Busy Week! (cont'd)

I accidentally pushed publish before I was done !! Donna , I was sorry to hear about your bird but hope you get another one that sings a lot. Heidi--That was terrible about your hand --it had to be very painful .But I guess it could have been worse & it happened at the end of your vacation didn't it ? Linda it was so good to see you again.I really love getting together with my relatives.
I love the pictures of Aurilia(sp?)It is so neat to see how she grows & tries to do things now. Aren't these computers great??even if they frustrate me !!

Busy week!

I have really had a busy week! On Thurs MaryBeth & I went to the casino at Hinckley-just for the day & we both came out ahead which is not usual-so we were both happy! Went to Austin Sat for concert that Janets' Sweet Adeline group were singing. It was really good.And we got to see Linda again and her new car-On Sun we went to Janets & Jerrys for brunch & had a nice visit.And a delicious brunch! On the way to Donnas house we stopped by the Buddhist temple which is by Farmington & Hampton--The address is Hampton. We went inside the temple after asking a man who was doing yard work-(he was Asian & maybe one of the monks) he did not speak English.Inside was altar with a large gold Buddha & vases & flowers & little statues. It is so unusual to see this huge temple in the middle of all the farm land.
On Tues I went on a tour to Duluth & Two Harbors. Tooka bus to Two Harbors where we had lunch & then got on a train which took us back to Duluth. The leaves were great south of Duluth but most of the trees up there on birch or poplar & they were bright yellow Just the sumac was red. It was a long day-Had to catch the bus by Maplewood Mall at 7;15 AM and did not get back until 8PM but I enjoyed the trip.Mary Beth & 4 of her old classmates were on the tour also.

Now that I have a blog again I had better write something! It was cold here last night & there was a frost warning so I covered the tomato plants. Everything was fine this a.m. I was trying to hold out on turning on the heat but this morning got me --It was 60* in here & that was to chilly for me so on came the heat!!& it feels good--I suppose in a couple of days will have the AC on again--so what does a guy expect?This is Minnesota!!
I love the pictures of baby 'Reila --she is just precious. Sarah you are doing so good. Amazing how ideas change about babies. When Wayne was born in 1943 I had to stay in the hospital for 9 days & wasn' allowed to get out of bed for 3 days & then just to sit in a chair for about an hour! It was better in 1946 when Pat was born--Only 6 days in the hospital!!Of course the Doctors finally came to the idea that wasn't so good. They should have known- the pioneer women had their babies in the wee morning hours & then get up & make a meal for the family!!I think now we have hit a happy medium.
Love to all-Keep blogging!
