We've had up to 11 bodies in our home for the past 10 nights, beginning Thursday before last. The last three left this afternoon. We hosted a family reunion on my Wife's mother's side a week ago, where home-made ice cream was prepared. I was surprised how many attendees had never eaten home made ice cream, let alone how few were aware of the process involved to make it.

I purchased a Can-Am 90 cc youth ATV from a neighbor. Three great nieces and the lone great nephew operated it. What a time they had. I won't have to mow my lower field for awhile, given the hot laps that were turned. The neighbor's two sons were over nearly every day; And the rough-housing must have gotten to the great nephew, a true city kid, as he was quiet and inactive yesterday.

Only one tick attached and a handful of lesser insect bites and minor scrapes.

All in all, a great time. We enjoy company, and we also enjoy seeing their tail lights cross our bridge.

et - Some craft beer, televised golf, and working wireless internet is helping me cope with the loneliness this afternoon.

I'll get through this somehow...

Like many others, I enjoy having folks over, but I enjoy seeing them leave as well. We went over to (almost) etcallhome's neck of the woods over the weekend. At my dad's funeral back in April, my cousin suggested having a "Friends and Family Picnic" at his old family place in Phillipi, WV. A bit of a sparse turnout, but it was good to see folks from both sides of my family that I don't get to see very often. And it was doubly nice to see them at something other than a funeral!!

As an added bonus, since we were in WV, I picked up a few dozen pepperoni rolls at Tomaro's Bakery in Clarksburg, WV. If you don't know what a pepperoni roll is, you don't know what you're missing! :good2:
