Gene and I had a very busy weekend. We spent Saturday in Sun City (a retirement community a little over an hour from our home.) Gene's dad (98 1/2) was all decked out for a belated Father's Day celebration. About 40 family members came to wish him well. He looks great doesn't he? He is pictured with a granddaughter, Clare.
.....and then Sunday we went to a Change of Command ceremony at Camp Pendleton. Our son-in-law's brother was being honored. His family flew down from the Seattle area for the big day. We had never been to this type of ceremony. It was really impressive.
For months now, I have looked at this angel and thought she would be a great give away. She is one of my Annie Angel patterns. You all are such angels to follow along with me......I know she would like to live with one of you.....So, make a comment on my blog by Saturday (the last day of June) and I will have Nick and Sophie pick a name when they get here. (Only 6 more days!)
Today is my only day home this week....I am working and teaching a LOT this week. My sister Kathy is on a well deserved vacation. We will have a houseful of company all next week, so I plan on spending the day cleaning....(I'd much rather sew) We are getting sprinklers in our side yard and all the dirt from there is now inside! It is going to be a LONG day. :)))))
I better start before I convince myself not to! Don't forget to comment....Jo Ann
