The PAC

This past weekend my friend Marilyn and I went to the NJPAC theatre in Newark, NJ. Both Marilyn and I have never attended a show here before. When we stepped on to the grounds of the theatre, I must say that we both had the same feeling that we weren't in Newark. Its a very beautiful space. We saw a performance of the Alvin Ailey Dancers. Truly an amazing experiences. Not only do these dancers possess the technique of both modern and classic dance, but the sheer athleticism of each dancer and their ability to control their body was unbelievable! Thank you Marilyn for attending the performance and spending the afternoon at the theatre with me. Next time we'll have to bring our boys with us. hee hee

Giddy up!

This blog entry is dedicated to my father-in-law John. Last week, while I was in Oregon my dad had to run an errand. I tagged along and we headed out to the fairgrounds for the annual pack clinic. This is an event for ranchers, horse lovers, and nature enthusiasts of all kinds. I walked around the corral taking snap shots of things I thought my father-in-law would enjoy seeing first hand, had he been there. (For those who don't know him well, he's a very talented rider. He runs the barrels as though he was bred for the rancher's life.) There were horses, mules, and ponies in the stables, as well as several being unloaded from their trailers, but we were there very early in the morning while people were still setting up. Otherwise, I would have taken a few photos of them. Regardless, John, these photos are for you. Enjoy.
