Joe was asked to take residents from Miramont Pointe, where he works, to the Oregon Symphony last night and I got to go with him, compliments of Joe's boss. I love symphony music.
The bright lights were beautiful. The front marquee is just as beautiful.
This is one of the side doors of the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.
The inside of the Concert Hall is very ornate. This is a small portion of the overhead ceiling that we sat under.
No matter where I go, church, concerts, theater.... I have people taller than me sitting in front of me. Fortunately, last night, there were empty seats next to us so at the intermission, we moved over.
Tuesday nights Joe plays pickleball. Just recently they moved to Risely Park, about five minutes from our house. The tennis courts are striped for pickle ball too. Very nice courts.
|So after fixing Viola's supper, I went over to watch him for a while.|
|After each game the players tap each other's paddles.|

|On Saturday, Joe's son and daughter and their family's joined us and oh the fun we had!|
|These are The Gothard Sisters. We really enjoyed their music and dance.|
|Kevin and Joleen, two of Joe's grand kiddos.|
|I think we laughed more watching this than anything at the Fair on Friday and on Saturday, Joe made sure Kevin and Joleen and daughter Kelly gave him a few more laughs by asking them to have fun inside those bubbles.|
|This is Joe and Joleen. Grandpa is trying to terrorize her, but I don't think he succeeded. She got off with a big grin on her face.|
|O.K. This is one of my favorite things to do at the fair. I was getting pretty tired, and decided to sit. These two ladies were next to me and we struck up a conversation like we'd known each other all our lives. We discovered we had a lot in common. Viola is trying to figure out who they are and what my connection is with them....Joe took our picture because when he walked up he said we were having way to much fun and thought maybe I'd like to remember it.|
|This was an interesting way of rolling out the dough for Elephant ears.......|
|She loves tea parties and now she can have one using her own little tea set.|
|She loved the fluorescent red and purple dolphin|
|Cake, Ice Cream, lots of fun gifts and a wonderful visit with cousins, aunts, uncles, parents, grand parents and great grandparents, and friends on both sides of the family, all out side on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. Happy, Happy 3rd Birthday Princess Emily|

|A recent visit to a friends home. The water was as calm as a mirror|
|I love all the seasons. This pretty little leaf was just laying on the grass, but there were plenty more that color on the tree just waiting its turn to twirl to the ground.|
|Two of my great grandsons. Brothers CJ and Dylan off to their first day of school. CJ begins the 2nd grade and Dylan kindergarten. Funny story CJ's family are all Oregon Ducks............Check out his shirt... ..... yep, he's a Beaver!|
|Princess Emily will be three on the 18th of this month, but she got a early birthday present. Meet her new puppy, BOOMER.|
|Earlier this week Joe and I went to Our Gelati Shop for a cool treat on a hot evening. Outside, under the table next to us, was a well behaved nine week old Great Pyrenees puppy whose name was West. I asked if I could take a picture of him. The owner, a very nice young lady showed me where the flash was on my new Android (Samsung Galaxy S11 Skyrocket), then she even took the pictures for me. She even showed me how to put it on auto flash. This generation is so electronic savvy! It took me two days to figure out how to answer the phone. I kept tapping the green spot instead of sliding it..............The smart phone makes me feel dumb sometimes. When the the gal got ready to leave, she tried to get puppy to come, but he wouldn't even budge when she called. The pavement was nice and cool and he was tired. She had to carry him to the car. I laughed as I told her, "remember he's just a nine week old baby....."|
