Remembering the Saturday nights when I was a kid in the 1960s-1970s when Yahtzee and Cards and Rummy were played in the kitchen.  
And the 1976 trip to western states and national monuments and family.  Many good memories with Grover and Delores, Judy and Gary, Helen and Henry..that trip was when I first heard Uncle Henry called (Chuck) by his sister.   Miss all my Aunts and Uncles...Dad and Mom..that generation has finished it’s History book.
