On Saturday evening, we were honored to have the Yasuda family as our dinner guests. Marina (seated on the right) received her diploma from the University of South Alabama earlier that day. We were delighted to meet her parents who flew in from Japan for the occasion.
After dinner, her mother sang Puccini's O Mio Babbino Caro.
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G voice. What a tremendous gift! We were speechless afterwards. Sketcher, especially, was mesmerized by her performance. A night we always will remember.
Kotoko, these peonies from the table are for you . . . Bravo!
