This weekend we had the opportunity to eat Sabbath lunch at our friend Drew's family's home. His parents are so kind and cook a huge and delicious meal every weekend for a group of college kids. This weekend it they made two different kinds of curry, each very good. It's always so nice to have a home-cooked meal at a nice dinner table with friends after so many mass-produced meals in the caf. Usually after we eat we gather in the living room to play games, read books, or talk. We ended up having a mancala tournament, which I lost by ONE marble to Chris. RaeLea and I also looked through some of the family's old yearbooks from when they went to UC- the same years my dad did! I knew they were friends, so as we looked through I found some shots of my dad his freshman and sophomore years. It's hard to believe he was the exact age I am now. I hope one day my kids can look back at my old yearbooks and be as proud of me as I am of my dad.

Wow! What a guy---and so good looking! I bet you had a good time with your friends (and good food). And the things you said about your dad was so nice, Shelby.

Hello, the 80s called and want their center-part helmet hair back! I bet someone that serious-looking would never be listening to "Best of the 80s" on Pandora tonight, hear a great song by Chicago ("Take me as I am") and in a fit of nostalgic yearning yell "The 80s are back, baby!" at his teenage son. Would he?

Oh that dad of yours was a real hottie....wasn't he? But excuse me because now I want to go and listen to my Chicago CD! Those were the days my friend. Love your blog! But I'm excited to see your finished project too...the one with all the glitter.
