My 5-month-old grandnephew. My niece shares photos and videos of him daily, for us to follow his progress. He brings smiles to our face every day.

PS. After we got our vaccination updated including TDAP, we were allowed to hold him. That was my wife holding him in the 2nd photo.

Thank you. I wish I could share his baby talk. He makes funny and cute sounds.

On the Wire Mesa trail a couple of weeks ago overlooking the west entrance to Zion. The weather is really nice right now if anyone's looking to take a quick trip.

Nice.We are excited to be going there for the first time ever. We leave Monday for a 6 week road trip and will be in Zion area around April 28th. Hoping to avoid too much heat.

Wow! That is incredible. There is still so much of the western USA that I need to see - and time is short - at 75 - Thanks for sharing and whetting our appetites for travel.

I took this the morning of Motherís Day. My mom died a few years ago. The photo makes me think about how things, friends, family, dogs and everything else move away from us as time passes. This is my long driveway and my dogs are moving at their own pace.

When your photograph fits the mood, you are an artist. Very evocative.

Well here's a pic from a few days ago of DW and I at Glendalough Ireland.



Happier then.


We are now in separate hotels 2+ hours apart, quarantining for COVID. We have a slim chance of making our flights home next week, missing them will be chaos as we are scheduled to finally empty our house and close on the sale June 8th. Health-wise, it is a bit of beat down, but we are recovering by the hour. The real sucky thing is that the tour has moved on and 22 of our friends that we were with are going to enjoy a wonderful weather weekend without us in one of our favorite places on the planet, Dingle.

But, always looking for the positive, we did really have some good times here before testing positive and, dammit, we will be back. DW just retired May 6th, stout travel budget in place, we WILL be back.

Yes, sounds like a bummer and quite a distraction given all the stuff you need to accomplish! Best wishes for quick recovery and safe trip home. Aloha
