We had a family dinner on the deck this evening. The temperature was in the low 80's with a slight breeze which made it very enjoyable. Sadie was the center of attention and even learned a few new words. I grilled Brots that Jon's had brought home from their day in Lincoln. We also had potato salad from Pac n Sav, baked beans, kraut, chips, etc. It gave Elaine a break from cooking and dish washing with the paper plates going into the garbage. Jon found a couple old hard back "History of Seward County" books by W.W. Cox. The first one is dated 1888. We have had "reprints" of Coxs' early history, but this one is pretty special. He got them at the "Bluestem Book Store" on 9th street. We are doing a lot of family visiting.
