Another week, another visitor from the East. We know why you come here. We used to come here too!
Tonight it was Cousins Judy and Gary visiting from the DC ‘burbs. Judy is Cousin Michael’s sister.
This was a too brief visit. Just enough time for a cozy dinner for seven at a local place. Even then I rushed to get back for the nine o’clock newscast.
Judy and Gary’s daughter Rachel is getting married in September, so lots to talk about. My father and his brother (Judy and Michael’s dad) Uncle Murray will both attend. Talk about getting the band back together!
The older I get the more I enjoy seeing relatives. It really is a bigger deal for me nowadays. Is this the way it works with everyone? Is the whole concept of family something that’s only understood as a grown-up?
