Hey guys, the weekend is just about here and for us....ta da....a three day one!! What is new in your part of the world? How are you going to send the weekend?
As I sit here listening to Spectromagic soundtract thanks to Live365 Mouse House Radio, I am thinking of the day. Twenty two years ago to this hour, a most wonderful event happened to the Mr and Mrs Skips....our dear daughter Alex was born. I can remember it like it was yesterday. She was born on the second or third day of the first Iraq War. Such sadness filled the news casts but such joy filled our house. Not that she will likely see this but Happy Birthday Alex!
Her Mom and I are off to our local art house movie to see the Bill Murray movie Hyde Park on Hudson. Not sure if our British friends have had a chance to see it but here is a synopsis:
The story of the love affair between FDR and his distant cousin Margaret "Daisy" Suckley, centered around the weekend in 1939 when the King and Queen of the United Kingdom visited upstate New York.
Heading out to Charlotesville this weekend with our dearest friends. We will be meeting their daughter (headed back to grad school earlier and couldn't carry all her stuff in one trip), hanging out at the hotel, hitting a winery or two for tastings and playing spades for sure.
Great having Monday off!!!!
