I’ve been all a-flutter wrapping up a four-week trip visiting family in Kentucky — and am heading home to Massachusetts this morning. Four weeks without my dear family and my dear Astro! But it was wonderful to see my Mom and Dad and brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews and Aunt Mary Anne and Uncle Bob and cousin Timmy and Kris and more. Above: Me and my siblings – except for the youngest, who must have yet been a twinkle — in vintage silhouettes circa 1969. Still hanging in the family hallway.
