This has been a busy year
travel wise, with lots of memorable events.
We had two family weddings, two graduations,
a 40th birthday party, family visits to our
place in New Hampshire, and a couple of
vacations for Inger and me.
We put our house in Connecticut
market this year, finally deciding that we
just couldn't be in two
places enough to
enjoy them both. The gardens in CT required
more up-keep than Inger had time for.
We bought a condo for our
and are in the process of up-dating it.
We enjoy our time in CT, but we expect
to spend most of the year in New
where our life is very active with new friends
and lots to do.
Son Rob and Kate Freas were married
San Marcos, California in July. Kate is
a wonderful gal. She has been
part of our family for about six years.
Kirsten Traul (Inger's daughter)
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at a ceremony
in New York City in June. Here with husband Don.
We had three days in NYC with all of the Oldhams
to celebrate the occasion.
Inger and I went to Italy in
and had a great time. Here we are at the
Trevi fountain in Rome.
We finally bought a used tractor,
with my other important means of transportation.
This John Deere tractor has a much needed bucket
in front and a backhoe (not attached at the time of
this picture). It will be great to have a tractor to
do the heavy work around our place.
