Architectural River Cruise – June 26, 2016

OH no! Clouds – Rain – THUNDER!! That was the wake-up call at 7:00 AM on Sunday, June 26th. Fret – “What do they do if it’s raining?” “Do they cancel the boat??” “Will we get struck by lightning???” “Do we get a refund????”. Then, s-l-o-w-l-y the clouds moved off to Indiana and the humidity

Palermo’s Ladies Night – May 14, 2016

Saturday May 14th proved to be perfect for an impromptu, informal Ladies Night which began as an opportunity for Diane Witt O’Connell to deliver a few tiny trees to Patti Duffy Poirier for her garden.

It was a cozy event that five of us attended on a beautiful sunny day. First was lunch, followed by a killer game of bocce ball. Only three wanted to play, so it was Patti and Sue against Roger. Of course the girls won. A very fun and not too demanding a game that is

Between the Holidays – December 6, 2015

Between the Holidays – December 6, 2015

Our turnout for this event was lower than usual for our Christmas get-together. Those of us attending talked about whether this was because, despite the enthusiasm when it was planned to be a brunch instead of a dinner, that a brunch was more difficult to attend during this busy season. Even though the brunch was

7th Decade Challenge

7th Decade Challenge

Unfortunately there was a very poor response to the challenge asking classmates to describe their expectations for the next decade. Judging by the breadth of interpretation exhibited by three people who responded, this could have been an unusually interesting exercise.
