Cedric and Loretta took me to the hospital in McHenry to visit a veteran friend. We stopped by Eastgate to see some residents after their dinner. Debbie and I saw our friends at Crystal Pines on Saturday. I greeted at church Sunday morning. We took flowers to the cemetery on Monday. There we met a lady who knew me from my Butter Reports. Tuesday after T'ai Chi I stayed with Lynne in the office. I got to see my friend who brings the mail (and treats!).
