Duluth was treated to Mother Natures softer side during Grandmas Marathon weekend so much so that the News Tribune pointed it out in the headline of a follow-up story Monday.

Q: Just like older people, older animals have special health needs. What are the most common health issues that our pets face as they get older?
Animals undergo many of the same aging changes as humans, including kidney disease, arthritis and changes in vision and hearing. Most pet owners are astute when it comes to their pets’ habits, and subtle changes in appetite, social interaction, sleep patterns or potty habits can all be indicators of age-related changes.
June starts out with Saturn low in the south and east of Spica, the brightest star in Virgo. The two have been a pair for many months, and they move steadily toward the west as summer goes by. In the fall, both will disappear into the sunset.
The annual Friends of the Library Book Sale last week was a huge success. The Friends raised about $9,000, their highest amount so far. All proceeds from the sale go toward purchasing new books and other items for the library.
I’ve been asked several times why I write this column. I think the questioners are thinking a few additional words, “at your age?” I am old, but I don’t feel that my life is over. I do have physical limitations (had to give up handball at the YMCA a few years ago).
We all would rate a good attitude as very important in life. We would rate ourselves as having a good attitude. Okay, but there are a few individuals who can never seem to discover a good characteristic to cite. Don’t you agree? So let’s spend a few minutes examining this trait a bit further.
You won’t want to miss the annual Friends of the Library Book Sale 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. This year’s sale will be bigger and better than ever. We have something for everyone, including many unique items in our bid room.
The library is closed March 28 and March 29 for the spring holiday.
The next Friends of the Library next meet at 10:30 a.m. Monday in the Library’s Classroom. The Friends are busily preparing for the annual book sale April 26 and April 27 and would love volunteers to help. Membership forms are available at the library, or you can join online through the library’s Wishlist at superiorlibrary.org.
