Where has the time gone? I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted. We just had a whirlwind trip to see my mother, and saw all of my brothers and sisters as well. On top of that, there was a wonderful get together, reunion for my fathers side of the family, saw my aunts and many cousins. What a wonderful time...even with the rain!!Many of these cousins I hadn't seen in several years, nobody lives close! Shame as it was such fun catching up on their lives. I had to post a few more pics from our visit with the grands.... the little boys had to take a drive on the lawn mower, they really enjoyed the drive!
I have to finish with one of my quilt guild ladies quilts....isn't it stunning. .One of the ladies, a wonderful quilter, Martha Dubard, did a quilt trunk show for us... she shared some lovely quilts with us. This was my favorite.... or maybe this one.... well ...I really likes all of her quilts. I have quilted 3 quilts and part of another since Monday when we got home...but not taken photos yet. Have a great weekend.
and sisters with my mother. A few had left and some hadn't arrived yet, but we took a break in the rain as our photo opp. One of my aunts and her family.... always an opportunity for devil horns!And another cousin, with her family. It was such a good time. this photo...one of my brothers had just fallen into the lake...with his clothes on.... I had to snap it. Just wish I had been down at the lake to get that shot!
Have to post a few pics of the actual reunion. These are the cousins, or some of the crazy ones anyway. And of course a picture of 10 of my brothers
We had a terrible wind storm come up here and the next door neighbor's 75 foot tree...uprooted and landed in the other neighbors yard. Terrible for them...but I was certainly glad it didn't fall my way on one of our cars. The other night as we sat on the deck, I happened to look up.... and just above our head, it was like a scene from the movie, THE BIRDS!!! Above us on the electric lines there were gathered black birds... and not just a few! In fact I ran into the house to get my camera...and there were so many when I came back...it looked like swarms of flies in the air...but all those black spots are birds who took off from the roof and wires!!!! It really creeped me out... just a bit!!!Maybe they are the ones that have been pecking my tomatoes. Whilst visiting my mom.... one of my brothers lent me....or maybe I should have said the Professor and myself, his Mustang convertable. I had to snap the Professor driving it....... He had just looked over at me and said, " this car wants to go fast!" Of course he resisted the urge...but it was a fun car to drive! I think you can tell we enjoyed driving it.
