Cheering Lessa On

Lessa and the Geezer, May 2010.

Himself: Swam, took G’ette to meeting and went to Frye’s pricing Blue Ray stuff, drove north, dinner, shopping, cheered Lessa on.

Herself: Swam, meeting, wrote, cheered Lessa on….very déjà vu’ish as we have been to so many grandkid functions. We both universally decided not ever to return to Walmart again.

Reading: Nada at the moment.

Gratitude: Lessa.

She could bring two people. She chose us.

This woman who’s been to jail, lived homeless and on the streets, who has been battered and a very alone alcoholic-addict, spent several hours yesterday being feted, honored, appreciated, and came away with a scholarship in hand. Her English teacher and a writer friend came to cheer her on. Very good stuff. You bet we are awfully proud of this daughter. Her Sister Lenora (Yeld2) is also. Very, very good stuff.
