Bits and Pieces
Sitting working on newsletters and saw the VP8 Alumni "can covers/holders" that Dick Scotti had made up for the May reunion. I forgot to thank him in the last newsletter. We certainly did appreciate it, Dick. * Sure was hard getting back into the swing of things after that great reunion.
We had a wonderful time visiting with the Stewarts on the way up, Michaud on the way back, and family in between. Came home with the car totally packed. Had a large cedar chest that was my step-mother's in the back along with everything else we had picked up. Took forever to unload the car and get things put away. Needed a vacation. * Then it was blueberry pickin' time. Didn't think there would be so many, but I picked in the morning and evening until I was tired of looking at berries and felt like I was turning into one. Made blueberry/apple juice for the freezer, one pie, couple batches of muffins. Gave lots away and restocked the freezer. We had planted some green beans before we left, so that was the next item on my list. Now we are getting an overabundance of squash, eggplant, peppers, cucumbers and some "butter" beans. Keeps us busy. Some decent tomatoes, finally! You wait and wait for the good fresh veggies to come in and then wish they'd go away.
All of these people dropped their membership at the beginning of 2008. If you know any of them, please give them a call and see why.
Bleynat, Childres, Cox, Curtis, Graves, Grue, Hawkins, Hindel, Jacobsen, Koon, Kremin, Liebenow (we know he has moved), Nelson, Pontillo, Wisnack. Reminders were sent out, but we had no feedback.
Asked Beth about the November Florida picnic. She wasn't sure she should schedule it, but decided that we should go ahead and have it, even if the price of gas is high. So if you can make it, be there at the Juniper Springs Recreation Center on Hwy. 40 west of Ocala on Saturday, November 15. This might be advance enough notice so that you can get a motel if you need to. It's always a fun time, and if we can swing it, this championship horseshoe pitcher will make it also. I have made reservations in Lake City and we'll most likely be there.
BLUE ANGELS: Last air show at Brunswick will be the weekend of Sept 6/7.
