We spent three wonderful weeks in Brush Prairie with JoAnn. The pictures of touring the campus of the University of Portland with Sarah have been lost some where in space. It is a beautiful old campus overlooking the Columbia River with all its activity. Sarah will be pursing a nursing career there for the next four years. There are only 3000 students.

Big Fish

We may have left Texas but we have the ORIGINALS with us on the North Carolina range ...just off Quarry Road.

The pond is small. We have about 30 voracious eaters each day.

We are on our way to feed our Koi.

Yes, We live in a barn.

Longboat Key Condos and white beach

Ken is helping Bill set up his "office" on the beach. Bill spends hours here with his books, camera and binoculars to look for dolphin and birds and boats and parasailers and on and on.

This one needs some explaining. Frances bought all of us these "Florida beach" tops and we are modeling them. Besides the sisters Pat Burns from England joined us for tea.

Florida in May

Brother Tom, his wife Mary, Frances, Libby and Ken and Bill and Mary enjoyed a rare time when the four siblings and spouses were together. Charlie didn't make it and we missed him. It was a time to enjoy each other and Biedermann's beautiful condo right on the Gulf on Longboat Key, FL. I do believe it is one of the most beautiful, restful spots on the globe. Thanks Biedermanns for a great time.

Memorial Day

Opening prayer and comments by NC Supreme Court Justice Paul Newby

It is dark but you can see one of the several sitting areas.

Tea cups hang on the antler chandlier. On the right you can barely see the dining room table. The kitchen is hidden by the chandelier. The ropes for the swing are seen on the left of the chandelier. The black thing is the heating/air conditioning duct.

Up, up we go. There is no hay in this loft.

The rest of the barn

We will tour the main room and up to the loft where Scott and Deborah have their bedroom and bath and then have a look down at the center of all activity.

A look inside the barn. Our new home.
