This week starts with my father's birthday, then two nephews have theirs, and Thursday is Ms. M's day. This year there is a special ending, as one of the nephews not only turns 27 today, but is getting married on the 27th. We aren't able to make it down to Louisville, but look forward to lots of pictures.
I would mention the problems I've had finding what I want for Ms M, but she reads this blog, so I can't. [Ha, not a clue either! However, it will be something delivered in person, not mailed, so you will just have to wait a bit longer. Sorry. Unless I totally change my mind, but if I do, you still won't get it on the 25th. End of private message]
Sadly, our weather has gone back to being seasonable, so it's cool and rainy. The good news is, it isn't snow. Shoeshine called tonight and has 5 inches on the ground, with another 3 or 4 due before it stops. He's in Colorado, and their snow often melts the day after they get it, at this time of year.
I went to get this picture which I thought had the groom-to-be in it, but either it was just before he was born, or he was too little to be entrusted to one of his cousins. I decided to post the picture anyway, because I like it.
These cousins represent the offspring of J and 5 of his siblings as of 1983. There are now 9 more, and four of the pictured ones have produced a total of 7 next-gen kids. My four are in the front row- blue sweater boy, matching-skirts girls, and the thumbsucker at the end. One of these kids did not want their picture taken. Can you tell which one? If you guessed Ameranth, sliding off the bench, you are correct!
