Happy 90th

Click for East Hartland, Connecticut Forecast

We left the Boston area with an interesting meal at the Bugaboo Steakhouse on Arsenal Street.


This place, with its 20+ antler chandeliers, has more antlers and trophies on the wall than Marc’s (our oldest son)  living room.   They even sported a huge bison head that would break out into speech touting the specials for the evening.  The food was quite good.

Now we’re off to the purpose of our visit to New England.  Rick’s brother, Gary, hosted a party to celebrate their mother, Nelle’s, 90th birthday.  While we were at it, sister-in-law Lynn, Bob’s widow, had passed a milestone also.

Gary, his wife Meg, and son Noel have run themselves ragged getting ready for the weekend. Other family members that arrived were; Richard and Shirley (St Louis), Todd (Seattle), Brian (Colorado), and Lynn and Tammi (Virginia).

The weather cooperated and we enjoyed a nice outdoor feast.  Here is Mom, along with her brother, Richard and his wife Shirley.


Our hosts look on from the far end of the table.


Shirley, Lynn, and Tammi look on as Mom digs into her presents.


Tinka and Meg relax over breakfast.


We had a fabulous time before heading back to Boston and then to Dallas.  It was really good to see the relatives from around the country.  All of our thanks go out to Gary and Meg for all of their efforts in putting together this get-together.

On a totally unrelated subject, Tinka has been bombarded with questions about her new sandals. This cute little number came from 9-West.  I don’t know the cost, but judging from the interest, they were worth it.
