Ivoryton, Connecticut – Day 10

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 17th visiting with my family.

Mary has finally returned to her home in California. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 16th.

Yesterday morning my family  and I went to the Essex Veterans Memorial Hall for Father’s Day breakfast. A nice time. They gave me cards with a $50 Barnes and Noble Gift Card enclosed. Thank you, family.

Ivoryton is a pleasant little village. According to the below Wikipedia link…There is not a single town, city, or place named Ivoryton anywhere else in the world.

Today some photos of downtown…

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

My oldest son was the first of my children to have a child. I was so surprised how much I enjoyed seeing my son be a father and watching his children grow.  Celebrating Father’s Day this year with he and his family was a special treat for me since we live a state apart.  His oldest will be headed off to college in a couple of months and we all feel the shift in our lives as we remember early childhood and now the prospect of the first one leaving home.

We spent time  in the pool and played cards. Ken barbecued flank steak that had been marinated for 24 hours. Laurie made a fresh corn salad and Ken’s favorite cake. His boys bought him a video he had been wanting to watch.

We looked at a family photo album, did some reminiscing. In this hot climate, staying inside or near the pool is everyone’s favorite option.

After dessert we watched The Presidents Speech, an excellent movie on video. What is the normal way to celebrate Father’s Day?  Not sure what that might be. It’s all about family. Father’s are always special and we honor the work and guidance and loyalty that a father represents.  We remember our fathers past and are glad to celebrate those that are still with us.  Beautiful.
