Besides being Earl's birthday it was Melissa's big birthday bash.
They will be talking about this event for awhile. It was full of lots of happy people and fun going-ons with a few surprises added in. Susan along with her crew of mostly Ray and Armando...did an amazing amount of work. And it all turned out beautifully! ...as you can see...
There was a song sung to Melissa by none other than Sean Cassidy. Most the women at this event said they had his poster up in their bedrooms when they were teens.....Melissa's husband and his back up singers did a rendition of "Do Run Run"....Lots of good toasts and fabulous performances by her son, Bear.
Sunday for Earl's birthday we took Madison for her first beach day. She loved it! We finished off with a great meal at Brothers. Earl had his long awaited prime rib dinner complements of Joe, Jill and Madison.

2 beautiful days ...but I am exhausted! I still have not unloaded the car....2 events back to back is hard on old people like me. I had to miss the fireworks and sleep...not like me at all. I love fireworks! But I met some great people and visited with some friends. Thanks everyone who stopped by my spot in SB and Shell Beach. I guess I got my pic in the SB News Press today. Jill picked one up for me but I have not seen it. I have a "ringer" customer, Penny, in the photo too.
Now it is time to start up my acrylic painting classes at the Art Clinic again. Carol is doing a metal clay class and we are having a felting class on Sunday the 12 with Barbara Carr. I can hardly wait!

physically anyway....still exhausted....I am the last to post from the ArtFiberFest posse of Mary, Charolette, Pam and I. So go check out their lovely posts and I will write more after this weekend. I have a show in Santa Barbara Sat. and Shell Beach Sunday with too small of an inventory...yikes! Anyway I want to say I had a really great time at AFF. New amazing friends and warm re-acquaintances with old friend. And of course Mary is so great to travel with. She likes the same things I do. We did get lost several times but it just added to the adventure.
I had amazing students.
Emily, Reenie and Alma made the class a real treat. I had a really fun time with Reenie at some nearby garage sales. I think anyone would have fun with her...she is so fun and super sweet. And of course there are not enough adjectives to describe how great Teesha and Tracy are.....they work so hard so we can all have this amazing experience. I love them both....
On the home front...Earl is on his way home from his NewBeetle show in Roswell and visit with his folks in Cortez, CO. He called from Barstow. It looks like the mothership missed him again...but by this photo, it was close.
These are my latest sockies....
