This is a picture I had to draw for AMEX. It was an Audubon project. Makes me think about spring!


Having a blast babysitting!




Let's face it, sometimes we need a little help in the romance department. Well, the Lofte Community Theatre in Manley has taken steps to create an enjoyable evening for singles, sweethearts and even old married folks!

On Saturday, February 13th, the Lofte is holding a special Sweetheart Event to celebrate Valentine's Day. The doors will open at 6:30pm. Wine tastings will be provided by Slattery Vintage Estates
of Nehawka. You can purchase a tasting, a glass, or buy a bottle of your favorite to share with friends! A variety of delicious hors d'oeuvres will be on-hand and later, the instrumental group, "Skylark" will take the stage. New this year, Krambeck Photography will be present for professional photo opportunities. Wine, appetizers, dancing, photo opps; the only ingredients missing are you and your date!

Tickets to this event are $20 per person. Due to liquor license requirements, wine tastings will be priced separately at the door. Advanced reservations are not required, but are strongly suggested. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call the Lofte Box Office at (402) 234-2553. You may also visit their website www.Lofte.com.

The Old Avoca (Nebraska) Schoolhouse will celebrate the seventeenth annual Play-the-Recorder Month in March by offering a Beginning Recorder Workshop on Saturday, March 13, from 1 PM - 3 PM. Deborah Greenblatt, Master Artist with the Nebraska Arts Council, and member of the American Recorder Society, will lead the workshop. Pre-registration is required, and enrollment is limited. The $30.00 fee includes an instruction book, and a soprano recorder. Pre-registration is required, and enrollment is limited. For more information, call 402-275-3221, or send an e-mail to debby@greenblattandseay.com.
Founded in 1939, the American Recorder Society is celebrating 70 years of service to its members and constituents--all recorder players including amateurs to leading professionals, students to teachers. It has some 130 chapters and consorts in the U.S. and Canada, where its membership base is over 2200, plus 130 members in 28 other countries.

Play-the-Recorder Month grew out of an event staged as part of an "ARS 50" anniversary celebration, during which members all over the world played a recorder piece simultaneously on April 1, 1989. Play-the-Recorder Day was first officially held in 1992, and then expanded to Play-the-Recorder Month the following year.

Note From Mom:

A big thank you to Mark Hogue, our local John Henry Plumber, and Dan Spaulding, our city guy, for helping get our backed up sewer issue resolved! Things were getting pretty ripe at our house.  Whew!  Now that it's fixed Dan tells me I need to do the laundry but skip the dishes.  He even recommended going out for pizza before I start the laundry!  I like the way he thinks!  Thanks, guys!  You are the best!!!!!
