Well, for the record, July was icky.  Three of us Voights came down with a virus that almost did us in!  Randy made it through with just a glancing blow.  So I skipped July 2016.  Now it is August and we have been celebrating!

The youngest Willett grandchild, of 12, graduated this month from Arkansas Tech.  Whew, all grandchildren made it through college, which would certainly of pleased the grandparents.

Bucky graduates!

Next, Randy and I celebrated 32 years of marriage.  We did have the waiter take a photo but it didn’t turn out too well, so I am also skipping that.  You just have to trust that it happened, even without a photo.

Emily was next on the celebration list.  She had a birthday last week and by all accounts, it was a good one.  Let’s take a look through the years:Untitled - 39
