As most Mondays, we went to Stephan and Karen's that evening, just as the sun was setting, and enjoyed another good meal.
A practice piece still stood out in the yard. The competition car won a second place a couple weeks ago.
Tuesday was a day of errands and visits, among them to my friend and co-in-law, just out of the hospital after a heart procedure.
Wednesdays we often eat with other seniors at the Lion's Club. It's fun to slowly get to know each one's story. For some 25 years this lady has been training dogs to serve as guides to the blind. Some have ended up in other countries, in fact one of them lives in the Basque Country now. Hmmm, I wonder if it had to learn Basque commands?
Later that afternoon I had a special visitor!
Can't you just see her becoming a ballerina like the little ones her mom teaches?
Thursday bright and early Stephan and Mike flew out of Indianapolis and arrived safely in Fairbanks, Alaska much later that day after three flights.
Friday was a day to get set up on their site, make acquaintances or meet old ones, and admire the Single Block pieces.

Today, Saturday, I stopped by Leah's and was impressed with all her new arrangements and decor.
A little bit of paint gives a snazzy new look to some old boots.
Mike is missing the first robotics competition of the season, but probably has no time to think about it as their first of six days of ice carving comes to an end.
Watch the team at work on icealaska.com. It's snowing there. Here too.
