We are now in the depths of winter and have had some inch or so of snow at this writing.

Summer was pretty much a bust and seemed to be one rain storm after another following June. In early June we rented a beach house on Virgina Beach. The weather was perfect, and the beach house was as advertised. In addition to being right on the beach, the house had a pool which was a gathering place for us all. This summer marked our 52nd wedding anniversary and a week at the beach house was an ongoing celebration. A week later after returning home, Babs and I were off to Indiana for a family reunion.

Not long after returning home from the reunion we had notice that Babs uncle had passed away so we made another trip for his funeral.

Later in August we attended Tom's change of command ceremony and his retirement from the Navy and aside for the "senior citizen" church outtings, that sums up our summer travel. Our garden was good this year except for my corn being eaten by (now) fat squirrels. Every time the cobs seemed almost ready to pick, they stripped the cobs clean so there was no corn for our table this year.

So that sums it up for now. We hope your winter is good and safe and you keep warm. As always, if you are in our neck of the woods give a call or send an email, we'd love to hear from you.
