I have a feeling this summer will come and go quickly though we aren't looking forward to the extreme heat. So far it's just been in the 90s with an occasional 100 but we have been much higher than that when REAL SUMMER comes. Caryn and I are trying to get out and enjoy our town before it's TOO HOT. We visited our local art gallery, had a great lunch, talked lots and walked then it was time to go home and nap. Caryn's gone in July to babysit her dg's home while they travel to Europe as a family for 3 weeks.

Spent an hour or so in Sears Art Gallery, watercolor of early St. George area
Thrift stores are always entertaining just to look but not buy
My friend Caryn loves to shop for bargains
Lots to see, love their arrangements
Always something unusual and old looking

Happy FATHER'S DAY to all fathers in our family

We all are alive today because of fathers who took the opportunity to marry and begin a family as far back as history goes starting with Adam and Eve. I love learning of the lives of my ancestral fathers who fought in many of the wars on this land including the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, WWI and II. Putting others welfare over their own safety, sacrificing their time and energy to protect, nurture and care for the well being of their families. I'm also proud of my sons who are fathers and appreciate all those in my family: uncles, fathers, step fathers, and husbands who have helped us all along..

My oldest son Frank, his wife Nedret and son Hakan
Son Daniel, wife Tina and kids: Nathan, James, Heather and Emilee

My youngest son Jeff, wife Rachel,  kids-Eddie and Lorien
