Laurel is a maybe.

PLEASE sign up or respond to post if you can attend.  As in the past, we get fed but no money, only a lot of very old, joyful people.

Now that the weather has warmed up, she says,  “We can play on the front porch and march up and down the driveway if we want to practice our parade playing skills. We will have an audience across the street of chickens and  El Pacas.”)
