    What fun!! Your Mom is awesome. These are great pictures. Can’t wait to see Joey again and to meet little Tilly.

    Oma–what to watch? Words and Pictures, a beautiful movie. What to read? Lila by Marilynne Robinson. Who to listen to? Any recording by Jane Monheit. And maybe Susan Kay aka Mom. Pictures of Tilly and Joey continue to warm the heart. Can’t wait for the introduction. Love from the farm.
