September Was too Soon Over

We saw the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone for the first time. Gil Standing in front of Old Faithful waiting for the full explosion

We reconnected with Happi Thurston Hansen - she was my roommate when Gil and I first met.

Cousins visiting after Aunt Glady's funeral - Elaine Kemp, Cynthia Decker, Nancy Robertson, DeWayne Lee, Mike & wife Jefferson
More cousins at the funeral: Daniel Lee, Tom Lee, Nancy Robertson, Rick Lee, Laura Hoffman, Delwin Lee.

Aunt Gladys and Uncle Boyd's children with their spouses
A collage I put together from pictures I had of Aunt Gladys.

We stopped at the Malad River gorge on the way to Aunt Gladys funeral.

Gil was laid-off after 36 years of working for Tektronix. His group had a farewell lunch at Happy Panda. (the 'gold' watch he was given last year, for the patents and trade secrets he developed, failed this month also). ah well.... time for the next adventure.

My niece Tara and her husband Jason Reynolds brought their new son, Eli, to visit.
Nancy got to hold and play with Eli.

We spent a rainy afternoon at Jacob's while Nancy was wonderful and worked hard on lots of hair.

Karissa showing us how it's done.
