P E A C E
It was the best of times (travels in Europe, our first grandbaby), it was the worst of times (G’s operation, the election)…2016 has been quite a year for us, as most of you already know. We began the year by flying from Vienna, where we had stayed for three months, to Lisbon–the most perfect weather in Europe! We spent then one month each in Lisbon, Barcelona, Athens/Andros Island, Dubrovnik/Mlini & Croatian coast, Trieste and Ljubljana. We also spent a little while back in Vienna and then in Munich and Bonn, Germany. We loved it all, and would go back to live in any of these places! But home we came because of this event:
Lyle Albert Boeck arrived on January 13! His family is now happily settled in Denver, having bought a house in Lakewood. Dottie is back to work now as a nurse, and Max continues his teaching at Regis University. We have spent some time there watching the baby grow–he’s got quite a personality already! We’ll be back in Colorado in a few weeks to celebrate George’s dad’s 90th birthday, and then will fly back to Pasadena only to drive back to spend Christmas with them.
In other news: George went in for an angiogram, and ended up with two stents in his arteries, and was good as new the next day. Oh, the wonders of modern medicine! We are so grateful for these miraculous interventions and the great care he received.
Once we return from Colorado, we’re off again! This time we’ll visit Australia, our second home, then take a jaunt down to Mexico, after which we decide whether to visit Puerto Rico or immediately set off for Vienna once more. The aim is to be gone for at least the first 100 days of what will be an “eventful” presidential term, and to see where we might want to settle for the next year. We live in interesting times.
We love all of you, dear friends, and wish only peace, love, KINDNESS, and happiness for all of you in the new year. We will keep you posted on our doings, as I hope you will let us know about your lives.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL OF YOU AND A GREAT 2017!
