A wish for every happiness, always.
Cheers to the newly married royal couple.
Love one another is the perfect theme for the world.
Today I saw my parents’ fiftieth wedding anniversary (1939-89) champagne flutes in Mark and Erika’s China cabinet. Mark and Erika (2002) and Laura and James (2011) both used these flutes at their weddings.
I had set the alarm this morning for five AM but Grandma Mar woke up before then and texted me upstairs. We’re here together this weekend, watching the grandkids. We woke up the girls and they made it down to the couch. They fell back asleep, snuggled in blankets until we woke them up when the bride arrived at Windsor Castle.
Friends I know were watching snd texting from Florida and Pennsylvania. It was a very happy day. Wishing Harry and Meghan a long and happy life together.
Maternal grandma (FFMarlene) baked peanut butter chip cookies for our grandkids Anna, Michael, Jack and Maura.
We are going to have a doubly sweet family weekend together. Our tins of cookies will disappear at lightning speed.
Last week when a couple of the grandkids were in town we visited this exhibit. Here’s Maura at the Carnegie Science Center.
See the Structure of her knitted shirt?

A screen shot by Maura and Laura as they Facetimed with Jack who was sporting his swim goggles and swimcap.

Charlie (2) joins cousins Maura and Michael in the cloudy mist.
The first time it started and hissed and the air got foggy, he ran out, not knowing what to expect.
Wasn’t long before he joined them in the Cloud Arbor by Artist Ned Kahn.
When we finish our time at the Children’s Museum the kids always run to the tall metal pipes and eagerly wait for the start of the misty foggy cloud.
You should hear the happy squeals.
Good to be alive at sixty-five.
Happy Medicare card to me. I can get that free bus pass now.
My sister and I are in Columbus OH on the big birthday eve after our family gatherings and driving over 1700 miles.
Laura and James hosting a July 4th birthday celebration for me tomorrow.
Here’s a photo collage with some of my favorite things- my family, pignoli, fireworks, coffee ice cream, raspberries, Zeke’s coffee, reading books, teapots, knitting and sock monkeys. Oh yes, a few shots of me throughout the years.
And a few other pics for the second ATOP gallery.
I was talking with my friend today and said I don’t think I use the word atop in my everyday vocabulary. But I seem to have a few photos from the archives that illustrate it.

Took this the Saturday after Thanksgiving when the grandkids and I visited Aunt Mary in NYC. It was a wonderful piece of playground equipment, made in Germany.
