Sun Apr 1 = Happy EASTER, APRIL'S FOOLS DAY and SUNDAY! Today I visited the tenants on Sherman and told them about the letter I received from the City of Hutchinson about stuff in the yard. They were very cooporative.

Mon Apr 2 = Today I organized some more of Stan's finances, phoning lots of credit cards. I found that the Home Depot, Sears and other credit cards were issued by Citibank. Kayla, in KCMO was very helpful in getting the Citibank accounts closed.

Tue Apr 3 = Today I drove to Wichita, KS to visit my daughter and her family. It took a little doing to get me and my van approved as visitors on McConnell Air Force Base.
- It is different now spending my nights in a house and in a regular bed.

Wed Apr 4 = I got up early this morning and had breakfast with Anne and family.
- At 8:30 I picked Anne up at Trinity Auto where they are performing some repair warranty work. Later in the morning I met with Pamela J Thompson, estate attorney. It was an informative hour, cost only $250 as a reference from
my younger brother George's wife
's sister. I found out a few new things but mostly confirmed what I had already learned previously. Pam said my form to manage Stan's estate was good.
- This evening I did comedy at The Wichita Loony Bin Comedy 215 Open Mic. It was a good group. Here's my set:

Thu Apr 5 = I picked up my custom rubber stamp, saying Administrator, Stanley A Self Estate at Superior Rubber Stamp. I had ordered it Tuesday morning before leaving Hutchinson.
- The Loony Bin was featuring three comedians, each getting 30 minutes: Brent Terhune, Jason Cheny and Shane McConnahay. My plan: go to all the shows for the four days, Wed through Sat and see what I can learn, so away to the Loony Bin for the show tonight. It was snowing when I drove home.

Fri Apr 6 = I don't know what last night's low temperature was in Wichita, but it was forecast to be 19° F. Looking out my upstairs bedroom window this morning at Anne's house I saw the result of the spring snowstorm (panoramic photo by Louis Self using his Nexus 6P cell phone)
Spring Snow
- Of course I enjoyed visiting with Anne. Around noon I cut my hairs (2 months since last time)
- After I sat in during the first show at The Loony Bin this evening, I went back for the 10:30 show. Bigs, the manager, said, since I came back he'd let me go up for five minutes. Jason introduced me. I did my Viagra set, the same one I had done on Wednesday. Thanks, guys.

Sat Apr 7 = Today's big event was The Hanovich Family Comedy and Talent Show. Robby was traveling, so it was just the girls and me. Everyone took a turn at comedy and then with talent (video coming)

Brooke's drawing. She was embarrassed with her misspelling, but we had her leave it cuz we thought it was cute.
- At the Loony Bin they changed the order of the comedians. Each of the comedians were good, but in their own way:

Sun Apr 8 =It was most efficient to do some Internet work before leavng Wichita, so I looked up locksmiths in Wichita and Hutchinson, updated this blog, looked up the Private Sale value of
Stanley, my older brother who was a retired as a machinist for Eaton Corporation in Hutchinson, KS until he sucommed to a three-week bout with Myasthenia gravis in March, 2018
's vehicles and a few other things.
- Afternoon was packing-up time, which means moving all the stuff I managed to scatter around Anne's house into my van. We had a scavenger hunt to make sure I didn't forget anything. After my van was all packed I offered $1 each for any items that the girls could find that I had accidentally left. To spice things up a little, I also offered $1 for a few left items that I had planted around the house. Katie found a van key I had planted on a dresser behind a pillow and Brooke found the Romaine lettuce I had planted in the refrigerator. Neither found the little USB charger I had left plugged into a wall socket. Final score: Granddad Lou minus $2 and some fun for all. What a neat way to end an excellent visit
- The drive to Hutchinson was a pleasant hour. It's good to be home now in my van parked in Steven's back yard.

Mon Apr 9 =
