It being Memorial Day Weekend and my wife being one of twelve DaFermo kids, it seem appropriate that we would do a five state road trip this weekend attending a birthday party for 47 year old brother-in-law in Warrenton VA and 50 year old brother-in-law in Greencastle PA. Next year, the family reunion is in Colorado. The Catholic priest from the Greencastle parish attended the second birthday party and was shocked to learn that Martin Luther translated the Bible into German. The Italians make spaghetti the first course while the Irish, at least at this second party, made spaghetti the last course. It was a relaxing weekend and because I somehow twisted my back, I was able to read several chapters of Protestant Thought in the Nineteenth Century by Claude Welch in the hot tub while supervising the cooking on the grille.
Today, back in Wallingford, we ate lobsters with Lancers. A delightful end to a special weekend.
