ON THE BACK BURNER

Sept. 30

Before we bought our house in Evanston, we rented an apartment just a block from the Northwestern campus. I was reminded of that last night when I saw this beautiful  moon. That moon represented home coming for the kids at school. College football was important to the school and  to Evanston. All those deep pocket out of town parents staying at local hotels and eating at local restaurants was much appreciated. But to our family, it was the floats. The college clubs, sororities, fraternities,and teams , all had decorated floats. I don’t remember their throwing goodies at us like they do at Mardi Gras, but it was real excitement for our young kids.Funny,that I hadn’t thought about those home coming parades in years. Must be the moonbeams.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
