are acceptable, but cows are not. Sausage, ham, and pork are acceptable examples, but pigs are not. Seafood items are not acceptable. The producer is amicable to common sense. Curtain time is Wednesday, 9:30 pm (Eastern US).

On a Froggy Monday

Hopefully your weekend was a good one. So what did you do?

We had one of those full weekends. My sister-in-law and niece visiting meant no ballroom time for us … but we stayed busy. We hosted the family Friday afternoon and evening. All five us on Saturday afternoon went to a painting outing at a business called Painting with a Twist. Oh what fun! I’m not a painter or at all artistic, but Marina wants to transform my work into t-shirts, pillows, posters, and more.

I started with a blank canvas and the process did not involve tracing

After the painting session, we went to my father-in-law’s for pizza. From there, we went to a church wine tasting for wine and fellowship … and it was a wonderful event!

Sunday afternoon we attended a car show in our neighborhood that one of our new neighbors organized.

I drove my friend’s white 1984 Jaguar XJ6 to the event … then after the event, I drove the 1979 MG Midget back to his house

This 1957 Jaguar XK140 was a huge hit with attendees

Warm weather was upon Cincinnati this weekend. What was the weather like in your part of the world? Tell us about your weekend.

As with most weekends, ours was filled with a variety. From ballroom dance to attending our first Reds baseball game of the season … from organizing our recent mess to planting new plants … from attending a birthday party to playing handbells. Yep .. we stayed busy.
