Sweetie was feeling much better Monday. She went to work and even happily attended the astronomy club's holiday party. An excellent affair it was, too! A good meal was served in the nature center where tables had been set up. Where else can you look across the table at loved ones and friends, look a little to the side and see a live timber rattlesnake in a plastic enclosure, then look to your right and watch freshwater fish and amphibians in a large aquarium? Before retiring to the planetarium for a nice program, we were given the opportunity to choose among old and new Sky & Telescope and Astronomy magazines. Publications from as far back as the '60s were given to the club by Art Nenadal's heirs. He had carefully preserved many years' worth of magazines, mostly within their original mailing envelopes. Sharing memories of Art and taking home some of his cherished collection brought smiles to those who knew him. Funny how it is that, when some people leave us, they leave us with more smiles than tears. Smiles: Not a bad legacy.
