Some more exciting things

I usually don't post real life because mine is dull but a few things have been happening. First I went to a woman's gathering in Appleton before Melli came. The speaker was a former pastor in Marguette, near Crystal Falls where we were living before. She is retired and went to Israel first as a visitor and then she found this village where everything was done as in Jesus time. She became a tour guide.
Next Melli came and you have read both Melli and John's account. It sure was fun and we laughed so much, and I got out to do so much more than I would on my own.
I have coming up some events. My youngest grandson is having a birthday today. I think we will celebrate on Sunday when we go to the Brewers game in Milwaukee. Dr John is not going, because our seats are way up at the top and I don't think he can make it. He is not too much into baseball anyway, but I know he would like to see the kids. Pennie is greeting on Sunday. How long we can stay at the service is a question.
On Friday there is the fund raising tea at St Marks. That should be fun. Pennie got a very cute tea pot in bright colors. We buy a table for twenty-five dollars and decorate it with linen and things and provide a dessert for the guests we invite.
Oh I should have my grass cut for the first time. My tomato seeds came they are in preplanted pots. We bought one of those bags where the plants grow upside down. This is going to be another adventure because I have not been able to grow plants from seeds. I have never grown tomatoes before.

We are llooking forward to the Brewer game. Glad you had a good time with Melli...she seemed like someone who likes to get out and do things which is good for those of us who don't.
