Another Concert in the Park

This may become our summer routine. Sunday evening band concerts in the park. Give me a Sousa march anytime! As I drew the tree I realized that sadly, it has very few leaves. Think that comes with old age. I see that I draw older people. The kids are having fun on the play equipment which is behind me and they are to fast to sketch. Nice excuse.

We are family that is interested in the World Cup games. Of course, there is no way that I want to watch 64 games. However, the USA plays tomorrow and I'm hoping for a win. I'll worry until the game is over. Having a son in South Africa at the game, makes me more attentive. At least the boy knew to take two jackets. The temperatures have been around freezing for some of the games.

By the way, I have some comments done in Chinese characters with what, I believe, are not nice messages, so I've changed the way to comment. I have no idea if this is better or worse. I'll find out as the days progress.

Beautiful weather here in California. This is why we put up with the politics.

That's a great sketch! Makes me miss being in a city that has free band concerts in the summer. Sounds like a wonderful time!

Hi Sandra. I got a card in the mail from you today addressed to Pat Goodman, my mother. I tried to call the number listed for you but it wasn't in service. The card was a beautiful picture of a blooming pink flower. I wanted to pass on the news to you, sadly, that my mom passed away in May of 2008.

I continually get reminders of what a special woman she was when people like you, who she met along her journey reach out to say that they are thinking of her.

Thank you for knowing her and loving her. I appreciate the card and wanted you to know that it was received on her behalf by her family.

Peace and Blessings, her daughter Susan
