Very sad news

Some of you may remember Jay Gephart who was the band director at North Central for several years when Matthew and Shana were there - his wife just passed away from breast cancer at age 49. They became good friends of ours, and I had their daughters in my preschool class in 1993 and 1995.  Maureen, I would guess Kevin might also know the Gepharts as Jay has been director of bands at Purdue since he left here in 1995.

My Flight Plan- get your map out

Maureen is correct.  I have been in Minnesota (and other places) alot since April!  Tomorrow I am leaving here at 5 am to drive up to Minnesota and meet in the cities (actually just outside of the cities) at Chanhassen - we are going to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday. Steve can’t go due to work obligations and also jury duty next week.  Anyway, my siblings and mates and my folks are going to the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre tomorrow night to see Forever Patsy Cline, then stay overnight at the inn next door.  Then on Sunday we are going to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and then finish the day with dinner somewhere.

Sunday then I will drive down to New Ulm ( 2 hours south of the cities) and spend the week with my folks.  Friday I will drive back up to the cities and visit several Minneapolis friends from when we lived there before moving here.  Later in the afternoon I will end up at Burnsville (suburb) at the horse farm of an old high school friend, Rob,  a chiropractor!, and his partner - we will go to his lake home for some boating and then I’ll stay overnight with them.  On Saturday it’s on up to Pine City (2 hours north of the cities, not far from Duluth and my brother’s lodge) where I will attend my 40th high school reunion.  Have so many old friends to catch up with (partly why I am seeing Rob first, so we can yak before the reunion) and I am very excited.  I’ll stay overnight there in the vintage Gail Motel, then visit again separately with my best friend Glor (who happens to own the house I lived at in Pine City!) for awhile on Sunday morning.  That afternoon I’ll drive back south about 3 hours to where my sister lives near Rochester (the Mayo Clinic city) and stay overnight until Monday morning.  I’ll drive back to Indy then - about a 10 hour drive. 

OK ladies.  There will be a quiz about my itinerary, and the winner gets a Nut Goodie candy bar

Barb’s sister-in-law

In today’s paper I saw the obituary for Barb’s sister-in-law, so I went to the Rushville newspaper website and found a longer version:

Too Hot for the fair

We decided to go to a movie, today, instead of the fair. We hope to go to the fair Thursday evening. Today it’s the Time Traveler’s wife. Ten the Fever game tonight. Errands and house cleaning tomorrow. Did I tell you it’s Friday when we decide what the plan is for retiring? Elliott is hoping to be the building sub for NC. Judy’s daughter is enjoying here job as art teacher at Westlane.B obby is trying to get on as a sub for washington Township but was told he has to go through an orientation first. No date, just that it would be soon. He does like helping at Butler. He got tickets, for last night’s Colts game, from one of the baseball coaches. Get this, the tickets were on the floor and big bicks!!!

Elliott’s first day

I’m thrilled to report that Elliott had a very good first day of teaching at Attucks. He has three classes of seventh graders and three classes of tenth graders. He said thhe seventh graders looked so small to him but what he couldn’t get over was how POLITE the students were and how much they SMILED. He said it wasn’t at all like BR. Sue, I just realized I have four friends that retired from teaching and all four are not 62 yet so the aren’t collecting SS yet. my friend Kitzi, the special Ed teacher from North View is the latest friend, besides you, that has retired. She is commuting between here and Omaha. Did any of you say you were going to the fair? I’m going Saturday and of course it’s supposed to get hot and humid again. I took Honet for a walk, this morning, and it was very pleasant.

Tomorrow will be crazy

I am off and will squeeze several things into the day as usual. my one big problem is Elliott and I are sharing a car. I have riley until 1:00. Elliott will be at Atticks until 6 or 7. I have to pick him up. before that I have lunch and movie plan. I’m not trying to get out of having CC but the house might not be very clean and I will have to grab something from the store for desert. I still want everyone to come. If I run into a time problem I will call but Elliott said he would be DONE at 7:00 with reg.

