My friend Kathy and I always have the soup and salad combo at the Olive Garden...but really, I go for the breadsticks!

Packed my little basket of goodies (an Italian meal) to take to a friend who is going through chemotherapy.  This is pesto lasagna, garlic bread, salad, home-made dressing, store-bought gelato and biscotti.

It's good to do your civic duty.  It's better when the jury panel you have been called to join is excused because of some glitch with the trial.  Free now for at least a year!

Guess there's no getting out of it.  I called the courthouse and yes, they still want me in the morning.  They never call you on dull weeks!  I have three things planned for this week, which pretty much assures I'll be chosen for a jury.

Took my mother to the doctor today.  Fortunately an easily treatable problem, but it was good I got her there early, the doctor says.

This picture was taken on my mother's 90th birthday, 2 years ago.  Today her stepson, Fred Jr. (circled) died. It is a big loss for his children and his brother and sister.

I decided to take this picture today, so I can look at it in a year and see if the price looks high...or me!
