Savannah Bound

I'm going to take a break from Black History Month series this weekend. I'm going to Savannah for my cousin's funeral/memorial service. I wrote about her last month. She died last Friday. It's not going to be a traditional funeral service, since she didn't want to have a church service and she is being cremated, so no burial service either. Not sure what it's going to be like, but I'll be there to show family support. While I'm in Savannah, I'm going to check out one of my nephew and niece's performances of Annie. It's crazy that they are in a kids performance, and charging $20. If I didn't love them, I would definitely skip it. The other crazy thing is that one of their shows is at the same time as the Super Bowl (Go Colts!!!) My sister, who is a big football fan, signed up to volunteer at that show, not realizing that it was the day of the game. Sucks for her. Anyway, I should really go hit the road now, so I'll end this now (and post it later in the day.) Have a good weekend.

I'm surprised a school would schedule a show the same time as superbowl. They wouldn't have that down here, they eat, drink and breathe football!

I went to a service with cremation and it wasn't too bad. The majority of the service was spent with people telling different stories they remembered of the deceased. Enjoy time with your family.

I hope the musical is tollerable. Please be a great uncle and tell them how wonderful they were and how much you enjoyed their rendition of Annie(Even if you HATE IT.)

The memorial will probably be nice and short. Like Ladynay, I wish you safe travels.
