My Aunt wrote the sweetest poem. Thought I'd publish it here. Thanks, Aunt Carole!
One is blond with soft pale blue eyes.
The other brunette
With viewers the color of chocolate pies.
One is made of sugar and spice.
The other - snails, nails, and puppy dog tails
And other stuff, not so nice.
One is a princess
In lace and chiffon
Who gives luncheons and teas.
The other is a cowboy
Wearing flannel shirts and blue jeans
Who'd rather eat beans or peas.
One plays the cello
As a mellow angel sitting on high.
The other, the guitar
Like Roy Rogers did long ago
Sitting under a western sky.
So different but yet so much alike
How? You might ask.
Bet you can't guess yet
A wonderful duet
A sister and brother
And I'm their great aunt!

Today we celebrated Jacob's recovery from a sore throat and fever by going out to eat at our favorite Cleveland restaurant, Creekside Deli. If you're ever up this way, and you're hankerin' for a burger and onion rings, this is the place to go! We had an outstanding meal, and we met some very nice folks , The Caporale's! Thanks, Gene , for taking our picture for us!

We've been waiting and waiting for this day - the day that we would taste the first watermelon from the garden. How do you tell if a watermelon is ripe? Well, we searched the internet to find out. First you examine the curly little tendrils closest to your melon. They should be brown. The second indicator is that the bright green rind is beginning to fade. Finally, the bottom of the melon should begin to turn yellow. Oh boy, it's looks ready! Let's cut it open!
