It’s Grandparents’ Day at the Paradise Senior Living complex in Fox Lake.  This event is wonderful every year.  Basic ingredients:  DJ playing golden oldies, teen age beauty contest winners, an antique fire truck to climb into, a giant parrot, red-and-white checkered table cloths, white tents, good food and everybody’s favorite caricature artist. Well, that’s what it feels like.  People line up as soon as I get there.  Mutual admiration.  This is certainly one of my favorite annual events. Look at this couple cracking up when they first see the drawing!

Oh, and a crisp, sunny, early fall Sunday afternoon. Lucky every year!
