Independence Day

Today my Brother, and K and A, left to go home after their annual two-week visit.

After they left, I took the two extra leaves out of the table and the rest of us sat down for dinner.

In the middle of the meal, suddenly, unexpectedly-- even to myself-- I burst into tears. I think I was more tired than I realized, from having three extra people here, and at least one of them a non-kindred spirit.

Tonight, we set off fireworks.
