Happy Birthday to my sister, Debi! Born on the Fourth of July ... la la la. My grandfather hung his flag with a pink bow on the top the day she was born; she was also the first grandchild.
We are back home safe & sound ... I am procrastinating big time getting unpacked and clothes washed. We had a wonderful time; relaxing mornings on the deck with coffee and a good book. (I finished reading "Dove" -- written by a boy who sailed around the world alone, starting at age 16 ... makes me want to chuck everything and buy a boat and sail to the South Seas ..) and some "beach smut" by Jude Devereaux.
David spent the kids' college funds on fireworks for tonight ... should be quite a show.
For now I'll share some pictures from the beach.
