Well, the two great undertakings of my summer have passed.
Well, I’ve got that feeling again.
Friday is the Fourth of July.
Well, I went to my first Calumet City Chamber of Commerce luncheon/meeting last week. It was at the council chambers of City Hall. I was invited by Cal City’s economic development chief Brian Swanson.
Well, I didn’t know Mike Kosiara, but I knew about him. I have seen his teams play. And I knew through others who played and/or coached with him, that he was dedicated, worked hard, and gave much of himself to young men of Calumet City and Lansing (but mostly to Calumet City) through the gam…
Well, Calumet City was a lead story on a lot of local newscasts a few days back (not always a good thing). But this was for a rather unusual circumstance that turned out not to be as bad as it could have been.
Well, the Catholic Church has two new official heroes — the Church calls them saints.
Well, it’s spring ... I think, hope, pray.
Well, Dad’s in the hospital.
Snowmen outside George Grenchik's Calumet City home.
I went to a meeting a little while back.
I’ve never really been much of a gear head — you know, way into cars. I’ve been around for a long time, but I’ve only owned three new cars. I’ve had used ones and I tended to keep those a long time. I was a good friend of Terry Nelleman, of the former Terry’s Motors in Calumet City, but not …
Well I see that St. Florian Catholic School in Hegwisch is slated to be closed next school year by the Archdiocese of Chicago. That’s a shame.
Well, it’s gotten cold again.
Well, we’re barely into this new year. This is usually a time when folks think about people of the past year and look forward to the next. So will I.
Well, I went to River Oaks recently. Christmas shopping should be easy for me, just the wife and my father. And it should be even easier this year than most. That’s because we are getting a new basement floor, newly painted walls, and of course, sundry other items to compliment the “new” room.
Well, it happened again.
Well, with Halloween gone, we’ve passed the last commercial speed bump before the onslaught of advertising prep for the “big one” — Christmas, the season of Biblical spending. (That’s kind of ironic, no?)
I met up recently with some old friends from my earliest teaching days at St. Victor School in Calumet City. Tom Pietrasek, Sue Schmakel, Sister Therese Del Genio, and I taught together for several years in the early to mid 1970s.
