It's that time of year again. The week before Easter Launa and I replant flowers in the atrium. This year we chose different types of flowers. They're bigger and I'm told will last year round. Let's see what my 'brown thumb' will do this time. For now it looks really pretty and Launa did a great job planting.

Happy Birthday Erika!

Erika's birthday was April 4. The family went to lunch at a barbeque place. I think the best part for mom was being with Anthony & Launa. I'm not sure how she can be 32 when I'm only 42. Ha! Happy Birthday Erika!


Past Friendships still current

Recently I was happy to spend time with friends whom I've known for years. The first lunch was a mini high school reunion. (No, I'm not telling you how many years) We had lunch at the Trump Country Club in Palos Verdes. It was so much fun. The food was delicious but better yet was catching up with those I hadn't seen in years.

I think Jim liked being the only guy there. :)

The next dinner was with the girls from Alpha Beta. As some of you know, I worked for Alpha Beta grocery store for 14 years before I became a police officer. AB is no longer in existence but the ole gang still is. We get together whenever one of us has a birthday. (Happy Birthday Barbara) We missed Carol at this dinner and are praying for her dad's health.

I also had lunch this week with Diane who was one of my best friends in high school. Wish I'd thought to get a picture. It was great to finally get together after so long.
