#180 Cousins

Today 1st cousins found each other, John Troyer and Katie (Miller) Weaver. John's father and Katie's mother were siblings. My Grandma was an older sibling and so these two are my Dad's cousins.

#179 Big Brother/Little Sister

 I met these children outside of Yoder's Restaurant tonight. In January I met this family for the first time outside Big Olaf. That time she had blue lips from eating blue ice cream and today the blue lips come from a sucker. Beautiful children.

#178 Jockey Sam's Katie

Last week my Mom's cousin Amos, Mary and her husband Andy stopped in for a visit. Today Dad's cousin Jockey Sam's Katie gave me a visit. Katie's mother Mary was my grandmother Susanna's youngest sister. I will say it again, I love when I meet up with my parents' cousins, because it connects me with that generation.  My Troyer Mommy had only two sisters. They were Sharp Atlee Katie and Jockey Sam Mary. I don't know how many brothers these three sisters had but there were lots of them.

#177 A Broken Wing

These butterflies or moths, whatever they are called were in abundance at the park today. I tried to get a good shot of one but was impossible until I came to this one with a broken wing. It could still fly but stayed much longer in one spot rather than flit from place to place. Such is life for humans, butterflies and birds.

#176 - Looking Over Today's Work

Larry Yoder thought he was the first one on the job site this morning, but I arrived a bit before he did. I was prepared to take lots of photos and I didn't want to miss anything. I plan to post more on the Pinecraft-Sarasota blog after I pick and choose and edit the photos I want to use.

#175 Weather

I would be okay if we would have this kind of weather all winter long, no jackets and sweating during the day and a low 70 at night. I know it is too warm for the Snow Birds coming down but we will take it as it comes.
