Madame X and I arrived home from our New England vacation in time to take my Dad and his good friend Beverly to a private event we co-hosted -- wine-tasting, dinner and dancing (to Sid V and the Human Resources) at Park Farm Winery, outside Bankston, Iowa, about 20 minutes west of Dubuque. About 30 people attended.
The next morning, Saturday, Dad got reacquainted (after more than a year) with great-granddaughter Claire and was introduced to his other great-granddaughter Lise.
Andy and Josie came over from Madison, and that evening we (that includes Claire, Lise and their parents) enjoyed a cookout.
It was a great wrap-up to my vacation. Now, back to work!
