Three Beautiful Things 12/31/12: Russell and Sonette, Rogue Pre-function, Awesome Slips

1.  Russell and Sonette and I had a splendid three hours or so together eating breakfast at Brails and then wandering around the U of Oregon taking pictures. 

2.  The Senior Warden, Mrs. Senior Warden, and I had a tasty meal together at the Rogue Public House.  While neither the Troxstar nor I particularly enjoyed our respective half pints of White Elephant saison, damn it, my Honey Orange Wheat and Irish Lager were satisfying and I really liked my French dip sandwich and potato chips.  

3.  I don't really have the right words: I loved every second of the Floydian Slips New Year's Eve concert at the McDonald Theater.  The music was pure, the playlist was scrumptious, and the scene was mirthful.  I sure enjoy Al Toribio playing those emotionally soaring David Gilmour solos and riffs.  Closing the night with his great solo to round out "Comfortably Numb" left me ecstatically pumped.
