On a Chasing Monday

Wow! We had fabulous weather for an extended holiday weekend. How was your weekend weather and what did you do?

Given the great weather, we took advantage of it for some fun activities. Whew … we stayed busy, but we also had some downtime!

  • Hosted a few dance friends for dinner and dance
  • Attended an outdoor concert of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra (which is one of the better Pops groups in the US) … and they featured opera soprano Jacqueline Echols and a unique string trio named Time for Three (here’s their opening song)
  • Walked to town (about 2 miles, 3.2 km) for lunch and a shaved ice treat, and of course the return uphill walk
  • Attended a neighborhood party featuring the host’s just-completed beer
  • Took a long night walk in a lightning bug sanctuary (wow … a lot of blinking bugs!) … Impressive!!!!!
  • Worked on the lawn
  • Attended a small dinner/cookout at the invitation of good friends

On a Laughing Monday

Our weather this weekend in Cincinnati was hot and muggy with a chance of pop-up storms … definitely not my favorite weather pattern. Nonetheless, how’s your weather? Did it interfere with your weekend? What did you do?

With my sister-in-law visiting this weekend, we spent a lot of time with her and my father-in-law, but we still got some dancing in.

A WordPress-related question to ask. I haven’t been receiving email notifications regarding your new posts. Are any of you having a similar problem?

My recent use of clips from the Carol Burnett Show have been well received, so hey – here’s another one to start your week. One of the trademarks of the show was how the cast got other cast members to laugh … and if they did, they wouldn’t let up. Enjoy Vicki Lawrence laying it on Carol Burnett. Have a good week
