An Irish Wake

Well, sorta. We took the most fun parts and left out the rest, and had one heckuva party in honor of Lynn's Dad and Founder of the Compound, Bob McDonald. The most commonly heard phrase all afternoon and evening, was "Bob would have loved this!" The second most commonly heard phrase (a very close second) was, "This was the best memorial I've ever been to!"

It was pretty simple. We invited whomever we could think of that might want to attend from here in our neck of the woods. We mixed that with many of Bob's favorite foods and libations. And voila, a party!

All the pics are here.

This post contains a fun slideshow of "Bob pics".

And here's Bob's obit in the San Luis Obispo Tribune.

To Bob! (This happened many times.)

Serafina would be quick to point out her makeup is for a show she's in.

Bob's youngest offspring on Lynn's branch, Lexi.

Die-hard shenanigans.

In Summer...

Two of my faves: Wolff Petite Sirah, and Olaf. I sang Olaf's "In Summer" for my Bye Bye Birdie audition. Must have done OK - I'll be in the show which runs June 3 through July 2 at the SLO Little Theatre. Good job, Lynn! Rockin' it at Vons again!

The Torch is Passed

Tracy's been working in the children's ministry department at Grace Central Coast for several years now. A little over a year ago, she became the director for the children's ministry program at the soon-to-be Grace 5 Cities campus, which actually "went live" last October. She got the program up and running, and is now passing on the torch. This Sunday morning the pastor and congregation thanked Tracy for her ministry work!

Set Painting Day

The sets for Legally Blonde, Jr. The Musical have been amassing in our garage for some time now. And today is painting day, which means a number of other set volunteers are pitching in for concerted effort this weekend and next. (There's a 3rd weekend available, if needed.) This group of cast members got a chance to immortalize themselves on one set piece!

To the Zoo by Train

Another fun outing by train to Santa Barbara. In addition to the zoo, we breakfasted at Eladio's, visited Teavana, and had dinner and peanut butter pie with Jon at the Brewhouse.

More pics are here.

Went right to sleep at dinner...
