The Dumpling Party

I was about to leave for the Dumpling Party on Saturday night when my cousin Gary showed up at the door. (He wanted me to fix his laptop). When I told him where I was going he said he was glad that I was taking some time for a social life. I laughed and said, […]


At the Paint Party

Would you like to hear how I did at the paint party on Saturday? I’d promised a friend who likes to sketch, that I would take her along to this Paint Party, put on by some ladies at our church. (They are trying to round up interested women to form a new Women’s Ministry. I […]


My Outdoor/Indoor Exercise Plan

Are you open to learning about my outdoor/indoor exercise plan? Every January I hear about people who resolve to lose weight and begin to exercise more, and in the past I’ve smiled pityingly and ignored them. Nothing to do with me! However, this past year I’ve noticed that my weight creeps up to a a […]

Banquets, etc.

I was invited to a lovely banquet on Saturday night. A mystery person had paid for my ticket, however I think I can guess who it was.:) Ah, but before I went there I stopped at a small shop in a mall across the city. My good friend, Judy Anne had tipped me off that […]

Tracking Down Old Style Lozenges

Last week Thursday my youngest sister, Erma, emailed and then phoned me from Ontario. She wants me to tract down an old style throat lozenge. Erma has a number of health issues, including bad knees, so she walks – when absolutely necessary, with two canes, and is on a Disability Pension. She has two little […]
