A sad start for the month of April. We mourn the loss of a North Cedar student, just 17. We are praying for the recovery of his friend also in the accident. Maquoketa lost 2 young people in a car accident. We attended Leona Conrad's funeral yesterday. It was a nice service honoring Leona and celebrating her life.
Since the sun is shining this morning and the wind isn't blowing too hard, I hung out 2 loads of laundry. I love to see and hear the bed sheets flopping on the line. I think they will smell really good on the bed tonight.
Sunday was practice day at the Tipton race track. Ben and Bill went down to try to work some of the bugs out of the car--Ben has a lot to learn and the first race Friday night will be interesting! Ben took us and a friend along to Riverside for a race car show Saturday. I spent the day inside the casino (it was too cold outside)!
Friday night was the Legion fish fry. We served close to 300 people, ran out of fish, coleslaw, rolls, and baked potatoes so all I had to eat was a few almost cold french fries. One more fish fry the first Friday in May, all proceeds will go to the Honor Flight.
Emily is ELEVEN!!!
