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.
I see that the Dari-Ville in Lansing is closed. I never went to that establishment, but I have driven by on many occasions. I notice it because there was so often a large number of people waiting to be served. Seems like they did good business.
As I am writing this, I am contemplating turning on the furnace for a minute or two, though being the thrifty soul that I am, I probably won’t.
Kelvin caught me outside reading on my lawn chair along side the house. Older retired guys do things like that. And younger guys like Kelvin (around 12) sometimes hustle older guys for jobs. Kelvin comes around because earlier this year, I succumbed to his sales pitch which was him simply as…
A couple of signs of early August in Calumet City caught my attention recently.
Have you ever had this experience?
Summer used to be my leisure season. No school, catch up on some house upkeep in a leisurely kind of way, read a lot. But not so much since my retirement from full-time teaching. And there’s one word to explain that change in my summertime situation — VictorFest.
When I was teaching full time, I used to have a standard response to people who would ask if I was going to teach summer school. I’d say without hesitation that the words “summer’” and “school” don’t belong in the same sentence.
