Goodbyes

This whole week has been hard work during the day getting Harvey ready and goodbyes in the evening. My mother and father in law, Gennie and Forest gave me a wonderful dinner on Sunday; my school girls (Eleanor- the manicotti was wonderful, Liz, Becky, Vanessa, and Terri); old friends from – yes it’s been 42 years, Donna, Rick, and my namesakes Barbara and Jonathan; my sister in law Sharon; cousins Rachel, Tara, Amy, Kerry and Jude (such a sweet and good baby), Susanna, friend Nancy, later Randy and Marc joined us. This is the hard part about leaving: all these lovely people won’t be coming with me!

Today is the final push to get Harvey’s roof in shape for the future. Of course, like all the things I’ve done this first summer of retirement, it’s taking a longer than I thought it would. So up on the rooftop I go, the rain is coming tomorrow.
