Sunday at Tobin for a gathering of family and friends

A bunch of us gathered to eat, swim, visit, eat some more, share pictures, play badminton & Yahtzee, and catch up on old times.  We were also celebrating Kathleen's birthday...she's the one in the long white dress, in case you're wondering.  Much fun was had by all.

Glenda and Tazz Visit from Australia

I met Aussie Glenda on my online recovery site (where I have made and met many friends) and when I heard that they were taking a tour of the USA on a Honda Goldwing, I invited them to stay with us if they happened to be coming through our area.  It turns out they were and so they arrived Wednesday and stayed til Friday.  They are wonderful, generous, friendly, funny, interesting, and very dear.  Both Grant and I really enjoyed having them!  Dorothy came up to visit on Thursday and met them.  It was very fun!  Here are a few photos to memorialize the time they were here.

You wouldn't believe how hard it was to catch a good picture of Grant.
