Busy weekend. Took M to his last basketball practice Friday night.
Saturday morning I drove Anna up to her audition in 9 am
I retraced the ten miles back to CFA to get Anna lunch, almost forgetting the brownie I always sneak in her bag. With another 2-1/2 hours to kill, I found a Wi-Fi hotspot and shopped at Kroger. Somehow Anna’s iPod called my phone, so I returned to the studio & worked on my laptop. Eventually most of the girls left, but not Anna. When the call came out for tap dancers, Anna was one of seven to respond…further securing her place in the show. On the way home we stopped by Sonic for celebratory milkshakes.
Back home we looked up YouTube videos of “The Wiz,” the 1978 Michael Jackson/Diana Ross/Nipsy Russell soul musical. I’m not sure what Anna thinks about what she’s gotten herself into. Sunday after church I discovered the movie playing on the Black Entertainment Television network. She watched for five minutes, then scampered upstairs to do homework.
Watched some of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am all weekend. As usual, Bill Murray and Ray Romano were putting on a show. Will and Anna were headed to Cartersville for the “Distinguished Young Women of Bartow County” pageant. Since the van hadn’t been washed since before Christmas, I was embarrassed into scrubbing it down (as well as filling up the tank).
After they left we took Matthew to the new Chepe’s Mexican Grille, on Johnson Ferry. Having just opened earlier in the week, it was packed, particularly with families with young children. Most probably had the introductory BOGO coupon. The service was decent, considering how busy it was. Most of the wait-staff were young white Americans, though the food was brought out by Hispanic employees. There was a constant line of waiters queing to input orders into the two computers. After we got our food another server arrived with an apparent duplicate order. The portions were generous, but Ceil wasn’t impressed with her chalupa, or the “greasy” thin chips, which often broke when spooning up beans or rice. We’ll probably stick to Willys or El Porton.
After hitting Borders and Sears, we went home and watched “First Knight” – the Richard Gere/Sean Connery/Julia Ormond movie.
MC was one of eleven in the competition, formerly known as
M made his first basket of the season in his 1:30 pm game, the final one of the season. Ceil brought the camera & took lots of pictures. With only seven players, the Heels won 30-19. Took Ceil down to the Tabernacle for the 6 pm Passion service. Louie and Tomlin were there, but Matt Redman was at the Grammys (their song didn’t win).
