I love my cousins!

A couple of my dear cousins came to visit me last week. It was a last minute, middle of the day visit that lasted late into the night. It's amazing how sharing the same grandparents and great aunts can bond people for life. Even though we rarely see each other, I know I could count on any one of my many cousins if I ever needed anything. Sitting on my couch, and sharing photos and stories brought me back to a simpler time in life. Ahhh. I guess my age is showing. It's hard to imagine a time before cell phones and computers. Technology has completely changed our social life. That is why it was refreshing to hang out in person and spend a carefree day visiting.

And I must say, I was quite impressed with the beautiful fruit plate that my cousin brought with her!

I am  so sorry that I have neglected Patti's Plate as long as I have. I've just been in a self indulgent pity party mood. I hope to slowly resurrect myself, but I am not going to promise daily writings. Suffice it to say, "Patti has had a lot on her plate lately."
