More from the graduation weekend. Matthew and Chrissy, the oh-so proud Mom
They grow really big in the South. Matthew and Nicky.
Then it was on to New Orleans, with the main purpose of visiting the WWII Museum.
Julie and Robert joined us, then were the perfect Southern hosts for a few days in Lake Charles, but I was so relaxed that I'm sorry to report no pictures were taken.
Just in case we were home too long, we hooked up Homer and went to Portland so Al could finish the new deck on Giano's house. Almost finished. Pretty good work for an old fart.
Mike and Carol Ann met us in Lincoln City, on the Oregon coast, where everyone but Al had a glass blowing session. It was so much fun.
Crank your head to the right to see the paperweight Steve, my instructor and I made. He was so good at making me think I was doing it, when really he was totally in charge. I want to do more, but it's kind of expensive to buy that fire pit and a kiln. Darn.
