We had a short taste of sun and now we are back to cold rain, and maybe some freezing rain. Even those sunny days were a little chilly, with the wind. However, as I have said many times, I think I am reminding myself, in August we appreciate those cool breezes that we get because that keeps our temperatures down lower than the city’s.

Happy birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week. Big balloons go out to Sean Hagarty and Gregory Pyden who celebrated their day April 4; Nicholas Silva, April 5; Mauricio Sampaio, April 8; Mariah Donahue and Frankie Paciello, April 9, and to Brendyn Cimeno and Madalyn Crowell who celebrate their day today, April 10.

It is official; I heard the pinkletinks on Saturday afternoon. They were so loud when I went to see Jan and Floyd Norton. It was almost scary, how loud they were. Also the kids are playing baseball at the club, but I have not yet heard the ping so I still have to hear that before I can really say it is spring. But there is still hope.

Easter weekend was nice. There were parents out with their kids all dressed up, taking pictures on Donaroma’s front lawn with the big Easter bunny and all the spring flowers around his paws. The Easter egg hunts were a success as I was told by friends who had children young enough to go to them. The hardest part of Easter is nighttime when you try to put the kids to bed after a day of chocolate and lots of sugar.

I reported that the fundraising for the Relay for Life has begun, and one of the fundraisers is coming up on Saturday.

There will be a cornhole tournament on Saturday, April 11, held at the Tisbury fire department. It starts at noon and cost is $40 per team. Double elimination and first and second place take home prizes. It will be a good time and you will be donating to a great cause. Hope you can make it.

I had a chance to see Marge Look on Sunday when she was out for a ride with her daughter Joyce. She looks great and she speaks very well.

Here’s a travel opportunity: There are a few spots left for the trip to Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, but this is your last chance, so call ASAP. The trip is set for Wednesday, April 15. Exhibits can be viewed at the museum’s website mfa.org. Lunch is on your own at the museum, $35 for the bus; $10 for museum admission and purchase your own ferry ticket. Call 508-627-4368 to sign up.

I have a fun time with Paula and Drew Smith who live two yards over from me. If you look out my back door, you can see their side door and I always know when they are here because the light is on. Paula will message me and tell me to watch for the lights and vice versa. This past weekend the lights were on. They were here to help celebrate the 60th birthday of Paula’s brother John Smith, who was feted at the Portuguese-American Club in Oak Bluffs.

They also enjoyed the company of their niece and nephew Kelsey deBettencourt and Conor Smith, who both celebrated their 21st birthday this past month.

Happy birthday to all, and I hope I see the lights on again soon.
