I'm Back!

We arrived home late this afternoon after a weekend in New England.  Rhode Island, actually.  Jim's brother Alan is celebrating his 70th birthday this week, and he was given a surprise party by his daughter Joni and husband Bob.   It was a really lovely party for 36 people.  Joni is a gourmet cook, self taught, who cooks from scratch without recipes.  Her food rivals the best restaurants, easily.  She has a natural gift.  We enjoyed seeing people we haven't seen in years and new people we hadn't met before.  All in all, a happy event.  

It was a full day's drive each way, but not too bad since we shared the driving.  I'm looking forward to getting back into my normal routine tomorrow.   This is a photo of the 2 greyhounds Joni and Bob own, Charles (Chubbs) and Cyrus.  Very sweet and gentle retired racing dogs.  These are very pampered pooches.  They even had a hired dog nanny the evening of the party to look after them and keep them from eating the food and bothering the guests.  A very good idea, actually!
