We?ve had a week without our head cook, but our own inexperienced help pitched in.

A staff member from the Area Agency in Manhattan came to cook two days, Vickie Kaempfe came in once, the Hillsboro Senior Center cooked us a meal that Sue Clough picked up, and we have a cookout planned. It?s been a learning experience for us all.

My birthday was April 7 and I brought treats for the celebration.
