Brisk end to 'Jazz' season
The "Dubuque ... And All That Jazz" series suffered its worst summer ever weather-wise in 2010. One of its four Friday evenings of live music, food and adult beverages was effectively washed out, and a couple others went on as scheduled but under less-than-ideal conditions.
Gray, cool and breezy weather marked the final session Friday night. Attendance was off by at least half (maybe two-thirds), but Madame X and I enjoyed the evening nonetheless, catching up with friends and acquaintances and enjoying Andrew Jr. Boy Jones. (We even bought one of his CDs, "Gettin' Real.")
Another highlight was spending some time there with our oldest two granddaughters (and their parents, of course).
