Dear Family and Friends,

Now that we have sold our house we are blessed with time on our hands.  We still have about two weeks before we go to Minnesota.  Here is what we have been up to lately.


Heidi, Bryce and Cannon.  Heidi and Cannon live here in Richland, Washington.  Bryce lives in California.  Bryce was here for a few days when we arrived.  I am so thankful that Kylie came to visit while we were here.

Cannon showing me his dental accomplishments:

These are things we miss living so far away.

As soon as we sold our house, Chuck and I went to a seafood buffet to celebrate.  We ate our fill of dungeness crab.

One day I had lunch with my friends from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, where I used to work.  We have had several dinner invites and it is so great to see everyone again.

And, of course, shopping at Walmart.  Notice that the sign, over the door, stating low prices is now missing.  Uh oh!!

This next picture is for Nancy Hamm. Today, Chuck and I went to the Hispanic grocery store.  I found that it is indeed possible to buy chicken feet here.  You just have to know where to look.  Cut their toe nails off and chicken stock ever. 

This weekend we are driving to Portland, Oregon, a favorite northwest city of ours. 

Staying busy but really missing Cuenca.



  1. LOVE the feet! Great picture.
    I'm planning to make more feet broth later today. I'll be thinking of you.
    Love, Nancy
