Thanks to Natalie for hosting Three Things Thursday, “three things big or small, that have made you happy this week.”
Last week was a busy one here at Frank Tobey Jones retirement community. Here are the three events we attended.

Wednesday: Lunch Bunch at Marzano
We revisited one of our most popular places to eat, Marzano Italian restaurant.
I especially appreciate that everything on the menu except the lasagna was available in a gluten-free version. I had the highly recommended spaghetti bolognese on gluten-free pasta, and my husband had a pizza with gluten-free crust. Both were delicious, as was my dessert: chocolate torte made without wheat flour.
Thursday: Concert on the Lawn with Scott Cossu
The annual Concert on the Lawn series takes place on Thursday evenings during August. These free concerts are open to people in the nearby community as well as residents of Franke Tobey Jones. They are always popular. People bring lawn chairs or blankets and relax on the front lawn with a picnic dinner and/or whatever drinks and snacks they choose to bring along. People who live in the houses closest to FTJ just sit out in their front yards. A lot of children always attend, and they enjoy running around on the spacious lawn.
Last week’s performance was by composer and performer—and Northwest resident—Scott Cossu and friends.
Friday: Family Picnic
There was lots of food and fun, along with outstanding entertainment by the Filipiniana Multicultural Dance Troupe.
