Jo and her kids succeeded in throwing a party in Roger’s honor! I want a party just like his! When I got to Waucoma I drove around and enjoyed the little town. I found the Community Center next to the library and parked along the street. I waited and waited and finally went into the library and asked about the party.
Haha! The party was being held at the EVENTS Center west of town. WOW! How does a little town have such a wonderful, huge facility? The fire trucks were pulling in and parking right in front and people were getting out of their cars by the dozens! I joined the crowd and walked into a HUGE room with people and kids milling around looking at pictures and momentos from the Kramer family. I saw Kayla first and then Jo found me and it was so good to see her!
Then I met Jo’s best friend, Connie, from Reads Landing, MN. Soon another quilter, Debbie from Oelwein , joined us and we chatted over a delicious meal.
Connie, me, Debbie.
We’re all hoping to meet in Rochester next Thursday at Minnesota Quilt Show – and as many others who can make it.
I thought this large poster of Roger was so impressive!
And the funeral home printed these placemats which I thought were so great I brought mine home to show our local funeral director.
Oh my but it was a wonderful party!
I think Roger would approve.
On my drive to Waucoma I did stop at a couple thrift stores and other than books, I “rented” this framed piece of a hooked scene. It was $3.00 and I’ll enjoy it in my entry for awhile and then return it.
Here’s a closeup.
And this for $1.00 that I will send to Jenny but I don’t know what it is. Reminds me of the Big Bang Theory and the wedding gift that nobody could understand. She’ll wonder what it is, too when she gets it in the mail.
And then it comes apart.
I can’t wait for somebody to explain it to me!
I am watching “When They See Us” on Netflix. I remember when this attack took place in Central Park in 1989 and honestly, it’s so disturbing, I can hardly believe it really happened but I know it did!
I have a book giveaway today – it’s Lynne Hagmeier’s newest book called Prairie Life, a collection of quilts, runners and pillows!
Close an ad and leave a comment and Reed will draw someone’s name tomorrow. I will post the winner’s name on the next post and ask for her mailing address. I also have two small quilt finishes that I’ll post tonight or tomorrow morning. We have a funeral at our church tomorrow morning – Elaine was 90 years old and still living at home – I want to be like Elaine! And then have a party like a Roger’s!
