We left the Archbold's house (Chicago) on Wednesday and drove back to Michigan, this time for two concerts in Iron Mountain, with the first being held at the St. Mary & St. Joseph Catholic Parish. My brothers, grandparents, and Mother met us at the venue as they stayed for both Iron Mountain concerts.
The concert started at 7:00 PM with me singing several of my older pieces such as "Yesterday", "L'Amore Sei Tu", etc. and going into several of my newer pieces, "Come Prima" and "Luna Mezzo Mare". I finished my first set with "How Great Thou Art".
Tom Gursky - Baritone, and I then performed Elvis' "Can't Help Falling In Love".
After the concert I spent a wonderful one and a half hours talking to fans and friends who had attended with my great sister taking pictures of my every move.
After the concert and meet and greet, we went out to eat at "El Capitan" an Italian restaurant. After eating our fill of every kind of Italian food under the Mediterranean sun we were off to bed. The next day we visited our grandparents old homes, old cabin grounds, an Indian burial ground (Pentoga Park), and old family graves, including our grandparents, great-grandparents, great-uncles, etc. as you see my Father's side of the family is from the area.

~Tatiana Marie's Birthday~
(August 15th, 2014 ~ Friday)
The day between my Iron Mountain performances we celebrated my younger sister's 16th birthday. We went window shopping during which she picked out a vintage pin and a vintage "Photoplay" magazine 1945 Christmas edition. Covertly while she was doing so my Mother, Grandmother, brothers and I went and bought a birthday cake and pizzas and partied in the Hotel Breakfast Room.
Happy Birthday Tati !
