A baby shower for my niece Holly Boor
On Sunday, June 3, a baby shower was held at the Rush Country Club for my niece, Holly Boor. Holly is a teacher in Pittsford, and is expecting her baby in a few short weeks.
The Rush Country Club is a very beautiful place and the food was exceptional There were approximately 50 people at the party and Holly received many beautiful gifts.
Many little girls came to the shower and helped bring the gifts to Holly, I think it is a great idea to expose little girls to wonderful occasions like this. The weather was terrible,: It rained just about all day but that didn’t hamper the festivities. It was great to see Diane Terry, Holly’s aunt, who traveled from Florida to attend the shower.
Of course, this was my first outing (in 30 days) since I was totally incapacitated with my hand injury, hand injury, suffered as a result of a rose bush thorn.
Having had five children, I am well acquainted with pain but I must say this is the most pain I have ever suffered, and for the longest time. My daughter, Janice brought me to the emergency at Noyes, and am most grateful to my doctor, Dr. Richard Aguirre, who saw me three times and, without whose help, I am not sure I would have survived.
As I usually do, when I am experiencing an injury or illness, I take out my blue folder. It contains my will. When my daughters came by to assist me and saw the blue folder, on my table, they said, “Oh no, not again- put that folder away!”
However, this time, I was thinking that, perhaps, my will would surely be enforced. I was assisted by my daughters, Julie and Janice and my niece, Rose.
Julie and Rose, each spent the night with me. And a friend Becky, who is a nurse, also spent the night with me. (I still have the blue folder in plain sight, just in case!!).
Congratulations to Monk and Marge Harris who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this past Sunday. This has been (and still is) a happy marriage. I have known Monk and Marge for a long time-they are a great couple.
Our annual Memorial Day Parade took place in Leicester. Although, I didn’t attend, my daughter, Julie told me about it. The York Central School band played and the parade has sort of dwindled down as our veterans are aging and many no longer walk that long distance, up the hill, to the Leicester Cemetery.
This column serves to advise my shut-ins (to whom I administer communion) that I will, sometime soon be able to give them communion again. They were all advised that I was unable to do this. I will be glad to, once again attend church.
My friend, and neighbor, Doug Seeber, has been mowing my lawn, while my lawn mower is being repaired. My niece and nephew, Jessica and Cody came by and took care of all the weed-eating that had to be done. They also planted some flowers for me. My flowers are all beginning to bloom. I was given a flowering bush, a butterfly bush, by my niece, Jackie Schlagater, and that is also beginning to bloom.
All of the homes, on South Street, In Leicester, really look lovely. The lawns are really manicured and many have just had their driveways blacktopped, and all of their flowers are in bloom. I am happy to live on South Street.
The little coffee shop (the former depot) “Gatherings” is doing a fine business. My daughter told me that, when she drives by, there are many cars parked there. I am glad that their business is thriving. I am looking forward to visiting soon.
