Mama Bear almost fully recovered from Concussion

For those followers, supporters and guests of The Woodward Inns on Fillmore, I am not one to complain or even speak about weaknesses, but many of you have noticed instability in my speech and other complications over the last several months. In late January, while playing racquetball which I have played all of my adult life, I suffered a blow to the soft tissue of the brain below the back of the skull. For about a month, I could not drive, use a phone or computer, or coordinate my right side. I felt as though I went from vibrant to "old" overnight.  While The Woodward Inns has remained almost every bed full since July, my friends have pitched in to make sure we have kept things up enough!! Thanks to God and my dear friends and supporters, I have been able to reach about 90% of normal capacity. Being incapacitated for the first time in my life was quite a blow to my way of work and life. For everyone's support and for God's help, I am so thankful.  I am looking forward to a peaceful and productive Fall and Winter Season!

New Addition to The Woodward Inns Available - The Woodward Row Houses on Huntoon!!

Very Exciting!!!  The new Woodward Row Houses on Huntoon.  Just at the North corner of The Woodward Inns on Fillmore block (Huntoon at Fillmore Street), these Row Houses were built between 1890 and 1923.  They were first built as single family homes, tall and narrow sitting immediately next to each other, much like you would find in Boston or New York City.  As the war came, the Row Houses were made into apartments since additional housing was needed.  There were originally 2 more Row Houses but they were lost in the 1966 tornado which came across town (22 miles x 1/2 mile wide), taking the roof of The Woodward (which was then the widow Fredericka Woodward's home).

The Woodward Row Houses on Huntoon feature adorable, luxury, shabby-chic extended stay apartments for business class.  There will be 1BR, 2 BR and 3 BR hotel apartments. With vintage era features, lovely high-end furnishings and a little touch of quirkiness, this new offering should prove to be very popular!!!!  Welcome to Historic Holliday Park and The Woodward Inns on Fillmore.

Saying "Goodbye" to Grandma Lucille

Saying "Goodbye" is never easy!  On January 7th, my family and I said "Goodbye" to our matriarch.  She and Grandpa had been married since they were 16, totally committed in a very old-fashioned and missed way rarely seen in today's world.  I know that God has taken her to be by His side, even though Grandpa and my Aunt Sis and I are lost without her!  We will see her again in God's time.

Thank you, Grandma, for all you taught me and for all the unconditional love you gave.  Your hard work, intelligence and drive can be found in me.  Your sense of style taught me about colors, textures and peaceful life.  I am forever grateful and look forward to seeing you "in the morning".
