Memorial Day

Here's to the world's best cousins, Donna and Carol, who are not only more fun than a sackful of puppies but are loyal, thoughtful, vigilant keepers of the family flame. Thank you girls for remembering our dear departed ones for those of us far away. And feeding the ducks.

Summer kickoff
Around here, we acknowledge the beginning of summer with our neighbors. Each of us presiding over our grills facing each other over the fence, we trade shakers full of cocktails, jazz cd's and whatever's on the grill. Kids playing together, dogs keeping everyone in line. What's not to love in this suburban life?

Here's hoping you're enjoying a beautiful, happy weekend!

We've been spending a lot of time chatting over the fence too, now that it's warm. I think it's really fun!

Its kind of cliche, isn't it? But its such a charming part of suburban life when your neighbors are affable and share some common interests... This particular neighbor built their home at the same time we did, we had our first babies together, they love jazz and are liberal minded...we feel really lucky.
