May 1st, 2009

Yesterday was May 1st & Allan Addleman's 80th birthday!! When I was young we used to make May baskets out of construction paper or old wallpaper samples and we would pick wildflowers-violets or Mayflowers & put in the basket. Then we would go to our friends house & hang the basket on the doorknob & run so they would not see us. Especially if it was a boy!! I lived in the country so I would stay with my friend Eleanor who lived in town which gave me a chance to hang May baskets. I am still friends with Eleanor & we get together once a year for lunch. She used to come & stay overnight with me on the farm. She loved coming out there & I loved going into town!

I went to Menominee, Wis. yesterday to Barb Hulback's. Everything was so green & the leaves were popping out on the trees. We saw an eagle on the way home. He was sitting on a telephone pole by a small lake. We have seen him there before. Barb & Don have 3 bird feeders outside their living room window & the birds were busy eating. We saw cardinals, woodpeckers, finches, cow birds & mourning doves. The orioles & hummingbirds are not back yet.
