Popular , as performed by Mary

Her dance class will be performing to this as well as other songs, I imagine, at their December performance at a local nursing home.

We survived Irene

I took this through the center of a hip squeegee, in Marshalls. Child was in midst of having a mini meltdown, or as they say down south, a come apart!

She got over it in about a half hour, back to normal.










between 11:00 p.m. and midnight, we had tornado warnings. I had our bike helmets accessible, and took Mary downstairs. Bruce said he was going to sleep (tired after working all day). Nerves of steel, he has! Nothing happened, no power outages or big tree crashdowns, thankfully!

Mary and Tony in the artist's studio













Mary drew a copy of Tony's sketch for a new sculpture. Pretty good replica, she just did it in 2 minutes and then showed us.

Another dedicated follower of fashion













trip to TJ Maxx, actually posing for me in her latest wardrobe choices. I picked out the orange bubble dress, though. $12 ! Steal !
