    Good to hear from you. Not that I deserve your reports. I am still EVP of Offpriceshow. One orig. wife and 2 great grandsons. I live in Boynton Beach, Fl. (seems like paradise) I go now, continue your Marco Polo tales.


  7. We have been wondering where you have been. We had computer trouble and I ended up getting a new one after losing contacts and emails. Our year hasn’t been quite as exciting but we were still able to travel. We made two trips to Hawaii for pleasure and maintenance on our two condos, a trip to Virginia and Washington, D.C. to see my oldest daughter and family, a trip to Austin Texas to see my youngest daughter and family, a trip to Arizona to visit my parents (dad is 92 and mom is 88) and finally the cruise on a tall clipper ship that had been in the plans for 1-1/2 years from Barbados, the grenadines, Grenada, Isla marguerite, Isla blanquilla off the coast of Venezuela, Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire, Cartagena, San blas islands, and a day through the Panama Canal ending in Panama City for a glorious 14 day adventure. Then as if we were not already crazy, we moved to a large house 2 miles from our condo here in Medford, Oregon in December of all times. Needless to say it was a quiet Christmas and new year. We leave for a month in Belize January 9 and then 2 trips to Hawaii this year. (One for maintenance and the other for a family reunion with my Denver cousin. I am sure I will need to go east again now that both daughters and their families are now both in Richmond Virginia area and a couple of trips to Arizona to check on the parents. We found this new house quite by accident and fell in love all over again. We have lots of space so if you ever come up to the northwest again, give us a call. Best to you for the new year and a new adventure.
