Scotty and his lady Marsha brought his mom along. She is the mother of all three of Don's kids, and although they've been divorced for years, we have many mutual memories of good times when our kids were young that it was great to have her spend the day with us.
While I was preparing the food Wednesday, Cliff said, "Why don't you call your cousin? She and Russ might want to come tomorrow."
"Oh, I don't think Russ is going to feel like it," I told him. A few days ago when we stopped by to visit them, he wasn't feeling well at all. But then I decided it wouldn't hurt to call. Russ answered the phone sounding quite perky, and said, "We'll be there!"

The other day I tipped the bowl of the birdbath trying to clean it, and dropped it. That thing is HEAVY, so I decided to get some younger people out there to put it back together.
Most of our guests left, but the grandson, Heather, her brother, and Titan stuck around, as did the two granddaughters, Monica and Natalie. It wasn't easy to get the above picture, because they all wanted to act as though they were looking at fireworks instead of looking at the camera.
Why do they do the things they do? They even got Cliff involved in their nonsense.
A little horseplay between Heather and Arick, as Heather's brother looks on.
Titan looked so pretty watching the sunset that I got down on the ground on my belly to take this picture. Unfortunately, as soon as I snapped the shot he turned his head, saw me on the ground, and decided I wanted to play. I barely escaped with my life.
It was a good day in so many ways I can't even count them.
