in a knot because I look good as a Franciscan, so I run this

Today Chris invited Sassy and me for a walk around the cul-de-sac. She has more energy now than the year before her cancer surgery.
We had a great time Saturday with LI's family, when our oldest grandchild graduated from the community college, with plans to finish at - Woooooooooo, Pig ! Sooie! Razorbacks! - the U. of Arkansas. That cheer is often used at Walmart meetings and is carefully reproduced all over town.
Next week is the younger daughter's graduation from high school. There will be a family dinner at a restaurant, so we suggested Sonic's where both granddaughters work. They get along great, which is why the older girl, an assistant manager, hired her sister.
Mother's Day Roses
I got up early to cut roses for each home on our block. The mother of four daughters got four Easy Does It roses. The two brothers got pink roses for their mother's grave. And so on. Tonight, one of the four daughters brought over a long-stemmed red rose for Chris and mowed our lawn.
Simply giving roses away has brought the block closer. Our little street is Hispanic, Laotian, and Caucasian, all on one block. But everyone loves roses.
We had a few extras, which I planned for our police officer, wife, and baby a block away. Another set went to Sassy's good friends, John and his wife Pat.
Yes, we had a bunch of Easy Does It orange roses for the altar, and one perfect Queen Elizabeth for the bud vase.
