Finishing Strong

Anna is still in Austin. Coffee shops and western stores.
She sent us her final grades for spring semester: straight A's. Dean's List. Cum Laude. Her final grade point average at UGA: 3.73. Well done.

On the way home yesterday I stopped by the visitation for Rose Johnson. Talked to both Jennifer and Kenneth. Jerome was there. Kenneth was talking about a basketball team Jerome had coached, after Mighty Mites, maybe when he was twelve. In the 80’s. Lang and John Flack were on the team. Kenneth remembered how Jerome would make them run before practice, then practice full court scrimmages, then run laps again after practice. The team went undefeated.
Also talked to Ron and Julianne Watts, Deborah Light Painter, and Ivy Anderson. Saw Joe and Anita Giradeau but didn’t get to say hello. Also the son of Mrs. Hunkin.  
Ceil cooked a black eyed pea dish that also had carrots in it. Over rice. Also tossed salad. Later M went to Whole Foods. Another hilarious episode of The Kids are Alright. Also the NBA Draft Lottery show. Some Golden State. Some Braves.
I’ll have to check out the Park Over 400 project again. 
Last week bees invaded the Reds field. No one remembered the times this happened back in the 70's next door at Riverfront Stadium.
 Meanwhile in San Diego: more bees?
Maybe Oprah had something to do with it.
More photos surfaced of the famous scamper home
by young what's his name.

 Frenchy and Tiger.
Not sure how much you hear but it sounds like Leah’s Alzheimer’s is becoming more advanced, requiring assistance to do most things. She is growing increasingly foggy on relationships with family.
