We were happy for them both when our sister Carol married Don.
We didn't know at the time how happy we should be for our self-centered selves.
Now that we've had two Fourths of July at their place on Lake Lanier we're coming to appreciate him even more.
Here are a few photos from 2007.
The big draw, of course, is the swimming. No crabs, sharks, or salt.

One of the things they got to see was the annual boat parade, wherein the people of the lake decorate
their boats and ride around waving, parade-style.
