Hello from Beautiful Wooster                                             July-Aug 2014 Newsletter

 

Another month has passed and here we are facing Fall coming well before anyone is ready. We have had a busy month, but now the late Summer lull is starting. School is starting, vacation time is drawing to an end and the Ohio Light Opera season is over. We always have a certain dislike for this short period of time. After the hustle and bustle of the busy Summer it seems like such a letdown. Actually it has not slowed down as much as we expected just yet but could happen any day now.  Last week was the biennial Italian Festival in Downtown Wooster. The weather was beautiful and we had a good day’s business. In past years that particular festival did not do as much for us as it did this year.

 

Judi is back from her vacation to Hilton Head. There were over thirty family members and friends that gathered for the week’s festivities. She had a great time with both of her children and their families and everyone else. This is her thirty-sixth year of going to Hilton Head for a week in August. (Personally, between you and me, that would be my worst nightmare. When I go on vacation I want to get away from friends and family.) But, Judi enjoys all of the activity and camaraderie.

 

Lots of activity on the farm. The big remodeling continues. My bedroom is now all done except for painting the new door and door frame. Closets are framed and dry walled where none existed before. The most exciting thing that has happened is the acquisition of a huge amount of old tin ceiling panels that we are going to refurbish and install in the kitchen and foyer. Across the street from the Gallery a building is being renovated and they removed probably 2500 square feet of this embossed tin. They had planned to take it to the scrap yard but I offered to buy it and now have it safely stored away. Hopefully, by next month’s newsletter I will be able to report it being installed. There is way more going on in the remodeling front than there is room to report.

 

Bill, the baby duck, has joined the flock. He/She now seems happy to have other ducks to pal around with. I actually think Bill will have to be renamed as I think he will turn out to be a female. Bill is too vocal to be a male. The male ducks lose their loud quacks as they grow and the females don’t. Actually, I think like most men they just give up because they can’t get a word in. Also, wonder of wonders, Mama Duck managed to hatch yet another baby from the second set of eggs. She is one determined duck. The new baby is at my son’s girlfriend’s house for rearing until it is big enough to join the flock. She continued to set on the nest till I tore it apart and threw away the remaining eggs. Now she is back to being a regular part of the group.

 

We are already planning for fall and Winter activities. We have been asked to do a room for the Christmas house that is done every two years by Every Woman’s House, a local battered women’s shelter. This year it is a large house out at the Ohio Agricultural and Research Center and we will be doing a sitting room on the first floor. It will be a big undertaking but good advertising for the Gallery.

 

Take care and enjoy the last bit of Summer.

 Wooster has  WONDERFUL Historic downtown. We have great shops and restaurants. Tulipan and  Broken Rocks are our personal favorites although all are worth eating at, as well. Vinnie gives them all  5 Barks. Other options include The Bistro on South Market, el Rancho Grande, City Steakhouse, The Henry Station and Matzo's. All are well worth visiting depending on what you are hungry for.
