Saturday, Party Day

Hannah went camping with the scouts.  She will return tomorrow around noon.  I hope she had a great time.  It rained all day.  I sent a rain jacket and a poncho.  She was really excited about going.

The rest of us went to the Powell / Rudd party at Alpena.  Patsy and Donnie did not make it this year.  Patsy called afterwards to see how it went.  She said she wanted to go, but just did not feel up to it.  Helen searched high and low for Uncle Truman and could not understand why he did not show up.

Betty had the tombstone people set a slab under Clayton's stone.  Unlike Richard's, Clayton's slab is granite.   

It does look much better.

Cousin Winnie bought the boy a NASCAR.  He was thrilled.  He said, "Thank you, Winnie."

No calls from the keepers of the girl so far, so I guess everything is going fine.

Brother's stone

They set brother's stone today.

Helen and I buried his ashes just in front of the stone.  The dark markings along the bottom are water spots from the rain.

Brothers together.

Monday mailbox day

We are bored.

Here comes Emmy!

Going to Helen's.

We're going too!

Helen's new mailbox, from Mailboxes by Greg.  Notice the HP, for Helen Powell.  I guess that is the way he thinks of her.

Now, Greg's new mail boxes. GA for George Aday, George Aday and Greg Aday.  No Mom Aday.  Greg said he could not stand Helen having a better looking mail box than he had.
