It is the 1st of August so it’s time to get started thinking about our family reunion at Sandbridge Beach over by Virginia Beach. We are going to have a full house: Buddy and me, the three children and six grandchildren plus our best bachelor friend...NO pets. We’re all so excited. We do this every three years, and it is such a SPECIAL time for me. The house is huge, and it is on the beach...that is the best part! What is a family vacation without a puzzle for the afternoons when you are tired of being out and about in the sun and for rainy days when you are stuck inside? I always bring one, but this year the selection is really special...1000 pieces of one of my favorite Mary Engelbreit’s drawings. The guys are just going to have to keep their comments to themselves this time. I love it...and it’s going to be such fun to put together. August 21st....hurry up and get here. I don’t think I am going to be able to wait these three long weeks to see all of my family all together again. A happy M.E.Monday to all of you.
