The Gillespies

Doug and Odette are in town - it's a big weekend for them. Last night was Doug's class reunion. This morning they went to a memorial service for an old friend in Manistee, and this afternoon was the Van Pelt Family Reunion in Manton. We went to the reunion to get a chance to talk to them. The weather was miserable - cold and damp - and I'm guessing there were less than thirty people there. We had a good chance to catch up on all of their news and adventures.

Laurie, Chip and Dylan and the guinea pigs arrived from Niagara Falls around 6 p.m., just in time for burgers on the grill. It's so good to have them here - they'll stay for 3 or 4 weeks.
