"It's May! It has no business snowing! Might as well hunker down here til it blows over."
Deda's sister, Terri, captured this moment backstage after these guys from the Dizzy Gillespie All Star Big Band played at (ahem!) Amy's UNC Jazz Festival.
Speaking of the Jazz Fest, here is PG Amy (left) listening as the judge makes comments to Amy's outSTANDing jazz choir. Thanks, Terri, for the photo.

This is the 8 ft section of the walnut tree from which the planks for Shawn and Amy's dining room table will be made. This tree grew on Shawn's grandad's farm and was recently harvested.
When Shawn and I drove to Iowa to check on the walnut tree, we stopped at a huge truckstop for coffee. It proved to be a surreal experience- check out the 42" antebellum dolls right beside the Samurai swords. (Shawn photo)
