A long week in the End…

Thanks to John Pavlin, the VP of West End Neighborhood Development , for  coming up with a great social idea for the neighborhood;  “W.E.N.D.esdays” ….   Now, Historic West End will have walking tours weekly on Wednesday evenings at 6PM. Meeting at the Grounds Coffee Shop under the Skyloft (898 Oak Street) , behind CVS on RDA.  This week the first gathering had a very good turn out.  W.E.N.D is inviting all to tour the neighborhood and enjoy the good weather!

In addition to the WEND cleanup, Friends of West End Parkheld a cleanup today, thanks to Yomara Velez and the FRIENDS (Ryan, Stephanie, Beth, Mary, Joel, Carlton, Reggie,Gretchen, Ayana -Park Pride and the many others) for organizing and making the Oak Street,Lucile, Dargan,Lawton Park- my favorite!!  Awesome paint job and clean up guys.

Lastly, thanks to my bestest- Jerilyn Lewis( the best investor REALTOR in the ATL- 404-771-7956) for your help with my flower bed. I didn’t realize it needed THAT much work- nor did I realize that gardening is THAT much work.. lol.. now, ode to you- it should be  ‘Easy street’ for me..

 

 

The day after; Another West End Party..

Yesterday (Feb 24th) was my birthday! -thanks for all the Facebook shout outs 🙂  My wonderful neighbors (Beth and Joel McBee) had a combined, birthday/ Mardi Gras party in which I was dubbed “Queen” .  We had a lovely time, plenty of Louisianna home cooking, drinks, sweets and another special guest: “Tekitha” – who sung her hit song “My Heart Aches” . (check out theMyspace page www.myspace.com/tekitha  or Youtube of this Solo Artist down with Wu Tang Clan) .   West End certainly knows how to make a person feel special.  As usual, I was able to get only a few pictures before my battery died 😦 … I think Beth has more…
