Time Passes Quickly

Wedding Quilt
Wow, it's already the middle of September and today there is a hint of Fall in the air.  It's difficult to believe that I've been retired 5 weeks already. I haven't been very productive, or at least not as much as I had hoped.  The good thing is that I only have to live up to MY expectations and I can increase or decrease those on a whim. So what is going on in my life?  I finished the wedding quilt for my sister-in-law.  I was disappointed that it turned out much smaller than I had hoped, but I do love the quilt.  It's bright, fun and meaningful.  In the corners it has embroidered "love", "faith", "hope" and "joy".
Dr. Steven & Robyn Murray
Robyn and Steven's intimate wedding was beautiful. It was held at the Pillow Thompson House in Helena, one of the Victorian houses preserved in all it's glory. I wish Robyn and Steven a lifetime of happiness and joy.

Of course all things in life are not joyful.  Butch lost his oldest and dearest friend, George Collins, on Monday.  In August, his high school had a all class reunion and George was able to attend.  Back in the day five friends had a band called The Gallows.  Fortunately, all the living members were in attendance.  From all accounts it was a wonderful reunion and everyone was so grateful that George was able to be there, perform and swap stories with longtime friends!
