Telluride goes to Bellevue

Telluride Inside… and Out is in Bellevue, Washington, strategising and getting technical issues solved. Daughter Kimm Viebrock is listed as "head geek" on our organization list, so TIO has spent the better part of the past week with faces buried in our computers. We have been working hard during the days, but there has also been time to enjoy family.

Grandson Matthew Nesteroff had a busy weekend: it began with a jazz band contest on Friday morning. Matthew is in the trumpet section of the Chinook Middle School band, and this was our first chance to hear him play in concert. We enjoyed the opportunity, and the band sounded great. For Matthew, that was just the beginning. In addition he was an "Evil Eel" in the Bellevue Youth Theatre production of "The Little Mermaid." We went Friday evening, and once again were proud of our boy's artistic abilities. The cast played to full houses for three more performances: a matinee and an evening show on Saturday, and a matinee on Sunday.

IMG_0603 Saturday night, while Matthew was busy at the theater, son-in-law Mike Nesteroff, Kimm, and Susan and I had a wonderful meal at Bis, in Bellevue on Main Street. Sunday we picked Matthew up after his play and headed out to the Issaquah Plateau to eat dinner and listen to a great blues group at Bake's Place, which features live jazz and blues on the weekends. We were treated to the music of blues harp/vocalist/songwriter Mark DuFresne and his band. Our liitle group listened and applauded until the end, even though it was a school night for Matthew.

All this high-class entertainment, family time,  and we got some good work done.
