We enjoyed a traditional bar-b-que dinner for our grandsons 4th birthday. Dropped our middle son off at the airport for a hiking trip to Europe which will last as long as his savings. He will visit NYC and stay with his brother and take off to Dublin Ireland on Friday. He has prepared well, except I am not sure he or we understand the youth hostel thing. I am a bit worried about where he will sleep economically and safely during the trip. His dream destination is Italy. He also wants to visit the grave of the relative whose middle name he carries. Lt. Wade Horne landed at Normandy and died attempting to cross an inland river along with over 10,000 Americans buried at National Cemetery in Lorraine France. Arriva Derci, Matthew, Happy Birthday Benjamin, life goes on...and is good.
