It’s not big, it’s large

The highlight of the week was going to see Lyle Lovett and his Large Band at the Plaza Theatre in El Paso Friday night. I think it’s the 3rd time I’ve seen him – he’s fabulous. His band is great, although Francine Reed isn’t touring with him. But he has great musicians with him, including Russ Kunkel on drums (from the old days of James Taylor). Wonderful!

The Plaza is a beautiful old theatre that was recently restored. It’s an ornate adobe style – my favorite thing were the twinkly stars on the ceiling.

Saturday morning I went to the farmers’ market again in Las Cruces to buy some local honey (delicious) while John shopped at the used bookstore on the square. Afterwards, we had a great lunch at Nopalito’s before heading back to El Paso and Juarez.

The rest of the week was pretty low-key. We watched “The Other Boleyn Girl” last night, which was pretty good.

Flavia got in bed next to me last night to watch the Olympics – she’s so cute! I think my nose is red because I – of course – got teared up at Michael Phelps’ medal ceremony.
