    My kids went a few years without seeing their dad, the courts wouldn't allow it. Then two of them went over 5 years without seeing him, voluntarily. I'm glad as adults they've developed some relationship, I think it's good for them. I'm also glad they did wait to be adults.

    Ok - everybody to my house.

    Home-cooked ribs, smoked chicken, garlic mashed potatoes (NOT instant), beans and stuff.

    EZ - we'll even fix up some veggie cabobs or something for you. ;)

    I'll let the cook know there will be a few extras ....

    What time? I just bought loads of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries at farmer's market. I'll pick up an angel food cake!

    Oh, wish you all were closer!

    Well girls, seems Eve is less than an hour and a half from me. More to the point, our family summer home is less than 1/2 hour from her. (How long would it take any of you to get in *** IL area?) I got cottage, fireplace, kitchen, boat, beach, tube and skiis! Hell, if it grew, even have a camper for 4 more people. House sleeps 8. Real problem: 1 bathroom with septic tank. Ewwww
