The last two weeks of June were very busy, and one of our journeys was to visit my brother, Sam, his wife, Trish, and their dear Bob. Just several days earlier, as I wrote previously, Bob suffered heart failure and his life span is unknown, thus we were anxious to see our dear "nephew." He is at home, one hind leg paralyzed, and on many heart drugs. He seems to be holding his own, and is back to catching chipmunks and lounging in the beautiful garden. Jason, Alison and Teddy were joining us to visit that day, as well.
Somewhere in the middle was Father's Day, and what a perfectly beautiful day we had to celebrate the wonderful father, LM! We picked up his girls and were off to spend the day in Provincetown. Our first destination was the guest of honor's favorite restaurant in town, The Lobster Pot.
My love and I!
After a delicious lunch - LM enjoyed perfect baked flounder, Meg, a lobster pie, Kristi fried clams, and I had my usual lobster-avocado cocktail with mango sauce. A work of art that I carelessly consumed without a photo!
We next set out to walk through the teeming and fun streets of town. First stop was to visit dear friends, Herb and Kevin (Kevin used to be a member of the architectural staff in my office). They have owned an interior design and home decor business, Shor, in P-Town for a few years and this year, bought one of the town's most beautiful buildings and moved their shop. It is exquisite and we enjoyed a lovely tour.
After lots of fun and shopping we slowly made our way back to the car parked on the main pier, and stopped for a few photos.....
The following Thursday, LM and I were honored to attend his daughter, Meaghan's graduation from nursing school. Meg has worked so hard to get through this program, and her goal now is to go on for her BSN. The obstacles she has faced would have taken me out years ago.
Meg receives her nursing pin.
This is a photo of Bob taken this week...relaxing on the back deck after a chipmunk catching session. bright spirit!
Sending love and relative coolness to all!

|After a trip to the back of the TV revealed no birds, she was back around to the front to try and make the capture. All the while her "people" were doing their best to stifle their hysterical laughter, as not to embarrass the poor girl.|
|She settled in to watch the entire hour and never gave up on her quest until the annual fundraiser pitches resumed.|
|This is my favorite booth at the market. There are beautiful bouquets, homemade cards, lavender products, and catnip pillows!|
|The booth owner's cat and the catnip pillows.|
|The bouquets include the vases and are reasonably priced.|
Hope everyone had a lovely 4th. Ours was very quiet with just a lovely poached salmon, fresh peas and new potatoes dinner.
Love to all.......
