One of the joints was leaking so we went to Lauries yesterday. It was a quick fix but couldn't
talk anyone through it on the phone. I was going to do some weeding but was a little too warm
for me. Pa pulled some. Brought my scrapbook for Laurie to look at and I brought my quilt
embroidery to do there and en route. A quick stop at Heather and Shawns. Norman and
Charlotte had just left. Stopped at L&M in Hibbing and Pa got a pair of boots with a gift ctf.
Took out my embroidery but I must have left my hoop at Lauries. Pa suggested we turn around but I said no. We go right by the new Super Walmart in Grand Rapids so I suggested we stop there. I should have known they wouldn't have an embroidery hoop as I knew they didn't carry
the floss. Used the restroom and commented to a lady about the cute sink for kids. Never
have seen a low one in a store restroom. She said they have them in elementary schools. She
looked familiar; asked are you from Cherry? She said no, but I teach there and live in Hibbing.
She said I looked familiar. Introduced my self and she did the same. Bev Cackoski! She said she
had A through J. Also is in contact at Christmas with Becky and has seen Elizabeth's name in
the paper in Eveleth news. Told her I do a newsletter everyday and will mention that I saw her.
She said to tell everyone "hello" from her. Got to Brainerd half hour before Haps was over.
Visiting were Barb Lever, Sara Aho and two of her nieces, Kathy and Jonathan's girls. They had
been biking on trails in Brainerd. Barb said she had seen Sarah in the hospital; a little girl in so
much pain. Pauline Lahti had an extra embroidery hoop so don't have to buy one. :) dk
