About my Birthday

First of all......thanks mom.
Enjoyed my birthday. Heard from all the children which always makes me happy.
John and Kristin treated me to dinner. Delicious. The topper was hearing the owls when I was in bed.
Love that sound.
Looking forward to tomorrow when Liz will drive Betty and me to Seattle to see June and Roger.

The Discovery Moment

      This is the hornets nest we discovered.  We enjoyed the artistry but had to play it safe,
This is the canopy the family put in the yard. They fit 3 large tables, two fit under the canopy the other was an outsider.
A few of the photos I took at the Family Picnic. These are figs Liz brought covered with balsamic vinegar and Italian cheese.

It was so hot Liz and family put up a canopy. They also had a spritzer you could run through to cool off. I should have taken photos when it was completed, and people were visible, but my brain was fried.
The deck had a fan and I stayed there with Dan, Betty, Cindy, Arlene, Catherine, and my friends Mary and Mara. They put two tables under the canopy for Liz & Family, James & family, our sons Joe & Mike. In spite of the heat we enjoyed ourselves and shared some memories of Joe.

Trip to Mt. Rainier

John and Liz were kind enough to drive us to the beautiful Mountain.
For some reason there was a delay of 45 minutes. We had our nephew from Milwaukee with us and he seemed to enjoy the trip and didn't mind the wait. We visited and had some funny stories to exchange.

Here are some photos of our day.

At Peace

Joe passed away yesterday at 2:13 p.m. I had hoped I would be with him and it happened.
I will miss him but I am so happy that he is out of the painful life experience that was his for too long.
Our family has been so loving, helpful and supportive.
I thank Hospice for their much needed help and kindness.
Rest in Peace Joe.
