Once again - summer in the Northwest arrives the day after the 4th of July ... and so does Jerry's Aunt - Sr. Jeri (aka "Squeaker") and her wonderful friend, Sister Philomena! They brought wonderful gifts of produce from Uncle Leonard's garden and his awesome Boysenberry Pie. Happily, we were able to treat them to a lunch of weekend caught crab. Philomena brought her knitting and enjoyed a variety of movies she brought along.Pat was still in town following the weekend celebrations and we all enjoyed dinner and the Alderbrook July 5 fireworks with her at the beach house. Renie joined us for dinner and we played Farkel while waiting for the 10pm show "Thunder on the Canal". The power was off for a couple of hours as we finished our game by candle light and lantern and then enjoyed the show. As we returned from the beach house to Shorebrook, the power came back.
