 A new hibiscus blossom this morning.
 Abbe helped Barb and me with chores...yesterday it was Mustafa.
 Very sunny and warm, so the ponies were in and out of the run-in all day.
 Dropped off the 350 cards late morning and made a quick stop at Wegmans.

At 3:30 Gar and I arrived at the birthday party for our friend Bill Stewart and two of his grandchildren.
 Just in time for dinner.  Brad, one of Bonnie and Bill's sons was here from New York with his family.
 They had quite a spread.
 The usual picnic fare...pulled pork, chicken, potato salad, baked beans, fruit, and so much more.
 It was delicious.
 Son Tim and his daughter were here from Iowa.
 How's that for a birthday cake?
 Bonnie did a great job getting everything organized.
 Son Greg (another artist) was in awe of the kids as they danced with the Dady Brothers.
 We sang Happy Birthday three times.
 This is Bill, the man responsible for all our funky sculpture.

 A beautiful creek runs through their property.

 It's on the edge of a small wooded area loaded with sculpture.
 I don't know what Gary and Adam were looking at....
 Home a little after 7.  Can you tell by the sun?
A nice party and a very relaxing day.
Night all.

    Thank-you for your kind thoughts that you've left on my blog, it has helped knowing that others share in our loss of Hamlet!
