It's coming. Finally we are seeing leaves on the small bushes. What a joy to start to see green again. Don mowed the lawn for the first time yesterday and it looks so nice to see the dandelions gone and the carpet of green.
My friend Bonnie and I went over to Staples to get her invitations done but unfortunately the way she wanted didn't work out. I tried to do them on a program on my iPad but was unsuccessful too so I needed to bring them back home and work on them in Photoshop. I hate days when things don't work out as expected.

I just looked at my blog and realized I haven’t blogged since Monday. This has been a busy week for me. On Tuesday I went to my friend Bonnie’s house to help her with invitations for her 50th wedding anniversary party. Then yesterday I spent some time getting a new iphone and learning how to use it. The time has just gone by so fast this week so I apologize for not showing up on time. It seems things are piling up and I had too many irons in the fire. I’ll get a handle on it soon. The pictures in the last post are just some that I am going to try to use for the invitations.

Yesterday Don was out of town all day so I had the house to myself. I spent most of the day working on making my blog into a book for the year 2014. I received my 2015 book in the mail and was so pleased using Bookemon. The book was of high quality, the pictures amazing and the text large and readable.
Sadie and I went for a short walk. She still is having problems with her back legs and her joints still swell when we try to reduce her medication. She does enjoy a walk but we can't go very far or very fast. It was so nice to be outside and enjoy the warm weather.
In the evening I went out to dinner with my friends. It was an enjoyable time and we sat and talked a long time after dinner. I came home and watched the first episode of Orphan Black.

Does your town have a local character? Or is it just small towns that have one personality that stands out? This is Elvis …or sometimes Batman…or sometimes just a guy in a long black coat. He stands at the corner by Pizza Hut with a guitar, a headset and a speaker and strums away and sings. His name is Charlie. As you are driving by you can see his enthusiasm but yet can’t really hear his singing. I’ve really never heard his music to know if he is good or not. He is out there entertaining the road in his costume in all seasons.
A few years ago we lost our most famous town character. Her name was Hollywood Helen. She was over seventy but had the nicest legs and was willing to show them off with shorts or short skirts. She even had a nylon jacket with her name on the back. Hollywood would go to the local bars and dance up a storm. She stopped in every business on Main Street and said hello. She was very friendly and lived in a delusional world. She told a fictional story so well you would swear it really happened to her. She would put in the paper that she was going to Las Vegas to entertain with Englebert Humperdink. She was harmless and brought a smile to everyone’s face. At any event going on you couldn’t miss her. She would be front and center gaining all the attention with her long blonde ponytail. Our town misses her.
