Monday, June 20 – Yes, it is true. We lived long enough to see one of the Cleveland teams win a championship!


No team in 32 tries had ever come all the way back from being down 3-1 to win the NBA Finals. The Cleveland Cavaliers completed the unimaginable on Sunday night, a 93-89 Game 7 victory over the Golden State Warriors to win the franchise's first NBA championship. The Cavaliers are only the fourth team in history to win Game 7 of The Finals away from home. A game for the ages!

A parade will be held on Wednesday. Cleveland will be celebrating for years and years to come. The curse is over!!!

By the way, Marsha wants everyone to know that HER Cleveland Indians are in first place. Go Tribe!

Besides watching basketball and baseball, Marsha is enjoying reconnecting with old friends and catching up on their lives. She has also spent some days volunteering at the church and working on her hobbies. She has joined the quilting group at the church. They make quilts to send to Lutheran World Relief.

She also is tying blankets to send to a church in West Virginia. Our church does a mission trip to Webster Springs each summer. The ladies are making blankets to send to the community at Christmas time.

She is still crocheting plastic mats for the homeless and making baskets and giving them away. Paul actually talked her into keeping her latest creation.

If that isn’t enough, she has another new hobby – Pleachet. This is a very unusually hobby. This is a crochet type hobby involving wool to make hot pads, trivets, or rugs. She really enjoys this hobby but has found it difficult to find 100% wool to use. This is required so the heat from the hot pan or dish does not catch the pad on fire! She makes visits to Goodwill and the Salvation Army stores. She buys skirts and jackets, tears them apart, cuts them into strips and then finally begins her next project.

Paul is trying to figure out where to add on to the 5th wheel so she can carry all these hobbies this winter. :-)

Her first one. She said she has learned so much from her mistakes.
