Hot Enough For You?

A Hot Sunday calls for Cool Jazz.
And how cool is it to go to the Phipps and hear Jazz in the Garden by Joe Negri and his band.
Yep, that Joe Negri, Handyman Negri... The boys were confused, but enjoyed the music.
I took the picture of Mr. Negri signing a picture for the boys, but I left it to the Mister to get a picture of the band. Ummm, nice backside.

Is that a strawberry tart or are you just a goofy 4 year old?

A little of both, I suppose. This is the knitty Baby Tart, done a little different. It is an infant topper, but stretchy to momentarily fit a kid. It has been sent off for a beautiful child.

Pretty as a Picture

The Mister is very, very good with photographing landscape and wildlife. For portraiture, see above, but for Nature, this is about as lovely as it gets.

And did you know, Luther Burbank of Santa Rosa, California, developed the shasta daisy? Now you do.

"I firmly believe, from what I have seen, that this is the chosen spot of all this earth as far as Nature is concerned." Luther Burbank, 1875
(he was speaking of Sonoma County...see, it's not just me)

Mr. Rogers confused the boys no end when they were little. Lots of the people and places in his neighborhood were in our neighborhood, too. It made it hard to draw that real world/TV world line.
