I should never have read
I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman by Nora Ephron. It was a funny book, but I hadn't noticed my neck before reading that several years ago. It's been going downhill from there! Can you say turtleneck?

After church Amanda had to go to the opera, so Kim and Ed and I took the walking tour of Duluth. We drove out to Park Point, a very long sandbar with homes, marinas and beaches.
Amanda's friend Kim drove all the way out from Baltimore to see the show. She stopped in Chicago, where she saw some taller buildings, but nothing that would diminish the beauty and uniqueness of Duluth's own reach into the skies.
In the afternoon we toured the University campus and visited some of Amanda's haunts. We also enjoyed seeing Arnold Friberg's illustrations of Canadian Mounties in the Tweed art Museum.
We were so proud of Amanda and grateful to be able to fly out and enjoy her performance!

Amanda played the lead role of Rosalinde last night (it is double-cast) and will reprise it tomorrow night, which we can't wait to see! She got a wonderful review last night in the local paper. You can read it here: http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/event/article/id/280863/
We are excited to play the role of proud parents tomorrow night!

Crystal and I joined Verlene for a craft day today. We started out learning how to batik--with a combination of water colors and wax.
Batik was my favorite activity of the day, because I thought my picture turned out terrific--just as good as Crystal and Verlene's.
We took a break for lunch at a Greek restaurant, where I had the Athenian special. It was fun to have lamb meat, something we don't get often in Maryland!
We wore Crystal out. It turns out you can really have too much of a good thing. Next time we'll limit ourselves to two projects. Our enthusiasm is sometimes greater than our energy! Hopefully, we'll be all rested and ready to go to the airport bright and early tomorrow!
