I finished my therapy sessions with professionals so now I am on my own. Received good reports from all my doctors that I visited this month. The surgeon is quite pleased with my shoulder healing process and mobility.
Well, there is no rest for the weary. I am back full swing into my ministries and volunteer jobs. Lots of events are happening and I am in the thick of them. We are having a May Day Luncheon, Fashion Show and Expo at the Carson Nugget on May 3rd. Divine Mercy Mass and Veneration is on April 27th, the same day that Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II will be declared Saints. This year we are fortunate to have two places nearby for Divine Mercy so people can take their choice. One is in Carson City at St. Teresa of Avila Church on Saturday, the 26th at 4:00 p.m. and the other is at St. Mary's in the Mountains in Virginia City, NV at 11:30 a.m.
I have been making flyers, handouts and programs for different events that will take place in April and May. I have also starting two sessions of Landings for Returning Catholics. One meets on Mondays with 7 people attending and the other on Wednesdays with 7 people in that group. We will meet for 7 weeks for 2 hours each session.
Got great news last night, my grandson, Joe Thornton, who is in the Air Force just graduated from the bomb squad. He is hoping to go to the Air Force Academy if everything works out. (His dad, my son, Chris, went to the Coast Guard Academy and made it a career for 20 years.) Joe had also been taking sky diving lessons. He is quite an adventurer.
My cousin, Phyllis and her husband, Jim Pedroncelli just returned from a trip to Washington, DC where they saw the wine exhibit in the Smithsonian Museum that has a old sign from the Pedroncelli Winery that was from the prohibition era. They are quite excited that memoriblia of their winery is being exhibited there. Their picture is posted below.
