Well, sure. It has been a week since I posted my week eighteen photographs, which were all about purple. Here are the images and stories of the week.
Tuesday, May 16th:
I went to the high school to vote in the school board election. At the school, there was an exhibit, featuring the artwork of students in the school district, from kindergarten through grade twelve.
Wednesday, May 17th: I documented the demise of a large ash tree as it was removed from Town Commons, in front of Grand Island Town Hall.
I also took pictures of a new tree being planted.
Thursday, May 18th: I went to Buffalo by bus and visited the farmers market downtown.
It's still early in the season so the farmers market was fairly small, compared with how many vendors come in the summer.
Friday, May 19th: I interviewed Zumba instructor Nichole Becker.
She told me how she decided to become a Zumba instructor, as well as her motivations for planning a Zumbathon to raise money for Relay for Life and for a three-year-old girl named Hannah, who has a rare and aggressive form of leukemia.
Saturday, May 20th:
I joined a group on a hike through Buckhorn Island State Park that was being led by Dave, an expert on the natural world.
In the afternoon, I went to Tonawanda with a group from Saint Martin in the Fields church to see a musical performance called "The Drowsy Chaperone," presented by the niagara regional theatre guild.
It was hilarious. Musicals aren't real life. In a musical, people, at random times, start belting out dramatic songs about their lives and their lost loves. In this musical, they added the element of people randomly tap dancing in a large group. Well, that was definitely worth the admission price: an entertaining production that included elements of a musical play and a dance recital!
Sunday, May 21st: In the morning, I went to church. After the service, instead of a coffee hour, we had a reception to honor the church secretary, who was retiring after having worked at the church for eight years.
After church, I went to Nichole's Zumbathon and danced and danced and danced... and nearly dropped!
It was hot in the hotel! But the Zumbathon raised $1,300!
Monday, May 22nd: I went to a friend's house to start pruning her shrubbery. It was cold and windy.
My work was in the front yard. In the back yard, there is a beautiful view of Gun Creek. Just out of sight is the Niagara River.
