    Music was great, and the weather cooperated. Insects were no problem, and a nice breeze blew across the area. Only short-comming was that the orchestra would not play an encore. Theresa and I carpooled to the Long and back. Hooked up with many friends.

    OK, I picked up two balloons - Hello Kitty and Muppets. Hopefully they won't pop and can help folks find us. :)
