Some of my happiest times were the summers we shared between your farm and ours. I never did get used to the trains going by, though. Missing you now, thinking about reunions and get-togethers, playing baseball with the Tawneys, beating up on the "older generation", just being outside and "kicking it", as they say now. We'll all be together again some day; save me a spot at the table.....
