But at last, Westin James is here, all 6 pounds of him.
He arrived on September 29, 2017 and we couldn't be more thrilled.
He is our 4th grandchild, and might get a little spoiled, seeing that the others are getting pretty grown up. Thank you Lord, for sending our little miracle!

Because of Facebook, we made plans to visit another school friend, Diane Altman, center, who now lives in New Bedford, MA. We all went to North Attleboro High School, (MA) and graduated in 1964.
Lucky for us, Diane has lived in New Bedford for years and actually is a volunteer who explains a lot of the origins of the historic buildings in New Bedford, and is well-versed in the history of the whaling city.
She was able to show us around the historic district and we had a great tour, ending with a visit to the NB Whaling Museum, which was fascinating! Everything from skeletons from huge whales, to displays of scrimshaw and lots of history of ship-building, wonderful paintings and antiques on display.
We had a nice lunch at an old building, now a pub-style restaurant, which was a bank years ago.

As we walked in, we passed a table occupied by two women who were looking at their menus. We both realized that we recognized one of them from our North Attleboro High School days. (the 1960s!)
With Facebook, we have seen many updates and photos concerning our former school mates, so that made it easier.
They asked us to sit with them, which we did, and caught up on happenings in their lives, other classmates' stories, and their occupations and lives over the years.
Left to right: Jeanne (Gracie) Doucette, North Attleboro, MA; Sheila (Reilly) MacDonald, Orlando, FL, me, Taunton, MA and then Marilyn Kinney Levesque of West Palm Beach, FL.
UPDATE: Sadly, Marilyn on the right, passed on less than 8 months after this accidental reunion. While we were having lunch, she told us of her health problems and that she was awaiting a kidney transplant. RIP Marilyn.
