We have more snow -- up to 3", I think. Enough to have to shovel.
This aft. Dale went to Jamestown. I asked him if he was going to Sam's Club and if he did would he get me pecans & toilet tissue. The pecans are 7.29 for 2 lbs & around 12.00 for 30 rolls of .T. T. -- the good brand that is soft.
Yesterday Kim was at school til after 10 pm. Reason: school dance from 7-10 pm. After school they had to decorate & foolish to drive home & have to turn around practically right away. After 10 pm they'd have to clean up decorations, etc. & she hoped to be home by 11 pm. She didn't come over today. I'm sure they went skiing with the new cover of snow.
Fri nite Lar & Mike went out to eat. Then Lar walked Torey with Torey leading the way. They went to Jackson, over Buchanan & Lar decided to shovel Cary's walk. I heard Torey barking & called to him & in he came. Lar came when he finished. Torey got fed & then he settled down. I was working on my puzzle -- it's a hard one but the end is in sight -- & Lar sat down & watched TV. Torey wasn't in any hurry to leave so Lar stayed awhile.
Barb & I went to the mall late morning. Went to Penney's & everything is 25% off & I found a spring jacket I like so I bo't it.
I'm proud of Andy doing so well in his studies. Isn't it nice to have a son who applies himself to his studies, Paul!!! I remember someone who could have but didn't, but you still turned out to be a good guy & I'm proud of you. You certainly are doing well in your career.
I'm watching the All Star Hockey doings tonite. Sun. is the All Star Game. It's fun to watch & see the All Stars introduced. Skill competition tonite.
Dale & I had hamburgers for supper -- Barb made herself a steak salad.
Finally, I finished my puzzle with 2 pieces missing. [Found 1 on the floor.] An old puzzle as we save them -- when I vacuumed on Wed. I heard one eaten up by the vacuum cleaner & I thought I had checked thoroly.
Back to hockey -- North American All Stars vs. the World All Stars. N. Amer. All Stars won the skill contest.
Sun. Feb 4th
In church today the Bishop's assistant preached & it was nice to hear a good sermon and one using the text for the day.
After church I was talking to Patty Welsh Phillips & she said she is now retired. Her husband has been retired for 2 years & they have plans to travel, etc., so she left her job. She was secretary to a lawyer. She isn't that much older than you is she, Paul? I know she isn't ready for Soc. Security.
Today I watched the Hockey All Star game & it was so good. The N. Americans beat the World All Stars. I think the score was 14-11 & that is a big score. I didn't watch the football All Stars and I saw the end of the golf. Tiger Woods hasn't done too well so far.
Your telephone call gave me something to think about pro & con. No answers for while. It's a long trip.
Started reading again -- got 2 books at the library last Fri. Our governor is giving more money -- statewide -- to the libraries.
Karen S. Setili's son is very different. Very smart in studies. I feel sorry for him -- he has been too much of a mama's boy. The daughter who is in her first year of college, is different but no like Evan.
One of Dale's friend's mother died a year ago & the father died this last week. He was 65 & his wife was in the early 60's. He had sugar. Tough to lose both parents in a years time. The grandmother was a member of St. Paul & she lived to an old age. After her husband died she came back to Warren so I don't think you knew her Paul, She was Helen Leonard.
Tues A.M. Want to get this mailed -- it's grocery day.
