Friday TOD: In my CD player: Cole Porter's JUBILEE with arrangements by our own DR Elmore. I have not taken this CD our of my car's CD player (where I do all my lsitening) since I received it. The orchestrations are exquisite, witty and make me happy every time I hear them. And I hear something new every time I listen to it.

I am in AWE of the brilliance of Elmore!

That fat conductor can go to HELL!

The fat conductor could use a pie in the face.

After such a stressful week, I spent all day yesterday attacking the new yard---cutting and bagging up the grass, (3/4 of an acre) weeding, pulling out tress (my Pull-out-ese work out) pruning and lopping. I could barely move by the end of the day, but it was a good pain.

But I should have kept in mind that I was volunteering at the spring BBQ at the new neighborhood today.

Part of the festivities was a raffle. Our neighbor, the vet, donated an annual exam, including shots, bloodwork, etc.--one for a dog and another for a cat.

I won the cat prize! When I picked it up, the people said "I hope you have a cat"! LOL.

Now I need to figure out which one gets the prize!

I settled on "The Tallis Scholars Sing Thomas Tallis," a 2-CD set, which includes both church music and some of his poetry settings.

And so, to bed!

I got tied up reading about Thomas Wyatt on Wikipedia.  I had no idea he invented the English sonnet!

Now to bed.

OYSTERS!

Which Woody can not abide, along with squid, cauliflower, escargot and runny egg yolks.

He was so thrilled watching one of the dishes prepared - a fresh oyster plopped on bed of sauted cauliflower and topped with a barely cooked egg yolk!

Yummers!

I thought I was going to bed but happened to flip on the TV to a doc on Ahmet Ertegun. I wanted to watch this, but I hated all the gimickry in putting it all together. Yuck. Why not let the content tell the story? Do we need "real" cigarette smoke emanating from the cigarette in the still photograph? (They must have picked this up from the Frank Loesser doc.)

What is Nutella??  It's a delicious "Hazelnut spread with skim milk & cocoa."  Here's a picture:



It's VERY good...in my humble opinion. ;)

Yesterday was a fairly quiet, but fun birthday...I went to work for a few hours and then went over to my sister's house to open presents before we went to dinner.  The family went to Plaza Jalisco and my friend Margo and her daughter Lian met us there, also.  Much food was consumed and a few pictures were taken:
