Oh, the friends blogging has brought to me…lucky, lucky me.

Lisa Mertins and me at Riley Farms today. We took five million photos between us (aprox.), listened to some bluegrass music, and quickly agreed that neither one of us would have made a very good pioneer–no hot showers, napping or Facebok status updates.

Listening to today: The Blasters “Marie Marie.”

Jill looked beautiful at the charity dinner on Friday night. As she laughs, Nixon lurks over her shoulder.

Cat

This cat belonged to an artist at the Santiago Art District’s Art Walk. He wasn’t evil. Really.

The cat.

The cat wasn’t evil.

I don’t know about the artist.

He seemed very nice.

Daily Photo: Charity dinner at The Nixon Presidential Library

Collage

We attended a charity dinner at the Richard Nixon Library for our kids’ school last night and little bits of loveliness were found all over.

Leilani, the auction organizer, won my award (which pays out nothing but this picture on my blog) for most beautiful dress, which she accessorized perfectly and appropriately with a clipboard. The library and the surrounding grounds– Nixon’s birthplace, the helicopter where gave his famous “two victory signs” goodbye, and a garden–are just beautiful.

Only one of the four “Deadly Party Personalities” were represented, which is a very, very impressive ratio. I do have the addition of “Person with distracting manner or hair,” who didn’t make my original list, but probably should have.

All in all, a fun night.
