the next CC

  Since two of you can’t come, to CC at my house, on May 6th, The next time I can have it is Monday, May 10th. I work late both Wed., May 12th and Thursday May 13th. The following week I will be in the Florida Keys until late Wed. May 19th and work 1-9 on Thursday, May the 20th. The next person can have it on the 12th or 13th and I will promise to come after work if nobody can come on Monday, May 10th. I have a feeling we won’t be able to have all 6 or 7 of us. Let me know what you think and we will go by the majority.

I went to the Blind School’s plant sale - I believe they don’t have as much as they did last year.  Sullivans has some and so does Habig’s but neither has their full inventory.  Don’t they know and don’t the flowers know that we want to start planting now?  Who cares about the frost warning.

Marie had a productive visit to Susan’s house.

The bidding war has started for my wood floors ... Brown’s and Blakeley’s both gave me bids.  I told Blakeley’s that we were going with another company whose bid was lower.  Lo and behold - they lowered their bid!  I told them - quality of work being the same - we were going with the company that gave us the low bid to begin with.  What a game!

Enjoy the beautiful weather.

Carol Faye, you are next!  May 6th

We missed you last night.  Advice was offered re:  carpeting stairs, gardening, and visiting the brother in Illinois.  (On the latter, Bill agrees with Susan, and I think we will run over there on Sunday.)

And another runner

When I was talking to Delaney on the phone awhile ago, I told her about Deirdre finishing the Boston Marathon.  She thought that was really neat, and added that she was the top runner (beating out the favorite, a boy named Gene) in the 5th grade 200 meter dash today at 42 seconds!  So I told her I would post her news as well!

Fight At the Library

There were 3 young men(18-20) fighting as I was leaving Nora library this afternoon.  Two adult males - the same racial background as the fighters were trying - unsuccessfully without getting to near them t-o encourage them to stop fighting.  The 2 who were beating up the 1 did leave.  I asked the librarian to bring paper towels and stopped the one guy from going into the library - trying to keep the blood trail to a minimum.  The police came as I was leaving the parking lot.  By the time I got to Habig’s 2 more police cars, a fire truck and an ambulance were also responding.  The guy was in the process of walking away when the first policeman came. Head wounds tend to bleed and look more serious than they are but he did get knocked into the wall.  Next time you are at the library look right in front of the door and you may be able to see the stains.  And I thought this just happened at Pike!

Will be in Munster

unfortunately I won’t be here Thursday. I am going to Munster, Wednesday and have a Literacy workshop in Merrillville, Thursday morning, 9-12. My family and I are celebrating my Uncle’s 90th birthday at a restaurant in Merrillville so I’ll be coming home Friday. I really enjoyed seeing the author, Neil Gaiman. He was interesting, humorus and enjoyable. He read portions of his books, did Q & A and told us a little about his life, writing, etc.

Thanks Sue

  It was really nice of you to make a special trip, over to my house, to drop off the newspapers. My friend Kitzi is coming over, tonight, to watch DWTS so I’ll give her the articles she wants. She is only here for a week.  It was also nice for Honey and me to take a walk with you and your dogs. It was such a nice day , yesterday. Saturday Barb and I saw the movie “the Last Song”. Both of us enjoyed it! This Friday I am going to see the speaker Neil Gaiman, at North Central. He is this year’s McFadden speaker. I really haven’t read his books but I did see the movie Coraline ( from the book) and liked it. Vicki is going with me. If any of you are interested I’m a friend of the library so we can sit close. Last year I sat in the second row to see Nicholas Sparks.

I’ll try to come to CC.

I’m off today and was going to get shopping for birthday gifts but we are having our bathroom painted and terminex is coming. That means I have to shop tonight so if it isn’t too late, Maureen, I’ll be there. Barb fell asleep, last time, so that’s why she didn’t make it to Carol’s. She was exhausted. I got four hours off, from work, yesterday, for Easter. This is the first time, in the 15 years I worked there, that we got this and it’s because of the union!

The Championship game

I can’t express how much I enjoyed being Downtown with 70 thousand people during and after the game. First The four of us enjoyed a very close, well played game, even if we didn’t win, and I felt like I was in New York City after the game. I couldn’t believe the restaurants open at midnight, all the people on the srtreet and the traffic. Even though we were crawling in the car we were in a good mood! Carol, how was your day at Turkey Run?

Blessed Easter and Passover

Have been enloying reading about CarolFay’s Seder meals and seeing pics on FB - looks like you have had a wonderful family time!  We are having Easter dinner with Taylor, Melissa and girls on Sunday.  We went to Good Friday services last night, and watched the Passion afterwords.  Tomorrow morning we will go to Easter breakfast at church, then services.  We will miss having Matthew and Davie with us.

Can you believe how many trees and flowers have bloomed over the past few days of warmth and sunshine?!  We are headed over to Turkey Run State Park lodge with the girls on Monday, coming back on Wednesday and it looks like the weather will be warm and nice for the most part.
