This is from a porch downtown Lititz.  I like the white of the chair against the brick with todays sunlight.

Family Update:  Overnight Thursday, Grandpa had a big turn for the worse.  Friday morning Linda was called to come in and make some decisions.  We agreed to bring in Hospice.  Linda spent the night with him and Grandpa passed away in the morning.  While 87 yrs old he went from pretty robust, walking a mile or two daily, all health issues  under control to 13 days of Covid and he died.  Covid won.    He did two tours in Vietnam and was a proud Army retiree.  He has 2 Bronze Stars, one with an oak leaf.  He earned his military funeral.   
We will be having a small family service in Spring at Fort Indiantown Gap.  

We are now true empty nesters...  The house actually seems oddly quiet.  In 1996 Linda's Mother and step Dad (grandpa) moved into our upstairs apartment because Mom had health issues and needed help.   In 1999 my Mother moved into the back cottage.  For the past 26 years we have been caretaking parents, cooking dinner 4 nights a week, taking them to appointments and generally doing whatever was needed. 
It is hard to believe we are alone in the house...  

Oh, I forgot to say we are feeling better.  Linda still has a bit of a cough but we are out of quarantine.
