Since I currently live in a small western Nebraska town, with only 5 traffic lights, and NOT having driven in traffic in umpteen years, I was a teeny bit concerned with driving through Chicago, not being familiar with heavy traffic, and unfamiliar highways. Brother kindly loaned me his GPS gadget, and while I politely refused, he fortunately convinced me to use it. (I am too stubborn!!!) I was happily converted to it's usefulness, and managed the drive relatively easily. Thank you little brother!!!
This was one of the first quilts I made, for this now-retired brother, when I became obsessed with quilting. It was from Eleanor Burns and would enjoy making another, in the same pattern. It was so comforting to see it again, well-used and cared for.
This is one of 2 boys, of 15?? grandchildren. This family produces girls!!!! Look at that face! What a solid "chunk" he is.
The kids corner at the retirement party. They had space to run around, play, and there was even one Kids Table of refreshments, just for them. This party was arranged by his 4 daughters and one son - it was so lovely! They did a beautiful job!
