On and On and On

 The day started out beautifully...

 By noon it was grey again.  Pam, Judy and Sally picked me up and we were off to LeRoy.
 So much color everywhere.

 Our destination was The Depot.

 We celebrated Sally's birthday over lunch.

 After a great deal of chatting, we realized it was 3pm and headed home.
 Around 5 it started to spit and sputter.  Tucked the girls in a little early.

 A salad and leftover spags for dinner.

Time to get back in front of the fire.
Night all.

Making Strides....Marathon Day Part I

Up and at um extra early today.  5 other drummers and I met in Rochester for the "Making Strides" to end breast cancer event.  It's our second year.  It was only 38 degrees this morning and we started drumming at 9:30.  Had to dress for the weather and we never stopped for 2 and a half hours.  Last year there were 10,000 participants...have no idea how many there were today.  As soon as they hear us, they immediately start moving to the beat.  A very rewarding experience for a great cause.

 Pink was in.

These kids were volunteers working the event.  They were so cold they never stopped dancing.


Here are just a few of the dancers that joined us.

The rest of the story is in Part II below.
