This is our morning thread where we talk about happy, funny, or even mundane things in our lives. It's our way of connecting in a more positive manner. I'm trying to draw in some people who are visiting the site but reluctant to post. It is still chilly and rainy here in Central Virginia; the sort of weather that makes you want to sleep the morning away. Candy had her end of the year orchestra concert last night. She's in 8th grade, so this is her last year of middle school. The orchestra teacher must feel really sad, because she has an excellent core group of players who are dedicated. Last night's concert was amazing! I would have invited some family members to attend, but the parking is abysmal. The seating is also uncomfortable as her school has a gymnatorium. Basically, the only stage they have is in the gym. They set up metal folding chairs on the gym floor and pull out the bleachers. It isn't comfortable for elderly people like my parents. It's too bad that everyone missed such a great concert, because the people who were there really enjoyed it. SO's sister is in town today, and we will all go out to dinner tonight. Pasa, she lives in Austin, Texas. We all flew down for a visit last July. The four of us took a day trip to San Antonio. I thought the river walk was beautiful. Have a great Friday!
