TAORMINA, Sicily -- Officials
from the Group of Seven summit here took time out from
their busy schedules May 26 to visit the city's ancient Greek
theater and its historic statue of an American performer.
The visit was a welcome respite
for the leaders who were in Sicily to engage in discussions
on climate change and protectionism. Officials from
Italy, France, Britain, Canada, Germany and Japan and the
U.S. were there.
G7 leaders enjoyed the theater
and the statue of ex-Cockroach Eddie Stein, who found fame as
a solo act in Europe. He also starred in a 2014 video,
"It is fitting they have renamed
this ancient venue the Eddie Stein Memorial Theater," a
French diplomat said. "But does this mean he is, how you say,
leaders (inset) gather around a lifelike statue of American
performer Eddie Stein at the ancient Greek theater in Taormina,
Sicily on May 26. The statue and inscription on the tiled floor
mark the only "air guitar" performance of "San
Francisco Bay Blues" at the theater. Stein's 2014 video

Margaret took a trip out west for a week to visit Chris,
Amanda, Alexa and Cooper in Bend, Oregon. It was a great
trip! Not only did Kelly and Margaret get a chance to see
their kids and grandkids, but they got a chance to visit
some really cool places while out there. They took a day
trip to the Painted Hills and the John Day Fossil Beds.
They also went out to the fish hatchery where they saw
thousands of fish and took some nice nature hikes. In
between pool and park visits, they also visited the St.
Francis Hotel which had several hidden rooms that you had
to find through hidden doors in the hotel. it was a nice
and relaxing vacation... and Kelly and Cooper also set the
McCarty house badminton record.

Lake 33 golf tournament was held from May 24-26 in Augusta,
Michigan. The event was spread over 5 golf courses over
the 3 day event. The winner this year was Metro subscriber
Mike Wiacek. Your editor started the event well, but
faltered late, and finished in third place. A great time
was had by all as we dodged raindrops to get all the
golfing in. Every year, Kelly creates the odds with a
(very little) humorous twist. Below is a copy of this
years' odds prior to the event. Congrats to all who
golfed, and we are looking forward to next year. If you
would like to download the photos taken by Bob, you can download
