And the winner ...
First of all, let me say that I really had fun with this contest, and reading all of the comments that you left. I revved up the ol' random numbers generator this morning, and it chose number 47, which was [drum roll, please] - Carrie K! Congratulations Carrie, and thanks to everyone who joined. It really was as much fun to run the contest, as it is to win one.
After only one year, I feel like I have made so many friends, and so many good friends (Carrie among them)! The funny thing is that occasionally, I realize that I wouldn't know most of you if I walked past you on the street, which really amuses me.
Weekend in Baltimore ...
Not exactly "Weekend at Bernie's" but it had its moments:
My niece Amanda, and her husband Pat (we stayed with them)
Their kitties, Clancy (left) and Chumleigh (right), were an excellent host and hostess (Chumleigh is the one who actually invited us!)
Saturday night, after getting back from a nice Italian dinner, we had a little party on Amanda and Pat's roof deck. Cool lights, no?
(Right: Zach and Aunt Amanda danceWe were able to celebrate Michael M's birthday, a summer tradition.*

What is wrong with this picture?????
*Michael M's BD is in February. But every year, when we see him in August, we sing "Happy Birthday" - usually so that the restaurant will give him (and us) a free dessert. This year, we just sang it for the heck of it ...
