Kudos to my cousins Linda, Tommy, Denise, Michael and Anne Marie who hosted a really joyous 50th wedding anniversary party for my godparents, Tom and Simonne Duggan. I am uniquely qualified to comment on this event since I was at their wedding half a century ago. Well, not fully there - I officially arrived on the earth about 2 weeks later. Because my arrival was imminent, the pictures of my mother at the wedding are obscured by tastefully placed baskets of flowers. Despite the heat, the anniversary party was a nice opportunity to catch up with family.
This weekend also brought me to the Higgins Armory to complete my research of various weapons, such as a halberd. You don't see those much anymore, but I can imagine where this could be a handy thing to have around.
My weekend finished with my Dad telling me that he had some lettuce for me. Given my chipmunk woes, I was happy to get it. And I really can't fault my father for gloating as it is a vibrant green color, has a satisfying crunch, and there are no small chipmunk bites on it. I can't tell if I am more impressed or envious - at least I am enjoying really good salads!
