Actually, no. Tom Petty died earlier this month. James and I saw Tom Petty in concert last year, and I'm so glad we did. Tom died too early.
So one Sunday night, we were all at home. Well, Evan was at work, but, Rachel and Samantha were in the basement. Charlotte and Josephine were on screens. JMichael, James and I were watching football. James' phone rang and it was Evan. He said he had a co-worker who had four tickets to see Damn the Torpedoes, a Tom Petty cover band, in Baltimore. Tonight. Wanna go?
James emphatically answered, absolutely. So, Rachel Samantha, James and I headed headed off for a spontaneous night of adventure. We found the venue in downtown Baltimore and we were all thoroughly impressed with the band. They really did Tom justice. Amazing. Thank you, Evan, and your co-worker (who was sick and couldn't go) for treating us to a fun night out.
On a side note, I was very proud of Rachel and Samantha. They knew the lyrics and sang and danced and had a great time.

Mom had some big projects to accomplish before winter, so she needed big help. Eric and Jimmy came up for the day with power tools like chainsaws and power washers. Abby painted a fresh coat on the patio furniture and Samantha, Josephine and JMichael followed Eric and Jimmy around, picking up what they were trimming off of Mom's shrubs. Samantha got to drive Eric's truck all over Mom's yard, and down the back of the property to the stream.
I worked inside with Mom and Abby, and then we all ate supper. Mom's all winterized and the place looks trimmed and neat. Bring on winter.
