Quick one tonight my friends.  It was a great day to be me!  I had a late treatment at 9:40 and came home to meet Tina and her brother David.  Tina is going to do her first art show in St Augustine this Saturday and Sunday and she is borrowing our tent and tables.  If you don’t want to fight the mall crowds and want to find some incredible hand made gifts you need to check this show out!  You can find the details by following this link for details St Augustine Art Show . Lunch and a nap and my wife took me out on a date to see a concert to celebrate the last chemotherapy treatment.  I even put in my earings and shaved

Rodrigo y Gabriella

for the occasion!  We went to the Florida Theatre to see Rodrigo y Gabriela and what a show it was!  They are Mexican guitarists that played for an hour and a half  with only 2 five minute breaks.  The best description that I can come up with is a flamenco jazz, it is amazing that 2 people, 20 fingers and 12 strings can do the things that they do – what a treat.  Here is the link to their website if you are interested Rodrigo y Gabriela.  I will probably pay for it tomorrow but it was nice to be out with my girl and pretend to be normal for a couple of hours.  Told you short it’s 11:30 and the bed is calling.  Enjoy your Thanksgiving tomorrow and I will catch you up tomorrow night.
