The local kids are back in school as of this morning. When I was a kid we never went back until after Labor Day. Snow days around here really add up. That might be one of the reasons for the early start. Bishop Martino has resigned & is supposed to retire very soon. The party this past weekend worked out really well. Uncle Frankie, Fran & Lisa showed up. So did Mary Anne, Steve & kids. The New Yorkers are doing really well lately. The kids have been very active these days. There were three cakes at the party. One was chocolate. One had white icing. One was very colorful. Michael really liked it as a kid. Friday's big game was cancelled because of hte rain so my father & Uncle Frankie couldn't go. They missed Saturday's game because of the party. I asked the kids to promise to send me more profile pictures. We spent a lot of time on Saturday taking down the tent in the yard & putting things away. On Saturday Uncle Frankie, Steve, Bridget, Sam & I went for ice cream at everyone's favorite ice cream place, Jitty Joe's in Moosic.
