olivia is in town this week-end to celebrate her 3rd birthday.  tonight she’s having a party with nana and papa at chuck e. cheese and tomorrow she’ll be back here at sonnystone to celebrate with us.   today she came by and helped with some gardening after the rain stopped…she brought her own gardening tools, but liked my little shovel best…and she had to have a hat like grandma’s while we did some digging…

i have to play the piano at church tonight, which severely cramped my derby-style.  i’m recording the pre-race and race and will pick up some maker’s on the way home, grab my hat and settle in to watch it like it’s live…  go #1, #2, #7, and #19….
