Family Picture 55 years


We started the day with a wonderful breakfast at Gary and Lynn's.  

 Tom played Gary and Lynn's beautiful piano.

Richard read us some of his amazing poetry.


Then we watched some old family movies and took a few naps.

We ended the day with by going to dinner and discussing the disastrous presidential election season and whether they should do away with 3 point shots in basketball (Richard thought they should).

I always love the time with my family.

Throwback Tuesday . . . Family Picture in 1960

Dad, Mom, Richard, Tom, Lynn, Gary,

I love this picture.  The caption on it say it is the day Gary and Lynn announced they were expecting Chuck.

"Wicker has

been the bane of my existence," said Gary, after I brought these home from D.I. ($5)

Why, you may wonder, is wicker the bane of his existence?  Because there are wicker baskets hanging from the ceiling in the DEEP (storage area) and he bumps his head on them when he is getting boxes down for me.  

I say:  If wicker is the biggest "bane of his existence," then he has a pretty easy and carefree life.

It was Natalie and Trent's

1 year anniversary on Monday, and we got to babysit our grand-bird for a couple of days.  I have to admit, she is pretty cute and pretty spoiled.   I felt guilty not holding her if I was home, so I did a lot of vegging over the weekend.

A short

but very fun 1 night trip to Wendover with our high school friends.  First there was golf for the guys while the 4 women who were there went to lunch and talked for 4 hours straight.

Then a buffet dinner and the Beach Boys tribute group at the concert hall.

Doug and Duke were our car mates, and it was a very entertaining and lively discussion, somewhat reminiscent of the "Odd Couple".

We are blessed to be friends for for than 50 years and feel we can pretty much say anything to each other, and if you don't agree you set them straight.   Lots of fun.
