Today has been a busy one. Late this afternoon there was a memorial service at CARE for a man who lived in the neighborhood. Nearly everyone knew and loved him. I didn’t know him but I had met his wife. The retired minister who conducted the service asked me to play the piano and I was relieved that I knew all the hymns that the widow had chosen.

Tonight there was a totally different kind of activity. We had a St. Patrick’s Day party in the dining room. It was a lot of fun, as usual. Brian Brandenburg is an excellent party planner and we’re lucky to have him as a resident here. First, we had an old-fashioned trivia quiz. Then Brian told funny stories and did a hilarious skit as an Irishman. We also had a few games of Charades and Pictionary and some music, including a sing-along of well-known Irish songs. Carl Perry played “Danny Boy” on a Native American flute and Randy Lagman, husband of one of the volunteers, played four pieces on his bagpipes. He even dressed the part in his tartan kilt, hat and boots.
