I hope anyone who is reading this is safe and well.
On April 10, 1946, Barbara and Irving registered the purchase of the old Spencer farm above Howe Brook, on a little-traveled back road above Route 100. Normally we would celebrate this event, even if only because the people who live here and have lived here like celebrations. There have been something like 13 babies born to "Quarry Hill Kids," now grown up, over the last 2 years-- and most likely more to come. I would love to see all those babies again-- some for the first time! Fortunately, we were able to have most of the babies who had been born come to the 2018 summer gathering. Gorgeous babies, all of them!
I had a chance to sit down on the grass near the Pond with some of the young women and their babies and admire them. Oscar, son of Violet and Chris, was in my house for a bit with his dad and we had fun-- he's a Leo and a great entertainer!
Will we have a chance to have all of the "Kids" and their kids together again soon? I hope so. Eventually, I believe and hope, it will be possible, especially if people meet outdoors-- something we can't do in Vermont's frozen February.
