Great Sunday

Paul hit the garden while Sue paid the bills.  The fruit trees needed a little bit of fertilizer so Paul got the rototiller out and dug around the base of the trees applying needed nutrients.  Ought to be a great harvest.

Our plum tree is in the parkway and gets a lot of visitors!

We had to plant another apple tree in the back yard as this one often gets picked clean!

The rototiller did an excellent job of loosening the soil around the tree and allowing the fertilizer to be applied! Beats digging around the base by hand!

We got cleaned up and then headed to Cerritos Performing Arts Center to see the Tex Beneke tribute to The Glenn Miller Band.  What a terrific show!

Did You Know? Gordon Lee “Tex” Beneke (February 12, 1914 – May 30, 2000) was an American saxophonist, singer, and bandleader. His career is a history of associations with bandleader Glenn Miller and former musicians and singers who worked with Miller. His band is also associated with the careers of Eydie Gorme, Henry Mancini and Ronnie Deauville. Beneke also solos on the recording the Glenn Miller Orchestra made of their popular song “In The Mood” and sings on another popular Glenn Miller recording, “Chattanooga Choo Choo”. Jazz critic Will Friedwald considers Beneke to be one of the major blues singers who sang with the big bands of the early 1940s.

After the show, the Brander’s, Kuhn’s and Roberts joined us at the Arte Cafe for dinner.

We then promptly headed for the Kobe Steakhouse the make reservations for Tuesday evening in the Teppan Room.  Celebrating friendship with friends and family is important to us.

Planning for Tuesday dinner

After dinner, we headed home and watched a murder mystery from Hallmark, followed by NCIS and then we crashed!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
