Awake: 6:51am Temp 47 sleep 6+38 sunny overnight @ St. Augustine, FL.

This morning we have a large breakfast since we'll be spending another day with Ed & Mary Ann; not that we won't be eating....we're just not sure when we will eat.

Meanwhile, Kathy does (1) load of laundry while I spend time on our computer.

Then we visit M.A. & Ed @ 2:30 & find much more to talk about as we wait for the time to arrive for (3) of us to leave for church; Mary Ann is getting ready to perform tonight with the St. Augustine Community Chorus @ 7:30 & we are invited. Meanwhile, K & I plus Ed attend 4:00pm Mass @ the BIG St. Anastasia Catholic Church which was very crowded; the homily lasted only (5) min but the time it would have taken to vacate the huge parking lot would have been (30) + min had not Ed suggested that I park very close to the only exit; only took (15) min.

The St Augustine High School auditorium was literally packed for the occasion & I could easily see why; these volunteers are good: (29) Sopranos; (9) Tenors; (27) Altos & (19) Bass. And their high-quality voices were accompanied by first-class: woodwinds, guitar, bass, trumpet, trombone & drums.

Their production had a theme: "Saints & Sinners" & their music was selected accordingly; "Don't Walk Wit' de Devil," "Devils on Broadway," "Mack the Knife," etc.

Then.... "On Being Just a Little Bit Naughty": "Everybody Has the Right to be Wrong!" "Sweet Georgia Brown," "The Lady is a Tramp," etc.

And.... "On Being a Saint": "Stouthearted Men," "My Special Angel," "Ain't Bisbehavin'," & "When The Saints Go Marching In." It was great! It really was; Mary Ann was well pleased as were we.

This is where we say our goodbye & thank you to Mary Ann & Ed for now; we almost caught up on the yrs gone by but, by golly, we sure had fun doing other stuff too. Ed & Mary Ann will be returning to Long Island @ the end of this month. As they have family in PA & will certainly come to visit them, we really hope they'll include us in their visit.

Back @ our coach, we are wide awake or so we thought & start another movie with popcorn & mixed nuts called: "Bombshell." We watch ½.

Lights out: 1:25am.
