Time has been flying here for us between trips to Carbondale and Farmington. We have also been busy with doctor's and dental appointments, a well as physical therapy for myself. Our motor home has also chosen this time to go ill with several items, including the refrigerator and television, malfunctioning. This certainly is the place and time for everything to get repaired, as St.Charles is where we bought our motor home and the best place to have it repaired. Also, we have my sister Julia's home nearby as a place to reside when our home is in the shop. Consequently, for a variety of reasons, we will continue to stay in the St.Louis area for one more month. The weather is getting quite warm here, but it still is home and not a bad place to be if that is necessary.
And St.Louis has many outdoor activities to engage in if we are looking for something to do, one of which is the Shakespeare Festival annually put on in Forest Park during the end of May. This is its fifteenth year of the free festival, hard to believe that so many years have passed since we first started attending! This year the outdoor production is Anthony and Cleopatra. It always helps me to read a synopsis of any production written by Shakespeare before viewing it on stage. The Post Dispatch helps with that by printing it in the paper, as well on a wall near Shakespeare's Glen at Forest Park.
