Suzanne's Around Town
Burgerville for Summer Reading& $2 Sunday at OMSI

Hi! Everyone-

Well, I was invited to the Royal Wedding coming up on Friday but when I doublechecked the invite it said "obstructed view" so I just declined. More comfy to watch from home in fleece jammies- no high heels,spanx or royal fasteners!!! Ha,ha,ha! Will&Kate plus 8....billion!!!! Should be a jolly good show and the best produced good news event of the year!!!! Up do with tiara or natural hair with flowers? Kate said "yes" to the dress but which one???Stay tuned!

Lots to do this week in merry ol' Beavertonpool as well!!!

Happy May Day!

Suzanne
