Last week, D-I-L Mac competed in a cake decorating contest. She is a professional decorator at a local grocery store. She came in third. I am always shocked at the judging, because I think the quality of her work outshines the others in execution, creativity and appropriateness to the chosen category. My kids say I am prejudiced in her favor, but I really do carefully examine the other entries, and I do have some artistic training. Oh well, at least she gets to advance and gets a trip out of it for her and our son.
Later in the same day, we attended Rain, a Beatles tribute concert with Son D. and Mac and her folks. It was a great concert and really fun to go out together.
