Stan and Dorothy have returned from their yearly trip to California to visit their son, Mitch and then took a fifteen day cruise around the Hawaiian Islands. The weather was a bit warmer than here at home. It was a lovely trip, but after three weeks it was great coming home. Getting home from Logan airport took as much time as flying across country due to a road accident and holiday traffic.
Mary and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a joyful and healthy New Year!
