1. Went to FREE out door concert featuring Bill Deasy from Gathering Fields tonight. (DAVE BROWN the other part of the band was not there.) Bill Deasy is the guy that does Lost in America, he also sings the theme song for the Today show. He started the concert by ablibing a song about the Burg, the song made being from around here seem positively romantic. Believe it or not, my hubby who never listens to any music written after 1970, actually liked this. Now tomorrow I am spending the day at race track in WV, watching the horse races and play the slots. On Sunday daughter is coming over to cook shishkabobs on the grill, all I have to do is eat. PS Finally we had a good weather day and a lovely evening, that put me in good mood. Another nice thing is the fact that the concert area is only 5 minutes from my house and the race track is a 45 minute drive from here. I like this because I am not much of a traveler

    BOO HOOO! I have to WORK I am off Monday "Queen's Birthday" weekend public holiday. (Why won't Autralia vote to be a republic - it would mean one less public holiday a year!) and the lifeline bookfest is on. Second hand books donated to lifeline they sell almost by the ton!

    Both of your posts sound good. Out door concert and bookfest would be heaven to me. Dang I miss my energy.

    It's great to read a positive and happy thread. Enjoy your weekend Oramar and may you have a whole year of wonderful weekends to look forward to.

    Most of us are as happy as we set out to be. And you sound like you are "expecting" to have fun.

    My weekend is a goody to, involves visiting with family, sharing
    some meals. I baked a couple of cakes to give to a couple of elderly aunts. They will use them on Sunday when family members drop by, and I'm sure they'll freeze a couple of slices for an early morning breakfast.

    Friends, family, sharing, and giving.
    A recipe for happiness and contentment.

    And, winning at slots is nice! Good Luck!

    Well, oramar May you have may more days filled with small, simple pleasures that blossom into beautiful memories.

    Lucky ol' me gets to work all weekend (my 2nd in a row...what a glutton I am ) But then I have 2 days off and if the weather co-operates, I'll be able to go for a cruise in my 67 mustang convertible, listening to some good classic rock cruisin tunes with the hubby .

    The weekend did not get off to a grand start so it has to go up from here......I refuse to let it get worse :chuckle

    Got home last evening from track, built fire in chimney thingy. Roasted marshmellos and drank wine and talked. Got up early this AM went up to mountain(1 hr drive) hiked, drove way back in woods and had picnic, did a little sight seeing. Just got home, just put pineapple upside down cake in oven, kids will be over to make Kabobs soon. This reminds me of being a kid, when I would cram so many things into one weekend it was unbelievable.
