Happy fourth (and fifth) of July! I realize I'm a day late, but I didn't want to let that stop me from sharing my patriotism and good citizenship with the blogosphere. Yesterday my best friend from high school, Gail, was booked to sing for an hour at the Riverside Inn, a local historic landmark at which there were many festivities happening. When she asked me to sing a couple of duets with her a few weeks ago, I was very excited/nervous/terrified, but I was happy to oblige. She and I used to sing together a lot in high school, and it was great to have a chance to perform again. I'll let you in on a little secret: the reason I'm holding the mic with both hands in the third picture is because they were shaking too badly to only use one, but by the end of show I had loosened up a bit. Overall, I had a great fourth, and it was definitely more exciting than most. Dan and I didn't end up watching fireworks because we were both too darn sleepy by the end of the day, but I did see seven go off on my way home from his house, so I count that as a success.
