Off to Germany

Chapter Three is about to begin.  Gregg and I are off to Germany in a couple of hours so that we can attend our niece's wedding.  We will be celebrating with her and the rest of our family for two weeks in the Black Forest.  

Gregg took this photo of me in Williamsburg, Virginia, last Tuesday.  It reminds me of the Cheshire Cat happy to be in conversation with a rather handsome statue of Thomas Jefferson. Our English friends were doing a little souvenir shopping in a store behind us.   We also attended father-in-law's last WWII shipmates reunion.  After having them for the last 40 years it was decided last year that this would be the final one.  A very sweet ending to a very special gathering of friends who had become like family.  

Yesterday we said goodbye to everyone and traveled north so that we could drop our English friends off at the airport.  They will be home now.  We had a great time with them, with all, lots of stories, laughter and comradeship.  I haven't had time to do any of the photos but will post more when we get back from Germany.

My visits may be nonexistent for a while but in the meantime I have scheduled posts to appear regularly, which I hope you will visit and enjoy.   I'll be back in a few weeks.
