Please Stay Tuned Jazz Fans

I have not forgotten about my poor little bloggie here....just been busy at work and home.

We had a great time at the 5th Annual Joe and Josefina's Big Jazzy Adventure down to Denton Texas April 25th. We went to the JazzFest and had a laid back and relaxing time.

Since I have started my new job and I am currently considered "in training" I did not feel it wise to ask for a day off, so we left town after I got off work at 415pm. We arrived in Denton about 10pm, right on schedule. (and no wrong turns!)

The only mishap on the way down there was supper. We will (hopefully) never set foot in a Carl's Jr/Green Burrito again. UJ ate a green burrito that turned him green a little later. Bleh......

The weather on Saturday was very nice: sunny with a little wind. Perfect for sittin', readin', eatin' , relaxin' and visitin' with friends.

We had a good time sharing some JazzFest fare: ginormous cinnamon roll, strawberry crepe, hot coffee, strawberry lemonade, gyros, roasted corn and Mr. Pibb. :o) My only complaint was about the vendors. None of the vendors I was looking forward to seeing were there. I had certain things I was looking for and didn't find them....and I had a hard time choosing anything else, so I left with nothing NOTHING! Can you believe that?

Terry and Sharon arrived mid afternoon and after we had our fill of the music, we trekked off to our next destination: Siam House, our fave Thai restaurant in Denton.

Russell, the owner has always been our server and he remembers us each time. This time he and UJ got to talk shop: music. In particular: guitars. It took us 2 1/2 hours to eat our meal due to their chattering. I had a good time listening to them talk......they bantered back and forth about who was the better guitar player and I was smiling to see Joe go head to head with him.

We must be getting old because that was just about the extent of our fun for Saturday, other than our bedtime visit to the Finish Line convenience store for late night snacks for us. :o)

Sunday morning we slept in and decided to mosey home after check out time. We stopped and shopped at World Market and bought the girls something to take home and headed back to Oklahoma after a loud lunch at TGIFridays in McKinney.

I had bought us some new tunes to listen to on the way: Brad Paisley, Foreigner and Lynard Skynard so we belted out some songs all the way down there and on the way home. (even with all that practice I still can't sing!)

All in all I would say it was a great weekend. Any time spent with the one you love is good in my book.

Stay tuned for pictures. I have had difficulty downloading pictures this week and haven't figured out why.......
