36a-Summer Break: Uncle Sammy & Aunt Kathie’s Vacation in Italy

We’re going on Summer Break for the month of August.  The continued heat and humidity do not encourage reading and discussion of family history.  Instead it is a time to live through each day as leisurely as possible.  It’s also a time to dream away the hot days.  An afternoon nap after a swim or cool shower is a good way to pass the hottest hours in the afternoon.

During this Summer Break we’ll post photos of travels, day trips or staycation activities.  There may also be photos from our family album along with some pleasant memories to share.  The content of our postings will be more visual and not require much on the part of our readers.  We hope they will provide a few minutes of escape from the heat and a prompt to remember pleasant vacation  and summertime memories from your own family life and travels.

Uncle Sammy and Aunt Kathie are currently on a tour of Italy.  Here are some of the photos of the places visited in the last 10 days.
