Tonight we had dinner with Annette (from Martha and the Vandellas) and her husband Dan....
|Annette and Dan...(in red because of doing a Valentine's show)|
We were celebrating our son-in-law, Brant's new promotion with his boss, Dan, his wife Annette, and family. We were excited to celebrate with them....but we also enjoyed hearing about "Nettie's" fascinating career! There were many stories about starting to sing at age 14 in a U.S that was segregated and prejudiced. Women's lib and Martin Luther King were just beginning to be known. She is working on a book about it and they are traveling to England this summer to meet with an editor and friend working on the project. It was incredibly surreal to be hearing about it all from a singer who I lipsinked to many times!!

We managed to talk about Brant too, and how much he enjoys his work. Poor wife Chelsea was home with a bug being sick!

Congrats Brant, good luck with the book Nettie (& Dan) and thank you for a wonderful evening!
