Correspondence below about my day...

Got really serious about seeing the Ebay checks were in the mail.

I called Christine Fischer and suggested since she had been on the promotion committee Valerie Edmonds might be the more logical candidate for chairman. When I had called VE about our work, she wondered outloud why Judith (who replaced Jack) had been made chairman and not her. I guess ..now that I think of it..it was because Jack had himself been chairman an Judith was taking his place.

Then at work....checked email, and between 11 and 12 went to Beth Perry's presentation to the new theology students. She did a great job and they remained attentive the entire time.

She covered the new ATLA we now have on First Search instead of Silver Platter. Said she had gotten in touch with them about making changes to improve it... It was really worthwhile to me...Where was I when we were making all of these changes ?

Cab to town to pick up packages...5 of them. The Suzanne Hancock First Lady doll, a Martha Washington Brinn (no box or stand)....the SA dolls...which I cannot identify...

Fooled around at home with Ebay stuff, then took the train, #2 bus to Eden's and ...could not get anyone to answer the door, an since BN's car was gone, figured she was too.

When I got back, an exchange of emails from Eden...SHE had BN's car....

Felt "doghousey" about it....

Walking back to the station I tried to really absorb an "live in the moment" the nature around me. Pulled several plants that smelled and ..smelled them...

This has to do with retirement....

I have gotten into the habit of taking photos in public with my Mavica and doing one for the person I am photogaphing. Idid two children today on MARTA or waiting for MARTA

I live near the Hyatt Regency..actually across the street...and had supper there...just about the only one in this big rest..ant in the lobby...and shot photographs of the glass elevators..and looking up in the lobby. I still think it is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever been in, even if it is over 30 years old.

I would like to do more with photography...I especially enjoy photographing my city.... I have a set of slides I did in 1986 of Ponce de Leon..an important street here that I have lived on or near most of my life, a street my daughter lives off of...did it for a history of Atlanta class at GA State....(the teacher was not nearly as impressed as I was)..photographed every house and building.... I would like to have them put on a CD-ROM (wonder what it would cost ?) and then do the exercise again ...photographing buildings and homes.... Well, got to get to sleep...in awhile...

Best wishes, Elizabeth

Thanks for showing me some of your lovely dolls.I LOVE that baby doll in blue at the far right!!!! I've been so busy with my camera club and entering some artwork for competion plus taking my Mom to the Dr. (she's fine) and going to the hospital to do things for my 88yr old aunt who just had MAJOR surgery (she fine now too...in rehab) and trying to keep up with the exercises for my knee and sticking to this crazy diet (lost 15lbs) to get ready for my high school reunion that I have't put any more pictures in my album.

This evening John and I went to the 1st night of our reunion, the casual evening. We sat with my son-in-law's parents. We had a great time Deb and I danced most sll the fast dances (I left my knee brace in the car just in case) and John and I danced the slow ones. The food was good and I saw lots of "kids" from school I haven't seen for years. Tomorrow is the formal night when most people dress up more. Pictures were taken for a sort of mini yearbook. My cousin Cissie is going tomorrow night so we will all have alot of fun. I'd love to see more of your dolls. Feel free to send any at anytime. Do you do alot of travaling?

Where did you say you live? Talk to you later...Diane :-) Be Happy...Have a Great Day!
