5/20..We got some much needed rain today and during the night time it rained real hard at times. Its so nice to see all the greenery now after our long winter months. Friday, Maggie Elkins invited me to come with her to an Estate Sale on Enosburg Mountain Road as she has been looking for a bureau for her Granddaughter Emma Roger and she found just about everything on her list of items needed. We had to make a couple of trips to pick up things, and the last items were brought to her home by a friend Dan Malloy. We had stopped on our way coming home/down West Hill and told Dan about the sale as he likes getting video’s and CD’s. He went and found so many other things as well. Everything was so reasonably priced and if you thought it was too much, they were willing to make a good deal with you, they wanted to get rid of it ALL.
Marsha Phillips has returned home after a two week tour of a life time with Friends of Friends. There were 24 people in the group that went to Morocco. They started at Casablanca and their English speaking tour guide took them to different sites like Fes, and Marrakech during their two weeks. They all found it very interesting to ride camels from one destinations and stayed in tents over night in the Sarhara Desert, the next morning they rode camels to their next place to have breakfast and spend the day browsing, most places they visited were smells of fresh breads and other foods. Marsha said everyone had such a wonderful time and everyone was so agreeable to do things and this made it even more special. Jay Heaton from Burlington came along; Nancy Brady planned this whole tour, and it was nice to meet new friends; many people in our group were musicians and our evenings were full of entertainment. Marsha will have many memories from all the pictures she took. It was fantastic!!!
5/19.. I got up early to watch the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. IT WAS JUST BEAUTIFUL!!! The look on their faces were so filled with LOVE. When Prince Harry lifted her veil it was a spectacular moment seeing how they glazed in each other’s eyes. I can only wish them many years of LOVE and HAPPINESS. They are so deserving.
5/19.. Cynthia Tardiff (mother) and Rose Donna (grandmother) hosted a BABY SHOWER for daughter/granddaughter Ashley and hubby Warren Hostetter of Randolph, Vt.

What a gorgeous Mother’s Day to get out and celebrate with our daughter’s Veronica and Penny, with granddaughter Samantha Royer and her children Jayden and Natalie (Shane was at a basketball game) and grandson Tyler Elkins and his son Exavier (Zavi) and a dear friend Ashley came up from Massachusetts. We all enjoyed lunch at the Pine Cone which was extremely busy. It was nice to see people out enjoying the nice sunshine. We haven’t seen Chee-wee Pronto for sometime and he was there with a friend that drives him around. I hope everyone got to have a wonderful day with their families.
5/8..The 500 Card Club met at the home of Lorraine Gillis in Enosburg; she had invited the ladies for lunch. Lorraine’s daughters Suzanne Berkson and Linda prepared the luncheon for their Mother. It was all so delicious and we all sincerely thank you for your kindness and hospitality. We were all ready to enjoy a little nap after such a wonderful lunch, but instead we got those cards mixed up and starting playing just before one. It was an afternoon with low hands for many, ending up with the high score was Denise Baker (3580), second high was Carmen Scott (3210) and most horses was a three way tie between Therese Begnoche, Sue Cherrier and Lorraine Gillis..High card was drawn by Therese. I do not remember the low score I know I was next to having it. There were afternoon snacks and punch to enjoy. Sue Cherrier will have the June meeting at her home at noon time.
