reunions & anniversaries

Had a nice dinner at Dad's last night. My step-bro was in town for his high school reunion -- he graduated 5 years after me at the same high school. Well, not quite the same high school, since the school I graduated from was torn down and turned into a mall.

We also received a magnificent package of goodies from Dr. Pookie's twin sister. An anniversary present full of autumnal and halloweeny things, including a fabulous quilt of red and B&W fabrics.
