I believe we are coming into fog season. I am getting a lot of warnings on my phone about the dense fog and how much visibility we have. How did we ever survive without the phone warnings?

Cheryl and Lee Welch — who spend the winter in Hopetown, Bahamas — have enjoyed having their three granddaughters visiting for a week of sun, fun and eating out at great restaurants. Willa, Josie and Beatrice are now back on Vineyard with Dad Sean Welch and they miss them. Cheryl and Lee will be home soon and will get to see all the grandchildren they missed while they were away.

Gail Gardner has returned home after spending school vacation in Hawaii where her daughter Amelia is living. Gail got some down time while Amelia worked in the morning and got to spend some quality time with her.

Paula Dello Russo and her daughters Ruby and Violet had a great adventure for school vacation. They flew to Paris and spent a week going to all the attractions and eating all the best pastries and chocolate. They even went to Disneyland Paris. What an experience for all and wonderful memories.
