Judy, I probably told you this already, but like yourself I love art fairs. Since you are busy with the house Sunday but will be there Saturday, your presence alone should have the entire town of Long Grove on premises to mingle with you. Have a great time. Wish I could be there with you to enjoy it. It really sounds like a lot of fun.

Judy, I think they announced on the evening news you would be over at the Long Grove Art festival Saturday. It was the lead story - Judy Greenberg to make guest appearance at festival. More after this break and a word from our sponsor. I know the Nielsen ratings were extremely high on that timeslot of the news as all Long Grove was glued to their sets to learn of the exact hours you would be there. Drink a lemonade in my honor while you browse the booths and take in the music. It does sound wonderful. If I was there with you I would buy you a snow cone. I'm pretty generous when it comes to the beautiful ladies in my life! ; )
