“Bologna Alley” historic marker sign unveiling set for October 16!

Please join us on October 16, at 11:30 am,  for the unveiling of a historic street marker designating the area where people line up for our daily lunch program as “Bologna Alley.”   Our daily lunch program has been in operation since 1937 and in recognition of the Cathedral’s charitable undertaking, the Louisville Metro Council has passed a resolution providing for the installation of a “Bologna Alley” historic street marker.   The honorary marker will be installed on the street post of Muhammad Ali Blvd. and Cathedral Way.

May 22
I have some catching up to do ...
Don and I have been working our fingers to the bone not only Upgrading computers to Windows 10, but also updating software, getting rid of viruses, general cleanup.
The day were were working at the Brother Paulin School, some of the students were curious about what we were doing to their computers and wanted to help!


I've mentioned that we work with some delightful people here.  Jean Marie, Josselyn, John Davidson and Allenz stopped in for a visit.


On Sunday, Gary wanted to take a break and go to the beach.  Now that may sound rather idylic ... we're out here in the Caribbean and a day at the beach is a natural.  But getting there is the fun part.  Phillipe arranged for a driver with a SUV to take us.  Sounds nice, but AC is not something one finds in working condition here ... and shock absorbers are long past having any value.  So bouncing back the road almost all the way to the airport was a test of patience.  I've got to add that on the way back, Rose sat between Don and I and commented that it was an improvement that she had a soft landing on either side of her!
After 20-30 minutes on the road, we parked and hike down the cliff to a rather nice little beach.  Good breeze and the sound of the waves took away some of the ordeal getting there.  Rose just had to climb a rock ... with some assistance from Phillipe and Baba.

There were also a couple of dugout canoes!

While at the beach a young white man came from the brush area along the cliff.  Franko, a young civil engineer from Colorado.  He's with a non-profit - Bridges to Prosperity - working on a bridge project south west of Jeremie.  He came by for supper, good talking to a different person.
