Thank you Skylar for your "event posting" for the spaghetti dinner benefit for Mary Ann.
I would like to add a little more detail to Mary Ann's knee situation. 2 years ago she had a knee replacement. While going through aftercare therapy it seized (probably from scar tissue forming) and she had to go thru the ordeal of having it manipulated while under anesthetic to "unseize" it. Then the therapy started all over again.
A few months ago it was causing her excrutiating pain and they found that there was infection in that area and that the replacement is failing as it slides out of place. Now she has to have the apparatus removed until infection is gone. She will be in a wheelchair, with IV, for 3 months. Then, if all goes well, another replacement inserted followed by another 3 months of surgery.
Meanwhile, her husband's employer has changed insurance companies which has added to the situation.

And, it was excellent. Wonderful turnout - THANKS (I'm not yelling-its just a biiiiig thanks) to everyone that came - some distance miles were driven-very impressive. If I had left-overs, I'd eat them today.
