We bowled on Mondays in February!  We’ve made arrangements with Suburban Lanes to bowl each Monday in February beginning Monday, February 6.  We began at 9:30 a.m. and were done around noon.  The games were $3.00 each (a discount for retirees).  Balls and shoes were free.

The February book was Einstein in Berlin by Thomas Levenson. Amazon says: In a book that is both biography and the most exciting form of history, here are eighteen years in the life of a man, Albert Einstein, and a city, Berlin, that were in many ways the defining years of the twentieth century.

The December book was The Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsell.  At the same time Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe. In a race against time, behind enemy lines, often unarmed, a special force of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians, and others, called the Monuments Men, risked their lives scouring Europe to prevent the destruction of thousands of years of culture.

Book - Hunting EichmannWVURA Book Club

The November book was Hunting Eichmann: How a Band of Survivors and a Young Spy Agency Chased Down the World's Most Notorious Nazi by Neal Bascomb.  This thrilling historical account of the capture of Eichmann is told with the kind of pulse-pounding detail that rivals great spy fiction.

Retirees went on a leaf peeping trip to the mountains where they visited the Fort Necessity National Battlefield, had lunch at the Braddock Inn, and enjoyed wine tasting at the Christian Klay Winery.  There was also a tour and a hayride at the winery.  As an unexpected treat, they stopped at the Maywood bakery on the way home.
