After grandson David went back to college, we had another couple of weeks with his brother, Nathaniel. I took the photo below when we went shopping in Tennessee. I sat in the second row of seats, and Nathaniel was in the third row. He draped his long frame over one seat, with his feet touching the front seat. He listened to music, read something on his phone, and had the new skillet in his lap.
He seasoned the skillet that evening by applying shortening and baking it in the oven. The last thing he cooked for us was a batch of cathead biscuits, so called because they were as big as a cat’s head. He said they were a Southern tradition, but I had never heard the term. We skirted the issue by calling them delicious.
Neighbor Logan spent an afternoon with us shortly before school started. He found a 100-piece jigsaw puzzle in the closet.
Although it was a little frustrating for him, he worked it entirely by himself. He was happy to pose for a victory photo.
This last Monday of August was the day David started classes, Nathaniel arrived home, and Logan had his first day of school.
A friend took our son’s picture at Rocky Top in Tennessee on a warm afternoon. That makes a fitting summery/summary photo.
