We had some unsettled weather yesterday, too. Part of my town had heavy downpours with hail, and lost power. We had the rain, but no hail and the lights stayed on. We made a last minute decision to go out last night, and I'm glad we did. We went to an art house type theater in Boston to see a documentary called Echo in the Canyon. It was about the Laurel Canyon music scene in the mid 60s, featuring groups like the Mamas and the Papas, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, and Buffalo Springfield. It was produced by Andrew Slater and Jakob Dylan (Bob Dylan's son and an accomplished artist in his own right), and featured lots of archival film, interviews with some the featured musicians, and Jakob Dylan performing some of the music from that era with artists like Cat Power, Regina Spektor, and Beck. Dylan and Slater were at the theater and held a Q&A session after the film. Then, Jakob Dylan performed some of the music from that genre with his studio band from the film. So, we got a movie, a semi-lecture, and a live concert all in one night. It was a really cool experience and I enjoyed the music tremendously.
Today will be a beach day, and then DD and her BF are coming for dinner. I'll make a bean salad and grill some bread to have with burratta cheese for her, as she's vegetarian, and I have chicken marinating for the carnivores. I'll have to hose all the pollen off the deck furniture so we can eat outside.
Ted-More rain means taller grass...ugh. I hope the service goes well today. How many weeks of rehearsal is typical for the plays Amy is in?
Dianah-Welcome back! Sounds like you had a blast.
Tweety-Sounds like yesterday was a joyful celebration. I'm glad you enjoyed it, and glad that many people were there to celebrate and support.
Stars-I'm telling ya, you should pitch a sitcom based on life with Nannie. What actor would you want to play you?
Herring-I am also horrified that anyone would take a child to a lynching. My Fiance's father is a bit of an Archie Bunker type. He would deny being racist, but he made a comment at his granddaughter's graduation about the black graduates getting more applause. Huh? I thought it was a strange thing to say, and told him that.
Joe-Hope you have a good day today.
Time for breakfast.
