Which was fine. Although it was a fairly busy weekend, I didn't wander too far from home. A co-workers son was married on Friday and I was invited to the wedding. It was a really lovely wedding but those poor girls standing around after the ceremony in strappless dresses just made my bones shiver in sympathy. The bride and groom met on-line about a year ago - he living in Norfolk and her living in Germany. Wow, talk about a long distance relationship. But they met, fell for each other and were married this weekend. Fairy tales have nothing on these two! Best wishes to Scott and Nadine!
BIG BROTHER & BIG SISTERS EVENT
Saturday I was tapped to assist with the 2nd annual Grapes for Kid's Sake fund raiser over at Prime at Anthes' on the Lakes. I'm so pleased that there are still a few ex-Single Volunteer's out there helping out with non-profits from time to time. Grant, Lynn, Cathy and I went to assist with the registration and auction closeout for this event and although it didn't go off without a few bumps and bruises, the guests did their job raising funds for Big Brother and Big Sisters of Summit-Medina County. The event got a nice write-up in the Beacon, check out the article here.
Pio Cesare, these are $66 bottles that I paid $15 each for. I generally never pay over $30 for a bottle of wine since there are plenty of terrific ones to be found at that price point, but in this case, this was a good deal for a great wine. These I will save for a special occassion.

This was far superb to the play we saw last month, 'Cloud 9'. Aside from the performers, this play had nothing to offer except someplace to sit for 90 minutes. Since Brigadoon was a great experience, I'm looking forward to 'Grease' coming in February. I've already seen the lineup for the upcoming season for Porthouse in summer 2011 and am looking forward to season tickets once again.
