There will be no dramatic or scenic pictures today; just a few "family photo album" types of pictures. Son, Mark, daughter-in-law, Heather, granddaughter, Meghan, and great granddaughter, Brielle came by the bus last evening bringing pizza for a pleasant visit. We would have normally gone to their place for something from the grill, but we are not yet ready to leave Baxter (and Belle) alone in the bus for any extended period. I bought a light weight, collapsible crate for Baxter, and he doesn't seem to have a problem with it.
The first picture shows the two dogs in a quiet moment. We are starting to have more of them (quiet moments, that is). The second shows Meghan and Belle with Brielle in the background. The next shows an intent four and a half year old reprogramming my laptop. The last is a nice shot of Heather and Belle.
For the next week we'll be hunkered down in chilly NH (35 degrees this morning) and visiting family and Durelle's golf and bridge buddies at Nashua Country Club. We lived here for an interrupted 25 years so there a lot of old friends. We'll also visit my sister, Marian, in Royalston, MA and check on the status of their log "cabin". We expect to get back to SC on the 16th.
