    Thanks for the backstory about these friends. Have a great time together! The sunset pictures could be Impressionist paintings. Beautiful!

    The happy photo of all of you says it all……a special time with special friends! Joie de vivre!

    Sunset pictures were lovely. I agree the chair for the cat was a special photo. I enjoyed reading about the special relationship you have with your former workmate and his family. It’s obvious the feeling is mutual.

    A perfect day with friends! Love the cat chair. I agree with Karin. Still pleasant temps here.

    Good to see Izzy and her family back for another visit. She’s easily one of the most photogenic visitors you’ve had. I looked up Le Petit Prince and it seems to be a fantasy series. Linda, what did you read when you were very young? Did you ever read or enjoy fantasy? Show them a good time!

      I read all the Nany Drew and Bobsey Twins series. Mother took us to the library every week when it was in the old building on 10th and Wilmer? Sat up on a slight hill. I’m so glad she gave me a love for reading. Do you remember her?

    Yes, I can remember both your mother and the Carnegie Library very well. I didn’t realize the privilege of having a Carnegie Library until after it was gone. You, your sister and mother at the Library together seems a very good fit and leaves a very pleasant image/memory. Maybe reading leads to writing and someday Izzy will be a great author.
