A belated Merry Christmas to our wonderful family and friends.  We wish you a very happy and prosperous 2017.

December has been a bit of a bust.  Dean twisted his knee so was out of commission for a couple of weeks.  Thank goodness he is back on track and feeling so much better.

It has also been the rainiest December in several years in southern California.  I think we might start renting ourselves out as rainmakers. Last December we were in Miami and they had the rainiest December in history in our area.

One highlight was a visit with Deans cousin Candace and her husband Lennard.  I first met Candace in 1972 when she stayed with us for a few day when we lived in Madrid, Spain.  We are all still smiling so life is good.

This was our first house we bought together.  We lived in this handsome abode for several months as we travelled North Africa and Europe.

We have lived in other tents and campers since then but we do love our present house the best.  As long as the wheels are rolling we are happy.
