What happened to August? I can’t believe I only managed two posts the whole month. I really haven’t been that busy, have I? Let’s take a look and see…
On the 20th of August we went to our first concert at the Mountain Winery since 2019! This was the Fab Four, the Beatles tribute band. They were good, but we’ve seen them several times now so I don’t think we’ll see them again. Mostly it just felt so good to get out and do some dancing and singing! The Winery is taking Covid precautions and you have to show proof of vaccination or (for this show anyway) a negative test within 72 hours. Beginning in October it is a vaccination only venue. It was a very smooth entry process and I have no problem with it.
We also continued to binge watch The Sopranos and got to see our son win the softball championship. Unfortunately things took a turn for the worse and we had a leak under the house which required new pipes throughout. We could have just replaced the pipes that were actually leaking but we figured that if we did it all now, we wouldn’t have to worry about it anymore. The company was great to work with and although it took a day or two longer than we hoped, we didn’t lose the use of the bathroom so we didn’t have to leave the house. I never thought I’d be so happy to do the dishes and laundry!
September started out much nicer though. Last night we saw Chicago from the 4th row at the Winery. They were much better this year than the last time we saw them, which was about 2006. They have a new lead singer who, while he is no Peter Cetera, does a much better job than the guy they had before. We have 2 more concerts this month, Pat Benatar and then Chris Isaak. Good thing we had gotten the tickets before the pipe problem! We also have tickets to see some Giants games. They are playing so well this year!
This morning I woke up early enough to see this:
So I’m thinking September is going to be a good month. What about you guys?
