Sue- Your family has the most beautiful smiles. Thank you for sharing photos.

If you get a chance- AMC has a series The American West- Billy the Kid was one of the episodes. Very much worth seeking - new episodes release on Sunday evenings.

Shannon said thank you for forwarding the story on the Sellecks. My duaghter-in-law loves the family.

Sue, I did so enjoy your photos of Marion and the family. Loved that wedding photo. Your sister Betty is certainly a beauty. You sure stand out in the crowd with those dark headed folks and there you are a little blonde. :) So cute!

Well there you go! Mac n Cheese on Macaroni Day. Well you were a day early having had it for last night's dinner! :)

XOXO Trisha
