When the rain came, we sang & danced

Even though it was rained out we managed to have a little fun at the Li’l Stone Music House where we sang, danced and ate well.    Thanks to Jesse Basque, Salvatore Pace and especially Cat Connor who had stretched her voice to the limit the night before at Karaoke and still gave us her all.   It sure was fun.

Glen Burke was so moved by the oldies he hoisted himself from his walker + oxygen to dance with Janet.  We all love our “Old TV man” (Glen ran Burke’s TV for 50 years).

Check out the music & dancing here!

Getting the canvas ready for the parade

 

Thursday May 1st
On Sat. (May 3rd) the “V” will be in the parade which runs down 8th St. starting at 10 a.m.
Noemi and Fernanda, Ian and the PH team helped paint the mural that Noemi sketched two days prior.  What a talented young lady we have on our team. Tomorrow we’ll finish painting and then figure out how to attach it to the “V”.   
Friday May 2nd
We worked on the canvas until 11 pm so we could drop the canvas down the side of the RV.   Pvt Manning/Wiki will be taking a back seat to Pueblo House this weekend. It came out great with a rainbow like no other!
Kids in the neighborhood came eagerly to help put a face on the “V” and up date the worn out posters. Armed with a box of crayons, an egg carton and some construction paper they brought their vision to life. The twins were missing Stephanie (our PH artist now in Denver) and that’s where the message on the back of the “V” is dedicated to her. Chelsey shows off her award for 1st prize at school. Then they wanted to see the canvas so we visited the music & art house where the canvas has been a “work in progress” for 3 days. Thanks to Noemi Morales we have a beautiful work of art to display during the parade on Sat.

 

Power finally comes to the people!

Joe and I put the sod down yesterday (thank you to Big R for donating half of it) and when we ran out I purchased more which Big R so graciously delivered again this morning, so we were able to finished.   With Ellis here helping the past couple weeks we were able to get the yard ready for soil, a fence fixed and the basement organized. He left yesterday after helping unload the sod. We wish him well and thank him for his contribution while here at Pueblo House.

It took a run down to Black Hills office this morning to ensure we got our power. Now Ray is outside hooking us up to real live power, putting the meter as I type this ….yea!

Glen came to visit us yesterday and I was so thrilled to see his car behind the RV just like old times. Clyde is back and so there is a very happy Bonnie right now. Even Paul (the gardener from next door) was happy to see Glen and commented on how well he’s doing after his stroke.   Our good friends Elaine and Maggie dropped by as well so it was quite a gathering around the kitchen table with lively discussion.

Joe got the new greenhouse put together and ready for our seedlings. Just have to move the potty behind the house to free up the best location, so it’s not going to blow away!

Kayla is diggn’ her new crib and today made herself a hole in which she can lays and stay cool. She loves being out front where she can watch Joe in the garden. The neighbors have a beautiful lilac bush in bloom which is complementing our new sod. Now that we have power, we no longer have to worry about the electric box being stolen. We’re planning another outdoor concert on May 17th. Hope to see everyone out for a sing along. (Janet)
