I Won! I Won!

I actually won tickets in a radio contest!

Well, actually it was a Facebook contest - but it was for a local radio station (thank you KDBZ-FM 101.2 The Peak). And honestly, I had forgotten that I even entered until I got a call from them telling me I'd won!

The tickets were for the Monterey Jazz Festival, featuring Dee Dee Bridgwater with the vocals, Christian McBride on the Bass (the big violin-looking thing), Benny Green on the piano, Chris Potter on the saxophone, and Ambrose Akinmusire on the trumpet.

What a show! Dee Dee has the most amazing voice; all the musicians were quite good, but I must admit I do love a good sax player.

Marlene and I also got to go to the Pre-Party ahead of the show, held at SubZero. They had free appetizers and special drinks, so we sat and chatted for a while, while listening to some local jazz players.

What an Awesome Surprise!

I stopped in at the bank on Saturday to cash a check. The teller at the window was very friendly, so we chatted for a while.

Apparently, she is VERY friendly = I actually got a birthday card in the mail from her last night! She had seen on my account that it was coming up soon, so got a Wells Fargo card and wrote on it for me!

Is that sweet, or what!
