What's Going On?

In our last newsletter, we mentioned a new floor being installed in Susan and Doug's house. Well, it is finished now and a special thanks goes to Eugene Darguzhis, John's father in law. He basically cleaned up all of Doug's mistakes and made the floor look good.   Labai achiu, Eugene!

A lot of construction has been going on around the neighborhood. It seems that our street will still be a dead end as the county is putting a pump station at the end of the road for the new houses going in behind us.





Significant Dates:

May 14th
Susan and Doug's 9th Anniversary

May 26
Linda Doody aged another year.
