I'm so glad I attended the DAR District Regents Luncheon on Thursday. Not only was it great to see friends, have a lovely lunch (seafood manicotti), but the memorial for deceased members of the club was held. Although I am not a member of the chapter now, a memorial was held for my two dear friends one who was regent prior to me and one following me was held. I am so glad that I was there for that. Friday, Tyler was here. He was so much fun and interested in toys, puzzles, how things worked, and a storybook. Saturday the genealogy conference was held. John Philip Colletta was the speaker and he was outstanding. He is such a great story-teller and as a result he was so engaging. He gave four talks and the conference was from 9 to 4. As always, I am a soft touch when it comes to buying books and there were a lot of book vendors there on Saturday.
