Gee, now you know more about me than you ever cared to! :)

My son David's school recently held their big fund-raiser for the year, the annual Dinner Dance. It's really an elegant, catered full-meal event, with a silent auction that has some very cool items donated by businesses and people in the community. It's for adults only except for the students who provide the music to dance to (modern jazz and some small ensemble groups who played traditional New Orleans-style jazz). I want to thank our friends Cindy and Steve, Shirley and Tom, Carolyn and Rich, and my sister & brother-in-law, Debbie and Steve, for coming out to support such a worthy cause.

I took a few photos but it's alway so dang dark it's hard to get some good ones. Here are a few that I actually doctored up (and the exposure is still not great!).
