Pardon my absence . . .

What a wonderful yet crazy busy summer we have had!
 We started with a 90th. birthday celebration for my mother Eileen.
We had not seen my brother Keith in almost 9 years so it was 
a heartening reunion for all of us!
What fun it was to spend some time with him . . . lots of laughs,
 especially while trying to re-create a very OLD photo!
Next was a visit from overseas . . . 
My husbands brother & his wife
who live in Germany brought a
 sweet friend who was having his very first US visit!
"Bron" is a Buckeye fan, so of course we had to visit the "Shoe"!
(That's the OSU stadium for those of you out of staters :-)
Stepson Alex popped in from NY to see "Uncle Nick" as well,
so the "Corelis Men" had a grand time.
Thanks for putting up with our family photos!
The house is now very quiet, too quiet almost, but no time for rest
. . . . . This coming weekend I have a show!
(I'll post about that tomorrow!)

May your summer be blessed with those you love!
