Home & Garden > Holidays


We celebrated the fourth on Saturday with a picnic which also served as the Hinkle family reunion. Ted's five
brothers were there and some of my SIL's relatives. David and Nova have a lovely home in the country. There were
about fifty of us and a ton of food. Ted's youngest brother spent a fortune on fire works, to me it is a huge waste of money but the little kids enjoyed it.

On Sunday, my daughter,Linda and my grand daughter and her
family and Ellie came here for the day. Sara has two children and the youngest,Chandler is an enchanting child.
She even managed to suck Ted into her pretend play. She
invented a train trip with tickets and a tea party. I
think she is going to be another one of our ultra smart kids.

Adrienne left for Rome on Sunday morning for her international studies. She won't have to work hard because it is a general education class. She told me what herclasses were for the fall semester and they were physics, differential equations, computers in engineering and I forgotten the fourth one but it sounds awful to me

Yesterday it just felt good to rest and relax. We watched four episodes of Middlemarch and loved it.

We have had lots of rain and this is unusual for our parched state. I have ripe tomatoes from my tiny garden,
but no squash yet.

Have a happy fourth!

My tomatoes are way behind this year because of the unusual cold and rain at the end of May, but they are flowering, so I'll get something. Anything not ripe by September turns soft and pink, so not a lot of time left. Just the thought of 50 relatives or 50 anybody else is enough to make me stay home. I guess my idea of celebrating is business as usual! Have a great day!

I have four plants and I put them in the ground earlier than usual so I had tomatoes on the l5th of June which is a record for me. I hope you harvest some before it gets chilly.

It sounds lovely and I envy you your extended family and good feelings for them. It has been my fortune that in both marriages, vacations and holidays and relaxed times were not honored. Jay most often buried himself in his sciences, and Ed is afraid to enjoy himself for fear some evil God will punish him for daring. I got a laugh among our friends one day when I said "Jay doesn't take vacations, he goes on field trips.

Ted used to be the most fun loving person and the life of the party but sadly the big A. has changed him. We didn't sign on for this but it is what it is.
