I just wrote a note to my cousin in Colorado. I told her how I sometimes wish that life was still like it was years ago. People used to grow up in one town, then live the rest of their lives within 20 miles. Now, my family is spread from Florida to Massachusetts to Colorado. We have Bill's parents within 1 1/2 hours. It is great to see them so often. Everyone else we see (if we are lucky) once a year. Some family, I have not seen in 5+ years. It makes me sad, but with the Internet we at least have instant communication and the ability to send pictures.
Here is a picture of my Aunt Caryl and Uncle Mac with their new granddaughter, Emily. I have not met Emily yet, but I did see Aunt Caryl and Uncle Mac on 12/31/05.
