June - E-Day and Graduations

Sometimes things work out. And sometimes they dont. So there's a story about things being wonderful - and a story about a wee disaster (nothing serious).

Good News

The good news is the graduations of our young friends. I attended Commencement at Aptos High School for Nadine and Rebecca on June 4. Lizzie and Siobahn graduated from Lynbrook High School on June 11. Both very nice and dignified occasions. All the young folks have done very well and are looking forward to the challenge of college in August. Congratulations to them all and their prouds parents, families and friends.

Silly News

The silly news is that Sandy and I both managed to injure ourselves out on the trail while having exercise. I needed 5 stitches in my hand. Sandy's going to be in crutches for 8 weeks. And the day was saved by Sandy being resuced by a horse. Unlikely but true.

And while that was going on ........

Ali's been in England visiting the family. I guess there'll be some photos of the grandchildren when she returns.
And coming up....

Western States 100 mile Endurance Run is the last weekend in June and we'll go there to encourage Dennis who will be running in the event.

We're planning a vacation in 2009 with the 'holiday gang' to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, Wyoming. That's going to be a lot of fun. I think I'm beginning to count the days. Apart from public holidays, I've only had 3 days off work in almost a year. Time for a break.

Our son Jamie and his girl-friend Amy are coming to visit us in California in late September for 2 weeks. We're looking forward to that a lot.

And October is the ruby wedding (40th) anniversary of my sister Irene and her husband Robert. We might have a trip to visit them in Houston and we'll probably include stops in the states of Oklahoma,Missouri and Kansas to complete our visits to all 50 of the United States of America.
