(Well, maybe not the “Bob’s your uncle” part.)

But Life IS Grand, and here are Five Friday Reasons why I’m hooting.

Themes: Cars for Matthew, Frozen for Madison.

One problem:  Matthew likes Frozen better.

4.  Going last night to the Billie on Barnard concert, featuring Jane Ogle and the Southern Holiday Jazz Band, at beautiful and historic Trinity United Methodist Church here in Savannah.

The event “celebrated the fighting spirit and incredible music of Billie Holiday.  This tribute concert is the latest installment in the Thursday Night at the Opry Music Series, a diverse music series hosted by Trinity.”  (From their Facebook page)
