Holiday at Home

holidays; home; food; family

Do you intentionally get lost while driving home for the holidays? When you get home, does your family lock you out? Or do you lock them out if they visit you? Do you even bother going home for the holidays?

There are the relatives who had one too many glasses of wine (mom, one is the limit from now on). There are the relatives that make stupid statements. For example, following that extra glass of wine is the annual statement made by my Mother, “this was the best holiday dinner you’ve ever made”. So mom, you are really telling me that last year’s meal was CRAP! And then there are the wonderful gifts that you receive; gifts that will last a lifetime – like a potato masher. Yes, I said a potato masher. Thanks mom! Ahhh . . . the joys of getting together with family around the holidays.

JO PULVER

art, Shorewood, people

It's all about the students. That realization triggered a friendship between my husband Adolph and Jo Pulver which lasted over 40 years until she died last Friday. Adolph taught art at UWM, and Jo was the advisor for Fine Arts students. Whenever a student had a problem, with another faculty member, with grades, with scheduling, or perhaps with more personal issues, Adolph could depend on Jo to be the perfect intermediary.

And after she retired from a job she loved, Jo retained her ebullient spirit, even when she tread the winter sidewalks of Shorewood, well into her 80's, walking her lively little dog, Gypsy. In fact, as I read the letter I just received from the Dean's office about Jo, I'm suddenly aware of the appropriateness of that name, a Gypsy walking Gypsy. Here's the letter, which will give you a sense of why so many cared:

Postal Box-Checking and A Plensa Radio Story

Post Office, Spillover II, Radio, Shorewood Plensa, Shorewood Plensa Art

This morning I went to the Post Office downtown.

Supposedly, today is the busiest day of the year. There was one person working, with a line out the door and another line at the automated station. Every time I go to the Post Office to send a package, someone - usually the Postal worker there, says "Well, if you'd only packaged it [add here: in a flat rate box, as a shoe, in a plain package, in other packaging] you would have saved yourself some real money."  Every year, I have done something invariably wrong despite my frequent checking on the website, my trying to calculate the assumed weight and dimension crossed with the distance and delivery goal, and ... today was no exception.  Even though I was in a nice chatty line for the automated process, the woman two people back from me, who was wearing not one but two seasonal hats (one of a snowman, and a hat on top of the snowman as if she'd decorated the head sitting on top of her head), could not resist. She let me know that if I'da a just packed that small package in a small flat rate box, I'da saved four bucks. THANK YOU ma'am, that allows me to check that off my list. Duly chastised at the PO, Check! Let it be Christmas!
