Yes to visit son no3 and his partner.  Son no2 was there as well and son no1 and my grandson visited the day before.  Son no 4 is visiting on Sunday.  This afternoon I am visiting my gardening friend with the exotic small garden.  His tithonias are in full flower.  Looks like a fine day for it.  No rain at present.
