Family and Friends News

Family and Friends

September was eventful. Aunt Mary,
Gary's aunt, died on Sept 26. She was 3 months
shy of 100! My brother, Norm, finally got his
kidney transplant (Sept 20th) after years on dialysis.

My friend Vicki's brother died tragically. He was 
a very talented writer and film maker. Although
I didn't know Geoff, Vicki is a dear, dear friend
and I'm sorry she is grieving.

Had lunch at the Bonefish Grill (coconut shrimp) 
with Nancy prior to her 3 week trip to the "stans"
(Uzbekistan, Kazakhastan, Turkmenistan...more).

Friend, Karen, came in for the weekend from Michigan.
We went to a favorite diversion spot...the casino.
Had wine and laughed.

Went to the Purple Painted Lady Barn Sale and Junk
Jubilee in Palmyra to see friend's booths.  Bought a 
river agate necklace from Carol and Curt, Silvery Moon
Designs (beautiful work), saw Maryanne at her
Books, Etc. booth and bought soap from Chicory Farms
Goat milk soap. Ran into my cousin Lisa (unexpected), 
but so  thrilled to see her. We have had a gorgeous 
September weather, and this day did not disappoint!
