A to Z Theme 2016
For my 2016 A to Z theme I used a meme that I ran across on the blog of Bridget Straub who first saw it on the blog of Paula Acton. This meme is a natural for me to use on my memoir blog. It's an A to Z concept and it's about me. No research and nothing complicated. I'm given twenty six questions or topics to discuss that are about me.In April I kept my posts short and uncomplicated. In the midst of it all you might learn a few things about me that you didn't previously know.

Vivando (Soundtrack of my Life--kind of)
It's party day at my house today. The wife of one of my nephews just graduated from her master's degree program and my wife's family will be gathering for another carne asada cook-out. The illustrious scholar's mother has even come all the way from China to be a part of this week's festivities. It will be an international gathering of sorts with conversations in English, Spanish, and some form of Chinese--I'm not sure exactly which dialect.
This will the second party in the past two weeks. Last Saturday we gathered at my brother-in-law's house to celebrate his (and my wife's) father's 92nd birthday. Papa loves his parties and we have one every year for him. I'm sure he's already thinking about his next birthday party of May 2017.
So what I'm saying is that festivities and the preparations for them are keeping me pretty busy of late. I'll keep this post short and I'll wish you a very happy week-end. Then, of course, there's the long Memorial Day week-end starting this coming Friday for those of us in the United States. Right now I've got no specific plans, but I'm sure something is bound to come up.
Gotta go! But I'll leave you with a little tune. I was saving this to use in a Soundtrack of My Life post, but you know something? This current post is part of my life and this is an apt song to go along with what's going on...
Do you host many parties at your house? Is anyone in your family celebrating a graduation of any kind? Do you have a family member whose birthday is celebrated in big fashion each and every year?
