On my birthday, Eleanor, Katherine and I took their BFs out for dinner at The Essex. Afterwards we went to an ice-cream parlour on the main drag and we took the obligatory photos.
Eleanor and Katherine. The latter would be able to explain why she's pink in the preceding photo and light brown in this one. I have nfi.
Three shots of Eleanor ...
... Wayne ...
... and ice-creams. Wayne plays bass, and we went on to a great jam back at my place, with me on piano and Eleanor singing.

Having had a couple or three fortifying beverages, I decided we should all sing happy birthday to me!
Lubica always sits at my feet when I play/sing for some reason. I think the 1960s are to blame. That's Julie Kaesehagen in the first of her appearances here.

Encouraged by the music getting started, Gary Burke went and got a ukulele.
Soon we were singing Sweet Violets.
(Tho it's nearly my bedtime.)
And Norman Blake's cowboy song, Billy Gray.
Anne-Marie took these snaps: thanks!
