Back to 757 with Block Party in our Neighborhood

Good Saturday, everyone! How are we all doing so far? Hanging in there? That's good.

Thank God, we're alive and well, and now back home to Hampton Roads from D-ville where we spent two days (at Tintin's apartment) for the Fourth of July holiday weekend celebration. We would have spent another night and day over there but daughter Tintin has commitment to play piano in one of the churches in Norfolk tomorrow. And after that she has to go to C-ville where she and fellow college advisers will meet Monday for their professional in-service training. She said she'd be there until the first week of August or two, prior to school opening.

This is the restaurant (picture above) where we bought "pancit" and "lumpia" for our Block Party.

Another reason we cut off our stay in D-ville is that we have this Block Party in our neighborhood this afternoon. Glad and thankful that we were able to attend and be with our next-door neighbors in the cul de sac in our subdivision. (See photos above.)

We didn't have the time to prepare something to bring to the Block Party. But we've decided to go to FeLynn's in Va Beach to buy "pancit" and "lumpia" once we've set foot on 757. That's what we did.

At about four in the afternoon when we arrived home. Our new next-door neighbor Nino and family were busy cooking out stuff like grilled hotdogs and hamburgers. Other neighbors, too, did cook out. We unloaded our stuff from D-ville and we also gave those food from FeLynns' to our neighbor Nino and his wife Doree. They displayed them on their table in front of their house.

Arriving home, I was sweating and so was Freny that we had no choice but to change clothes. I don't know about Tintin that she didn't change hers. Anyway, we mingled with our new neighbors on the block, including their guests, trying to get acquainted with them and getting to know more about them. Eventually, we ate while grilling/cooking was still going on. We continued with our conversation with our new neighbors. I left Freny and Tintin there early because I was feeling tired and exhausted, probably from traveling on the road while.

Well, this is all for now, my dear folks and friends. (I feel sleepy!) Thanks for reading this post. Take care and until next time around. As always, I pray, "May God bless US and keep US safe from harm.-chris a. quilpa, 06July 2013
