Well, it was my birthday yesterday - 51 years old .

My Wife Joan surprised me with tickets to the
LA JAZZ FESTIVAL at the Greek Theater about 1/2 hour from where we live...

featuring Chaka Khan / Kem / Will Downing

I think we were the only white people there besides a few musicians and security staff, but it was an amazing show - everyone stood and danced - between shows it was OLD SCHOOL DJ time - this was as much fun as the actual show !

-- as it was more 'our age' old school was the type of music i owned in College - Ohio Players, P-Funk...
Will Downing - like a lou rawls amazing low voice..

Kem - like Al Jarreau - really amazing.

And, is was a warm breezy evening - and I scored a sweet (close) parking spot!

It was a great birthday !

also, we think there is a hot water pipe broken under the kitchen floor, and it is leaking out to the outside back patio...

again, you can click over the image to enlarge and see the deatil..

Click on images to enlarge -- We have the upstairs common bathroom toilet turned off - somehow it must have sprung a slow leak and it leaked through to the downstairs bathroom overnight last night - I turned off the toilet bowl water, and it stopped - so, it is not getting worse - we have two other working bathrooms, so we are not in crisis mode.

The ceiling in the downstairs bathroom paint blistered, as it was full of about 1 gallon of water before it ripped and then poured - all the water is all wipped up, but like I said

1. upstairs bathroom toilet is leaking (water is turned off for now, so issue is stopped - we are okay until Monday if required

2. downstairs bathroom ceiling is damaged.

Then it was into the living room to open a million gifts (okay, most of them were weird socks) but a few useful gifts like moola, thumbdrives and iTunes cards were appreciated!

After a festive meal-ish visit to the Mac-a-tony Grilla-monster it was back to 3087 Sleepy Hollow for ice cream cake and blue drink in blue cups.
