Uncle Frankie's been recuperating fairly well so far. He's been out of the hospital for a couple of days. Sam has been doing quite a good job painting the kitchen. The smell isn't too intense but it gets annoying after a while. Steve's supposed to come in today to pick him up. My monthly Carmelite meeting, on South Meade Street in Wilkes_Barre, was this morning. It's at the Little Flower Manor each month. Including me there were seven people who attended. Unfortunately there were a hearse & other limousines outside getting ready for a funeral cortege. In a place like that they always have to face up to deaths. I ended up not eating any meat yesterday because it was a Friday. I was forced to eat quite a lot of salad, potatoes & crackers. Lately I've been drinking tea more frequently. I used to drink it quite regularly & I've been renewing my old habit. Yesterday I went to Wal_Mart on Oak Street in Pittston to get a a GPS mount for my car. The salesman I met in the electronics department suggested I go to the automotive department to see a wider selection. It was a good thing I took him up on it because by going there I saved ten dollars.

Today is Yoko Ono's seventy_seventh birthday. Beatle John would have turned seventy in October of this year. Sam started painting yesterday. He's been doing quite well so far. My father took Uncle Frankie to the hospital & things got out of hand for a while but everything eventually worked out. I went out to get pizza at Sizzle Pie. Unfortunately Sam doesn't like onions & they always put onions on pizza. Because it was Ash Wednesday there was no meat on the menu. On the way home I stopped at the Turkey Hill gas station next door. I ended up driving Uncle Frankie home in my father's car through quite an annoying snowstorm. Tonight I shall be going to O.L. Mt. Carmel for a meeting.

Yet another snowstorm has come upon us. It started last night. Although it hasn't gotten out of hand so far, it's still getting everyone crazy. My nephew Sam, from New York, is supposed to come in on a bus on Thursday. I should hope he at least gets a break. Uncle Frankie's back in commission. He showed up for a while yesterday. He & my parents went shopping for the paint Sam will need. On Saturday I was supposed to lector at 5:00 Mass but Cheryl ended up covering for me. Today is Mardi Gras. Traditionally it's the day before Ash Wednesday each year. I'm still practicing my guitar. I've been using a guitar book I have that covers all the technical details quite well.
