on the 4th of july tashi and i had a picnic at ashlawn-highland, the home of james monroe
tashi played colonial games
and then we saw a peacock competing with another.
looks like he's missing the point. . .
we said hi to the ladies
and to ferdinand
and then we left
on to the gig where the audience voted on a name for the band.
some children danced
other's colored mandalas
the ballots were counted. out of about thirty names, there was a three way tie. surfzilla clearly received the loudest applause to break the tie. and so, the band has a name.
the next day an old friend from high school, michele angello (on left), visited with her lovely partner, marla. we ate at himalayan fusion and laughed a lot.
when we came home we looked at my high school scrapbooks. oi. i think i'll put those right back in the basement.
