An Eventful Two Weeks in June
First, the surprise 50th birthday party for Tom, put on by his friend Katy at a lovely park in Poland Spring, Maine.
Tom walks in, totally unexpecting this gala.
And here he is, having taken it all in and discussing Toby's beard.
Next, two old but very savvy goats are loaned to us, for us to enjoy and the grand kids to love. But they are a frisky, wily duo: Princess Leah (not shown) and Chewbacca who is cozying up to Toby.
Then this last week's amazing Supreme Court decisions on the Affordable Health Care Act and Marriage Equality, the taking down of the Confederate flag, and President Obama's eloquent eulogy for Reverend Clementa Pinckney in Charleston, SC. and Amazing Grace! (Thanks Rachel Maddow for replaying the entire talk without interruption, no ads!). I'm trying to absorb it all--it's a new era in this country.
And, hey, not to downplay that, but another occurrence: today is Toby's and my 45th wedding anniversary!
Oops, wait--that's not us--just a lovely couple taking a stroll by the lake at Tom's b'day party.
This is us--not as glamorous but so glad to be here and together.
