Friday, June 7, 2024, WI

 The day started with leisurely coffee with Dawn and then she and I walked to the Cozy Nook for our final reunion committee before the big day with Mary, Erin, Jonnie, Dawn and I.  We’ve got it down and are ready and hoping for a nice day, although there is some rain in the forecast.

It was my lucky day.  I went to Pick N Save for a few grocery items and there was a cop standing by my car in the parking lot when I got out of the car. She told me that I had been going 40 mph in a 25 mph zone.  She noticed my tags were from Minnesota and then we talked about why I was in town and that I had grown up here. She took my license and insurance information and went to her car, then came back a few minutes later and gave me a warning citation. Woo Hoo! I will be more conscientious about speeding in the future - it was a good reminder.  While I was in the store, after getting Dawn’s offer for Ben to stay at her house, I called to cancel the reservation that I had made for him. I was told it was within the 24-hour cancellation period and they would have to charge for the room. I gave her a little sob story and she waived the charges.  Truly a lucky day!

I then went and hung out with Pat and Tracey until it was time to get ready to go to Coachman’s Inn for dinner with my siblings.  Ben had arrived at Dawn’s, as she invited him to stay there rather than a hotel. Randy came over and picked Ben and I up and we met with Rita and Denny, Bob and Penny.   Dinner was lovely and it was nice to be with my family again.
