Sophia and Avery

While Thais and Lenin went to a 49ers game (in the new stadium),
image
I got to spend time with Sophia and Avery. While Sophia went to a birthday party,
image
Avery and I hung out.
image
Maybe going into the Spirit Halloween store wasn’t a good idea. When Grandma stepped on a sign that said “Step here” a scary mechanical cat began meowing. That was ok, but when it “leaped” toward Avery, he catapulted himself into my arms. I asked Avery if I should step on any more signs. His answer was always an emphatic “No!”

Soon the party was over. Time to go home.

Another friend from my teaching days at Sierra View. Ethel Smart was one of the best instructional assistants I ever had. At 81, she is still going strong. Lucky Madison kids!

This sign in a drafty hallway made me laugh.

RLEHS Sunday Social

We always begin with a welcome, recent information, and a potluck.
image
Lillian Smith, an RLEHS member, told us about Master Food Preservers, a public service community outreach that provides up-to-date information on food safety and preservation.
image
The second speaker was local resident Norma Jean Thornton who has entered baked goods in recent county and state fairs and won!
image
Finally, everyone in attendance was asked to judge the Chocolate Chip Cookie Contest. There were six entrants, therefore make a good decision meant a lot of tasting.
image
image
L-R, back row: David Marquette, Charlea Moore-3rd place, Shirley Breckenridge-2nd place, Harold Horrell-1st place. Front row: Nicole Brogdon, me, Kellen, Stacey, Odin.
image
This was a fun event and everyone had a good time.

Happy Birthday to me. A big thank-you to everyone sent messages by phone, text, email, or card-sent-in-the-mail: Justin & Jennifer, Thais & Lenin, Phyllis, Paula, Adrienne, Maria, Carol, Glenn, Leone, my dentist, and Jeannette from the temp agency. Whether family, friend or business, it’s nice to be remembered.
