Catching up

I checked to see when I last updated this blog. It was May 12, and today is June 2. So I have a couple of weeks to catch up on.

On May 17, I had to miss the HAT meeting. We were on the road coming back from Springfield, MO.

On May 18, a Sunday, we held our monthly discussion based on Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States . We take a chapter a month. The chapter we discussed was 17. Much of the time period was in the 20th century -- times that I lived thru. The next chapter is on the war in Vietman.

On Wednesday the 21st we went to a meeting of OK Votes. This is an effort to turn out the vote organized by Democrats. The meeting was held in the historic Campbell Hotel along Route 66 in Tulsa. Inside the Campbell Hotel is Maxxwell's Restaurant. That is where we dined that evening.

On Saturday the 24th we had our monthly Food and Fellowship gathering. This month we met at Cardigan's on S. Lewis. Most everyone had the crabcakes.

The next day was Sunday. At church we had the dedication of the canvas labyrinth. It is about 20 feet in diameter. We have the objective of building a permanent labyrinth on the church lawn. Rev. Debra Garfinkel is leading the effort to get the labyrinth built. I have been walking labyrinths for 15 years or so.

Also at Church of the Restoration, we have switched to having breakfast instead of lunch on Sundays. Last Sunday Gail and I played "Gladiolas Rag" by Scott Joplin. Marilyn Clarke was the speaker. She spoke about the Tulsa Sponsoring Committee.

Next month Gail and I plan to play "America," from West Side Story.
