Up May 14 - 16, 2010 Altoona Visit Slideshow

I was "off my leash" for a few days in my beloved hometown, Altoona. It was so nice to visit with Girard and Bonnie and their family and Gretchen and Neal. When I arrived Bonnie and Girard took me to dinner at Aldo's -- delicious, as always!  Friday evening I visited with Gretchen and Neal.  Saturday morning I went to the Art Show at the Campus and caught up with Linda Noonan who was working the Juried Art exhibit.  Saw two of Michael Allison's paintings (April's art teacher years ago) but missed seeing him.  I left there, got gas at Mallow's and chatted with Jimmy and Jay who I haven't seen in 100 years, what a trip down memory lane!  I stopped by my very first house, 509 Ninth Avenue, Juniata -- purchased in 1967 -- April's birthplace. Sadly, the neighborhood is in decline and my old home is now part of Section 8 housing.  :(  I then drove across town to the Veterans Hospital for the Armed Forces Day celebration hoping to catch up with dear friends, Peggy and Bob Peterman.  Missed them there, then on to Legion Park in Hollidaysburg for their Armed Forces Day celebration -- not there either.  Finally found them back at the VA Home and we had a nice visit.  From there I went to see  Joyce at her lovely new home and we had dinner and a long visit.  Sunday I went to church with Bonnie and Girard, then headed home, with a stop at good friends' Linda and Ken Noonan.  They bought an RV so I took a little tour and we had tea and a nice chat.  It felt so good to be in the mountains -- not to mention "off my leash!" <G>  I'll return in August with my sidekick for my 45th (count 'em) AHS Reunion. Tempus fugit.
