Today was our monthly Reader's Group at the local Round Table Pizza. Our guest speaker was author Sheila Roberts. She is so delightful, very out going, funny ~ just a really great gal. We always look forward to Sheila's visits. She has a new book out, called 'Love in Bloom.' I will absolutely be buying this book in the next few days. It sounds like a fun read. I hope you'll look for it too, I know you'll enjoy this book from Sheila.
We are planning on leaving town again for about 4 weeks. Our estimated blast off date is Monday May 11th. We're thinking about taking a round about way to get to southern California. Perhaps going east for awhile and then heading south thru Salt Lake City and the west to Pasadena. Then come up I-5 on the way home. I have a dentist appointment June 10th and Bob has a grand daughter graduating from high school on June 11th so we'll be back just before that.
I've printed out lists of penny squisher machines in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. I'm prepared !
Last night I bought a new laptop. It's one of those little Acer Aspires in a deep red. I wanted the pink one but no one in the area had one. I'm excited and hopeful that I will be able to use it where ever WiFi is available. It was decided by my local PC repair shop that my old laptop just won't work wireless. It works great when hooked to a DSL cable but not wireless....it's just too old. So once I get home, I may just put it on Craig's List for use as a secondary computer for a child or just to have a back up. I used it when my hard drive was in the shop and it was fine.
I'm hoping the weather clears before we leave because the grass in my back yard is really getting tall. My neighbor will water my plants (once the rain stops) and I know my son will come over in about 3 weeks and mow. That way it won't be over the house when I get home.
I want to thank Robin again for the lovely Mother's Day package I received today. Everything is lovely, well not the Chick-o-Sticks~they are yummy!
That's all for now, so until next time..........Linda
