This afternoon, I joined my father for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration for his cousin Peggy and her husband Bud. In a community hall in San Miguel, California, Peggy and Bud’s children and church members planned a lovely afternoon celebrating a half century of marriage.
It was a pleasure to meet them. Of course, I went into documentation mode, snapping photos like a mad man, and I’ll share all the images with them.
Tomorrow, I hope to see my great aunt Ruth, who I only met once when I was a year old. She is frail, in her nineties, and lives on the olive ranch with Peggy and Bud out here in San Luis Obispo county.
