Beautiful Beaufort

Last October, my sister-in-law, Jean, and I drove to South Carolina low country for the wedding of Mike's first grandchild. The events were on St. Helena Island. It was an evening wedding so on the day of, I walked around the historic city. It's quite beautiful -- the flavor of Savannah or Charleston without the crushing crowds and traffic.


My stepdaughter and her husband built a lovely home on the island a few years ago and are living their dream of plenty of room for grandchildren (two to date), a vegetable garden, and plenty of time to fish, clam, and cook up low country feasts.

Looks just out of a Patrick Conroy novel!

It was a fairytale wedding.

The bride and her three brothers:

The bride is a beautiful and talented young woman:

Wishing them all happiness!


The tall brother above is married and has two little boys. The middle brother is getting married in the spring. The little brother just graduated from Clemson with an engineering degree. Their grandfather would be so proud and happy. Well, I am sure he is!


Ah welcome back. Nice new site!
I've not been to S. Carolina. I picture mossy trees and lots and lots of mosquitos in low country. Silly right? The bride was gorgeous as were the men. October is such nice weather down there without heavy humidity.

At first I thought you were talking about beautiful Bluffton (which is nearby), but Beaufort sure looks beautiful, too. So does the bride. Proud indeed!

Lovely town, lovely bride. If the middle brother is getting married in Spring, maybe that calls for another visit.

Such an interesting and beautiful place to visit, and then a beautiful wedding and a chance to reconnect with family. Lovely.

What a lovely area! The houses with the big verandahs are a definite highlight.

Congratulations to the bride, her groom, and the whole family. I'm sure your Mike was looking down with much pride.

Reflection on Aging

Having recently had a birthday*, I have been reflecting on aging. My memorabilia precedes the '70s but otherwise I like the sentiment   My guess would be pretty darn old, Calvin. This is more rude than funny. Some things can just make you feel old. Like learning to use your new computer -- that makes me feel old and useless! The irony of it is: Might as well just embrace it! * 73 if you are curious

I thought about getting in shape

I mean when clothes start talking to you--   when I was weighed at the last doctor's appointment my reaction was,  "These damn heavy masks." it made the nurse laugh at least. But it's so darn hard! Diets are hard. And so is exercise! Ever notice how much exercise and extra fries sound alike? Sometimes it's just not worth the effort Trust me, this is a real hazard of hot yoga while living alone. Maybe hardest of all is proper attitude
