A couple of wins

True, different types of accolades, but I had to share recent good news. Our musician son Ben played piano on a Leon Bridges recording that was nominated for a Grammy. “Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand” is a song on Leon’s Good Thing album. That’s him in the snazzy corduroy outfit on the left below. And yep, the song won a Grammy on Sunday night in the Best Traditional R & B performance category. Ben’s musical buddies Nate Mercereau and Steve Wyreman were involved in the album, too, so it was a nice win for the boys!

Back home, I’m also happy for Ricky and Rhonda at Decora Homes. They took home a prize in the recent 27th annual Bridges Awards gala, hosted by the Saskatoon & Region Home Builders’ Association. For a couple of years now, I’ve been helping Decora write up their award nominations so it was great to see them take the win in a Design, Decor and Renovation category for Kitchen Renovation of the Year (under $50,000).

So glitz and trophies all around!
