The month flew by. We all enjoyed a special visit by my parents, who drove up from Florida with my brother. John and I drove to Ann Arbor to pick them up and enjoyed a family gathering and Packer game in the process.

Then came the Watervale weekend with my friends that we've been doing for nearly 20 years. Watervale Inn is an old-fashioned resort in Arcadia, Michigan, tucked between Lake Michigan and Lower Herring Lake and we always have a wonderful time with good food, good conversation, lots of shopping in Frankfort, Beulah, and Benzonia, and long walks along the beach and through the woods.

Gorgeous weather, good times with friends and relatives - and the start of twice weekly physical therapy to try to resolve my lower back pain.