Things to Do

Just thought I would start a new post - then had to think of a headline for it that would cover the answer to Kate’s question and also leave open room to let people know of their up coming plans.  Oh, so much thought!
There is the Rock n Roll Museum in Cleveland that is highly rated and I know there is more but that is all I could think of off the top of my head.  By the time I would e-mail by brother and get a response you would be gone and back.
Rachel will be home this Saturday afternoon and Sunday - we are going to see the Fab Four(or is it 5?) - the Beatles at Conner Prairie. She also plans on administering a 3 hour sensory integration assessment test to 3 children for a class she is taking- the test is given individually.
I was wondering where you were CarolFay!  Yes, bring the wine bottles to the next CC.
I’ll put a plug in for Carol Hatfield - Poetry Plus is this Tuesday, our own Carol Hatfield will present the poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson at 7:30.  Right Carol?
It is hard to believe that August is just a few days away!

Calling All

Dave has asked me to send out an “all call” - to Carol for more wine bottles.

Nothing new here - Dave’s Dad seems to be doing well.  He had his hearing checked - he hears at 60% - and he said over a year ago - I can hear, I just can’t make out all the words.  Kathy and I worked for 3 hours in the house cleaning out odds and ends.  Dave and his brother should be able to take care of the rest in a Saturday!  Sue - turns out that Alan likes (and wants) the dresser than Dave and I didn’t care for!  Everything seems to be working out.

too much drama

BIG day…major garage sale at chatham arch followed by an unscheduled trip to pick up Bill in cincinatti. he fell and broke an elbow. looks like my st. louis trip is off, details later. we just got home

Ok the short version: a single step went down Bill didn’t notice it and he went down face first. 6 hours at St. V’s/

Longer version: He came out of the parking garage and was looking around to see where was the building for St. Vincent DePaul regional meeting at the U of Cincinatti. There was a curb and he was not aware that he was moving but down he went. He called Kara because he had my cell phone. The EMT’s took his vitals and they were fine but his arm, knee and face were messed up. Bill then called our friend and she picked him up. He spent the day at her house and Kara and I and the three dogs came to get him and his car. Although he had banged his forehead he seemed ok but with coumidim one never knows about bleeds/ He was/is in considerable pain but we decided to come back to Indy to go to the emergency room for a six hour visit.. Multiple x-rays and CT scan revealed broken elbow but his knee hurts a lot. His arm is wrapped up. So tomorrow we have to make appointments for his knee and elbow. He can barely walk and is singing the blues. My trip is cancelled for now. I am playing nurse but can leave him while he sleeps.

cc at my house Thursday the 16th

Carol Faye we have a 100% go for this Thursday since you promised to be there. I am still fighting the powers at school. I got the specs for the computer and found that I can purchase one for less than $300. Rather than having to return to work I have asked to be allowed to replace the computer or pay $300. If I get the OK I will fight no more forever. Prayers welcome.

It’s a Sad Day for AMC College Park

I went to see the $5.00 The Taking of Pelham 123 and saw a sign in the window. It said AMC College Park was closing on July 12th at the end of the day. It saddens me since it’s been so convenient. The man behind the counter said Keresotes Trader’s point killed them. I think AMC was on the downslide before Keresotes opened. I enjoyed the movie. I want to see the Woody Allen movie and Dillinger. It will be hard working a full week after a three day week and a whole weekend but I have lots to look forward to this week, like always. I’m going to exercise at the JCC, I get a free steak at Eddie Merlout, another movie, a birthday lunch, meeting my HS friend and a Fever game. Also Bobby will be home for a couple of days before his last baseball camp. I hope to see all of you Thursday at Susan’s house.

Voting Time

I am sure we have discussed what to do with letters ...  Today when I was at Dave’s Dad’s house I came across letters that he had written to Wilma- several from the months before they were married and a few when he was away for business.  I showed them to him and asked if he wanted to read them ... he said no but thank you.  I asked if he wanted me to read them to him ... he said no.  I did not ask what he wanted me to do with them.  Now that I have already read them ... was that allowed?  Dave has read them also and sees nothing wrong with it - there was nothing negative in them.
