Navigation “lessons” and Gettysburg

While we were in New York visiting Sonia, Doug, and Liam, our youngest son Gregory mentioned that for my birthday he would like to get me a tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. I had wanted to go there forever, and in truth was planning to go after New York anyway, so this all worked out…

Birthday with the Mister

This weekend we had a house guest. Not our first, but arguably our cutest. Friday evening, all day Saturday, Saturday night and the beginning of his birthday on Sunday, Liam stayed with us in Charlie.
