More on the Graduation Party

(Joliet, IL) Hi 76 Lo 48 -- We said our goodbye's last night to Frank and his family, they left to return to the St. Louis area early this morning. We got home too late last night to post pictures of our step-granddaughter Ellice's graduation party.

Over 70 people came. We were thankful for the great weather.

We didn’t do much today. It was windy but very pleasant so we both took a walk around the park. We also watched the NASCAR race, and Jim switched back and forth between the race and the Memorial golf tournament. Nice to see Tiger back on the winning track. Tonight we'll finish up the mini-series Hatfields & McCoys. We've enjoyed it so far.
