Back to school you'all
Everyone is back in school (except John) but it's not the same as when they were little :-(
Thinking of Halloween and there again probably no one will be going out this year. I loved getting all the pictures of the kids in their Halloween costumes....my favorite holiday.
Speaking of school, it's a bit hot too be in school. In fact, it is darn right steamy. I'd be dozing off about 2pm. Study hard all of you, whether you are in high school or college
Happy 16th birthday, Mikey
and to you as well Liam!

and the joy of cooking!
Emma, with friends, at a restaurant that has swings instead of seats....cool!
Jim and Mary Ann enjoyed 4 days at the falls. Below they did the Maid of the Mist ( they call it something else on the Canadian side) and got soaked. Beautiful weather and a nice time had by all.

Can you find me in this picture? This was third grade....my first year in public school. I thought that my teacher, Miss Clark, was a movie star. She was so beautiful and really nice. I loved school from that day forward. I remember so many of the faces.....most of them I went through 12th grade with. The two girls to my right were in my high school "club" The Bopteens. Silly I know but we sure had a great time. I count 39, a big class by today's standards. I also remember the courtyard where this photo was taken. My Dad went to high school in the building behind us. Now, of course, it has all been torn down.
Until next month....
Enjoy October, the best month of the year. Send me news and pictures!

Happy Birthday to me!
Well, amazingly, I turned 75 this past Saturday. Thank you all for your kind birthday wishes!
Jim and Mary Ann took a trip to Gettysburg, Pa. to visit our history of the Civil War. They also stopped by Hershey to shop for chocolate!
Beautiful, cool summer weather made the trip a big success and now Jim and Mary Ann are looking forward to a trip to Niagra Falls in October.

Recently went to a monthly event called Mass Mob where people go to Mass at a Detroit Catholic Church. This is St. Albertus. For more go to the link below to learn about the church.
Until next month, take care everyone. Let me know if you have any news. I will do a piece next month on Allison's start of culinary school with pictures and so on.
Have a great Labor Day!
