Uncle Frankie can't show up for Easter because he's visiting Fran. I shall have to get his mail for the next few days. This evening's Mass at O. L. Sorrows begins this year's Paschal Triduum. Fr. McKernan has asked me to get my feet washed. It's the first time I've ever done that. His sister is visiting him from Long Island for Easter. Mary Anne, Steve & the kids will be coming in soon. Of course all the liberal troublemakers are coming out of everyplace insisting we refer to it as just another holiday, as if any other holiday counts. There's not such a lot of shopping to do for Easter. I've always really enjoyed the beauty of all the decorations, nice clothes & flowers. The only disadvantage is that it's entirely too fattening. Because of my not having gotten a haircut in quite a while I got one this morning, after morning prayer at O. L. Sorrows, at Rose Chairge's in West Pittston. Yet again it was a little hard for me to find her place because her husband has changed locations. He got rid of the Batman logo & that was my only way of finding it. After a few extra minutes of going crazy I got there. She knows Michelle & Gino so I found out from her what they've been up to lately. Spring is here but the weather is often still too cold. Dave is always going through the neighborhood looking for things to do. He cuts people's grass, trims bushes, etc. in the warm weather. There's still no word from Frank about my odometer. Gas prices are still going up & it's gotten plum out of control.
