Summer 2021 brings new gigs, metiers
By Emma Palova
Lowell, MI – I specifically used the French word metier for specialty or having a knack for something. We are excited to have our French granddaughter Ella here in the USA for the summer after last year’s pause due to COVID-19.
Every day, I learn something new from her and vice versa. Ella is fully bilingual due to her summer stays with us. Previously, she has attended St. Pat’s Summer Care in Parnell, but this year Ella is going to the YMCA at the Cherry Creek Elementary.
In the morning, we brave the construction workers who have invaded the area with huge asphalt trucks and the smell of fresh tar.
“They had the entire pandemic to do this,” Ella said.
I had a little confrontation with one of the workers who accused me of flying through the construction zone.
“Sir, I don’t fly,” I said. “I drive. You can ask anyone who knows me well.”
That being said, it’s good to know that we’re finally going to have our “damn roads” fixed, as Gov. Whitmer would put it. Apparently, it has become a long-awaited priority.
Caledonia, MI – So, I got a new gig with the Caledonia Living Magazine by Best Version Media. My new title is Content Coordinator, which is a new word for editor. It’s a monthly magazine with a regular family feature, a business profile and events calendar.
Submit your ideas and news items to me for the magazine.
