We had a busy, busy weekend, but it was most enjoyable. C and I had tickets to the Saturday afternoon performance of "A Lesson Before Dying" at the Theatrical Outfit at the Balzer Theater. I was aware of Ernest Gaines' book by the same name, but have not taken the time to read it. The performance was fantastic, and if you live in the Atlanta area, I highly recommend it. The show runs through November 23rd, so you still have time.

C's cousins Heather and Scott joined us for lunch on Sunday. We hadn't been together for quite some time, so had lots of catching up to do, including a good deal of political discussion over last week's Presidential election!

well, here they are now: Obama & W.........not too much longer now!

We hurried home yesterday afternoon to enjoy our church's choral presentation of Mendelssohn's Oratorio, "Elijah", showcasing our fabulous choir and our new Cassavantes Freres organ. The house was packed: well attended by many in the community who are not members of Grace, which is always a treat, as well as a considerable number of parishoners. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Afterwards, there was a reception in the parish hall, where those partaking could also view our wonderful Festival of the Arts.

This is my great nephew Kosta Kim, son of our lovely niece Katy and her husband Young:

Hmmmm: wonder if he's presidential material??? His GrandMa tells me that he most definitely is!!! Nevertheless, he is adorable!!!!

I snapped these pics from our condo balcony last week. Unfortunately the brilliant color doesn't show up as vividyl here as it does in person.

It's almost like looking down on a fabulously pieced crazy quilt!
Oh and there's Stone Mountain on the right!

You and C do so many interesting things down there in red state territory. You almost made it to blue - maybe next time.

What lovely pictures from your condo balcony. Our trees have already lost all their leaves.

Good picture of Obama and Bush were Bush is standing in the shadow of Obama ;-)

XO Eva

Back at my computer at last! Had a great time reading all your posts, admiring Barker and your photos. Sooo happy about Obama, I cried of course, being such a sook, but it was such a relief. Thank you America. XXOO

Kosta is a cutie pie!!!

Looking at the map, the southern states didn't yield...but the pockets of blue definitely helped America pull through!!!!!
