While no wool was viewed or purchased during my weekend  - unlike my knitting friends who spent time and money at the DC Knitters Frolic -   we had a great time here in Thornbury at Jazzmania.

Events took place from Friday to Sunday, but we had tickets only to the Saturday afternoon show.  The Toronto All Star Big Band.  The kids in the hall, so to speak.  

In the past, seating was on a first-come, first-served basis, so I convinced my group  that we needed to arrive early.  Only after walking through  the doors, did we look at our tickets to see that this year there was seating was assigned.  Oops. We were a bit early.

But it wasn't long before the both the band and  guests arrived and music filled the hall. 

One of the things I like best about this show is that the women are dressed up.  Skirts, dresses, flowing palazzo pants.  And lots of those special ladies' shoes that say "I dance."  Heels of a 'just-so' height and thickness to ensure no toppling. Straps across the instep to prevent removal during those twirling jitterbugs. And dance they did.  We counted several couples that did not sit down for entire 45 minute sets.

The band is wonderful.  Young.  Well dressed.  And in love with music. 

Even sis and her hubby took to the dance floor.

No new wool, but still,  a great weekend here.
