Saw Dr. Cayetano Barrera, who is to be complimented for his very calm demeanor. Probably not a coincidence that his nurse Edna has the same quality . . .

Had a nice long visit with Mary Cozad-Chauncey at Oh Kay’s, and met her beautiful daughter Cynthia, whom I hadn’t seen in years. So yes, I met her again . . .

Saw Steve Deck and met his wife Amy, whose name I can surely remember! Steve and I have some children the same age . . .

Also ran into Cecilia Shapiro, though we must quit meeting like that . . .

For those of you with young children, I have just purchased The Very Fairy Princess book, by Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton — an excellent gift for granddaughters with princess aspirations . . .

Had a fun conversation with Rosie Wilkinson about boxes, and have had many closet conversations with many ladies. (right, men could care less) Becoming enamored of your closet is a good thing, but it makes you want to redo every closet in the house, aka “painting one wall”. . .

Have seen many neighbors out biking and walking lately, such as Bob McClure and Peggy Nix. People are trying to go early to lessen the heat, and our fair city seems to have addressed the mosquito problem for now . . .

Here’s to trees and to Lillian Martinez, STC student and Biology Club President. I appreciate the article she wrote about trees providing shade and saving us $$$. Just remember, if our trees shed, so do our favorite pets. We can vacuum/rake and be grateful!

And while I’m at it, here’s to husbands who love to cook. We wives really appreciate the culinary skills . . .
