My daughter and a friend visited from Baltimore last week from Sunday afternoon through Thursday morning.
We saw two movies at Wolf Theaters. They were impressed with the theater and we all loved the movies “The Heat” and “The Lone Ranger.” I am not sure why The Heat was so funny. After all, it had many guns, many people getting killed and some really foul language, things that I ordinarily dislike, but it was the funniest movie I’ve seen in a long time. The Lone Ranger – well, it had Johnny Depp in it and that made it just fine.
We ate out most of the time. They have some fantastic restaurants in Baltimore so it pleased me how much they enjoyed Mayasari’s Indonesian Grill. My daughter had beef curry, her friend had chicken satay and I had mushroom lo mein. We enjoyed the soup that was served before the meal, and were very impressed with the taste and presentation of what we had ordered. Of course, we had the delicious mango tea. The service was superb as usual. What a pleasure it is to have this restaurant among all of the other places to dine in Greensburg!
After finding a tire was low, we went to Ketchum’s Gulf. The Ketchum men kept Jim’s and my vehicles running for years and they have helped me enormously since Jim’s death. They got right on it, found a nail in the tire and fixed it in record time. Tracey and Linda were impressed with the kind of service they got and that one can get in a smaller community.
*I’ve mentioned about Ian Markham’s trip this summer. Ian, son of Dan and Kem Markham, is a former student at St. Mary’s Elementary in Greensburg and now a senior at Andrean High School in Portage, IN. He is studying in Gatchina, Russia for six weeks while staying with a host family. Arrangements were made by the National Security Language Initiative for Youth program.
