We’ve had an eventful afternoon! First we filled our stomachs at a favorite eating place. I guess it’s well known how much we like Benihana because we used gift cards from Quinn and Dusty, Taylor and Beth to buy our meals.
It doesn’t get much better than this!
Then we headed on into Portland to enjoy a concert of retro, though timeless, jazz.
These tickets were a gift from friends who also know what we like.
Not only did we thoroughly enjoy the concert, but I got to use our “lower balcony” seats as a lab for the zoom on my new camera.
Here’s where we sat.
Zooming on the whole stage.
Look at this! A close-up on the star.
Then there’s one more “Ben” today. It’s just reporting that son Ben had surgery (to reattach the detached tendon behind his left knee) last Monday morning, and tomorrow morning he’s going back to work! Sounds crazy to me, but I’m glad he’s doing that well. The doc said it will take 6-8 months for a full recovery, but with lots of physical therapy he should be good as new. He sent me a picture of the staples that go from his thigh to below his knee, but I’ll spare you that visual.
