This week the new redwood stairs and walkway got a protective coating, and the railings and trellis were painted white.
Our little lane got a new sign. The old homemade sign which was on a 4 x 4 redwood post was knocked down by a careless driver. The county doesn’t provide street name signs for privately maintained streets. I looked on the internet and found a few places that make street signs. I found a reasonable price. My neighbors, Mary and Sandra, split the cost with me. Sandra had a bag of cement and a post hole digger but none of us wanted to do the work. A fellow working for the landlord next door said he would put up the sign as his boss’s contribution.
It was my invitation to Bev Lombardo’s memorial celebration of life to be held this Saturday at St. Alban's. I loved the picture and the sentiment. Bev was my sponsor when I took a beginner’s class at the Episcopal Church two years ago. She was also a quilter. Bev was 75 years old and I believe the photo was a recent one.
