Back so soon . . .

Tonight was the celebration of the 100th year of Phi Alpha Delta, Gene's law fraternity. It was held at the InterContinental Hotel on Michigan Avenue. Cocktails, short welcoming speeches, salad, some awards and acknowledgments, chicken, some sort of soufflé, veggies, more awards, Gene (and our friend Garnet Fay) get acknowledged for their work with PAD, chocolate mousse, coffee, thanks and good-byes. In by 6, out by 10, not bad.

My How Time Flies....

It has been a while since last I posted.

Things continue to continue. I won't try to play catch-up, but will try to stay current.

Okay, here's a little recent history.

New Year's Eve was a Greek Fest and Games at Abe's. It was both tasty and fun.

It is Chicago and it is winter. It is cold and there is snow. No big deal, nothing like the east coast or even northern Indiana.

I continue to knit and to make jewelry, even knit some jewelry. I participated in a Christmas bazaar and sold several items.

Gene is still busy being a lawyer. He is well and thriving.

Our house is much quieter now that Squerky, our Nanday Conure, died. It is interesting that you can get so attached to an unfriendly, neurotic, feather-challenged bird.
