Keto, Babies and Jazz

Yes today was weigh in day.  I lost 8lbs and David lost 6.5lbs.  We are both chuffed. I guess so far the diet is working.  Today it went good.  We had a blueberry, avocado smoothie for breakfast, brisket for lunch and we were good at the concert and had burger with no bun.  Liking our life change so far.

We went out to Eagle River to babysit our girls for Dan.  This is how grandma and grandpa babysit.

 

Let sleeping babies lie.  Just can’t stop taking photos of them.

Dan had a concert, so he headed to it after he showed a house.  We waited for Heather to come home and we got babies ready, so we could head to the concert.  Helped Heather get her girls in the car then we all headed out.  The jazz band had already started. Dan had several solo’s.

 

They sounded great.  Good time was had by all. We had a wonderful day.

 

 

Ole Flat Hippies Do Italy

The Church Palace was a lot of fun. The food was good and the drink was better. We rode a lion and took a selfie in front of artwork called selfie.  The bed was nice too.

 

These people that brought us along with them are really cool.  They took us everywhere.  We got to go to the Vatican Museum.

We had some great pasta for dinner.

We went to the forum which was very old.  We met a seagull with her two babies. We checked out a well too.

We hung out with the Ron

Then we headed to the colosseum.  They said many animals, slaves and Christians were killed there.  I wonder what would happen to flat people like us.

 

We met some new friends when our carrying friends stopped for lunch.

We went to a concert at a Refuge camp.

 

We got to go out to lunch the next day.

Then we got to go to St Peter’s Basilica with the choir.

 

We next stayed in Montecatini and got to eat breakfast out in the garden.

We found a really cool phone.

The drinks all through Italy were great.  We tried many different things.

 

We had tons of different pastas.

 

We had a lot of white meat but we did have some fish that was very good.

 

The dessert were out of this world.

 

We rode on a gondola, saw many rivers, were put in prison, the bridges were cool and sang many times with the chorus.

 

Italy was really fun.  We met many new friends and saw many new things.  The people  who took us with them were great.  They never left us behind or stuck us in a bag where we could not see.  They fed us good food and drink.  I am glad they have decided to take us with them everywhere.

Take Care,

The Flat Ole Hippies

 

 

Pordenone

We boarded our bus and headed for Pordenone where the Anchorage Concert Chorus was going to have a concert in Duomo Concattedrale di San Marco.

We had some free time and we just sat and had a drink with friends.

The Coro ANA Fruili-Montecavallo sang too.  They were fantastic and just a wonderful group of men.  The choir Montecavallo consists of two dozen Alpine manly voices young and old. It is born in the spirit of the Statute of the Anas with the aim of keeping alive the traditions of mountain folklore and cante degli Alpini, veneto and Friuli. It was directed by the Foundation until January 2008 by Maestro Alessandro Pisano. In addition to regular concerts, the performances are also addressed to educational interventions in primary and secondary schools, both concert works, both with training interventions. In recent years attempts to maintain active relationships with popular songs from all regions of Italy, triggering musical growth projects with the cooperation of other choral groups.

We were all tired after our long day, even our tour guide fell asleep on the bus.

 

Concert at Chiesa di Ognissanti

The Anchorage Concert Chorus had a concert in the church of Chiesa di Ognissanti.  Another beautiful church.  It would have been nice if they had more people there but the ones that were totally enjoyed their concert.  It sounded wonderful.
