Entry for August 13, 2006

Fidel’s 80th today.  Matt Wuerker’s 8-11 cartoon says it all. 

This morning Katrina, Marshall and Richard came over for waffles.   

Thanks to an invitation from Paula, whom I know from contra dancing, this evening I attended a potluck and international folk dancing at Lillys.  What a treasure.  She says the dancing keeps her going at age 88, despite three heart bypasses, a stroke, diabetes, a broken hip.  She was a basketball star in high school and still glows with pride when she tells you.  By a coincidence of geography she came here from Delaware, as did another guest, Sandy.   Lilly knew knew Sandy while she was still in a playpen.  And I had lived next door to Sandy on Hearthstone Drive in Blacksburg 25 years ago.
