Happy Memorial Day

Not much going on here. I've basically done two things on my long weekend -- "spring" cleaning the garage and going to our new pool. The pool is the more pleasant of the two activities... though I admit a deep feeling of satisfaction at having a clean, well-organized garage, even if it will only remain that way for a few days.

We got a membership at a nearby "swim and racquet" club. This might seem silly, since our neighborhood has a pool (which is why we've avoided getting a membership for years), but now we're kicking ourselves for not doing it sooner. This place is sooooo much nicer than our pool. First, the pool is a lot bigger, and it has a lifeguards, diving board, a high dive, a water slide, and a big 3 feet section for little kids. And they have activities like swim team. Tyler made the swim team last Wednesday after a couple weeks of practicing by showing that he could swim all the way across the pool in his lane without touching the bottom. He did it, and he was very, very excited. And Lord knows Tyler needs to find activities that involve actual exercise. They also have tennis courts and tennis teams (Carson is going to do tennis, it starts in a couple weeks), plus a half-basketball court (where I can shoot hoops while the kids are in the pool), and a volleyball court. They also have a snack shack that sells drinks and, um, snacks.

Plus Karen knows 3/4 of the parents and kids who go there.

We went there on Saturday and Sunday and I bet we're going back today.

So that's it for Memorial Day... but it's enough.

Bob Kriner

We've been praying for Bob Kriner at Mass lately. I heard third hand that he is very ill with cancer. Have you heard anything from Soupy?

Are the Bleizeffers from Romania?

I found an interesting link about "Bleizeffer" courtesy of Google:

"I'm looking for any information on the family name "Bleizeffer". I believe they once came from the area around Banat and maybe a town called "Tschestereg or Tschestelek". Any information of the towns or the surname would be appreciated."

Didn't someone do a geneology for our family awhile back?
