Lake Medora From the Air

Last week our great friends Bobby and  Marilyn visited us from their new home  in SC.  Bobby, always up to date with new technologies (and gadgets), took these great pictures from an aerial camera.  Above you see our house, with the dock leading into the lake,   Below are more wonderful pictures of this beautiful spot--but this time seen from a new angle.

Here's our house from another viewpoint:

And here we are at our fire (also courtesy of Bobby):

Family Reunion

This year would have been my father's 100th birthday:  Seymour I. Somberg (1917-1979).  My brother Ben, my sister Sandy, and I wanted to mark this, and because none of our spouses or children or grandchildren had ever met our father, and because none of the children remembered our mother, we decided to have a "family reunion" to try to build some sense of who and what our family was for those who never knew us as the family we used to be.  The site was Lake Medora, with some of the people staying at Jill and Randy's house and some at Tony's and my house.  It was a lot of people who had a lot of fun!

This is (part of) the family we are now;
