The family reunion on Saturday was lovely, by the way. It was held at Mike's cousin's home on Crystal Lake in Connecticut. I know Mike really enjoyed the conversation and I really enjoyed the food. His grandson is doing a project on armed forces veterans in the family, so that gave Mike something to research with cousins and the one remaining uncle of the "parent" generation--just the kind of thing he loves--that military history.
There was plenty of talk about the group taking a tour of Sicily next summer. Mike offered to work on details with the cousin who hosted the party. That would be a great opportunity should they pull it off.
