My life in pictures – Friday April 4, 2008


210 214  

The youth girls suprised me and threw a birthday party for me.  I was so touched.  Sheanise, who was the master-mind, said “You’ve lived here for four years, and I never really did anything for you”.  The did a good job pulling it off, too, with the help of Norma (she co-teaches their class with me) and Janell and Teresa.  It was a fun evening of remembering by-gone days.  Sheanise had everyone share a best and worst memory.  Her best memory with me, was going to sing for her mom at the hospital with two other people (her mom is no longer living).  It was neat to hear what all they remembered, cause some of the stuff I had forgotten about.  Like the time Tiffany and I made the crazy decision to shop in Center City in the rain.  We decided never to do that again.  So many memories with these girls.  They were 6th graders when I got to know them, and now they’re headed off to college this fall.  Sniff, sniff.  My girls are to little. 

 034 031 024 022   Youth nite last month.  Dan & Marty were in charge.  They watched the “Jesus Film”  (while I hung out with my sister who was down for the weekend) and then we made funnel cakes.

We went to the cabin, we girls.  It as our last girl thing before Rose and I get married.  It wasn’t the last girl thing, though.  Lesh has made it clear that we still will do our “girl thing” even if we’re married.  And there’s no way, I’d want to give them up.  We’ve had so many good times together.


Michele was down Easter weekend and we went into center city and M took a bunch of pictures.  Yes, this is us standing in the middle of the Ben Franklin Parkway.  We fit right in with all the other crazy people out there.  It was St Patricks weekend and there were some crazy street parties going on.

Duane got to see what the “real” Lucy is like when she’s with her like-spirited sister.  We were acting so crazy.  I think it was my idea to take a picture with the “stop here on red” sign.  I thought it was so creative.  Duane was very long-suffering that day and had to put up with a lot of craziness.  Actually, he had his video camera along, so he was able to ignore us most of the time.  My sister brings out the craziness in me.  Michelle, and everyone else, tries to blame me for it.  But I think it’s just the combination of us. 

 IMG_7848 I think my sister is a very talented photographer.  Isn’t this. .  . Umm, I can’t think how to describe this.  Maybe charming. 

032 And here she is, this crazy sister of mine.  Don’t ask me what the beaming object is on the front of her jacket.  It’s there to distract you from my cheeziness.

Good day.
