Summer 2011

and the newest generation comes along for a look-see


We’re still semi-retired, on a flexible working schedule, so it's off for eight weeks to Kristin's on the lake in Wisconsin in the USA, a UN Member State which, with all its pluses and minuses, has got the world’s best selections of craft beers. Mainly to meet Young William, a representative from The Future, assuming there is one, and also to re-meet Lowell, a representative from our deep Past running round in circles (vere ovals) in Kansas "back in the day". [Click on the photos to proceed.]

You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Beautiful downtown Féchy ('Upper Féchy' actually) in the vineyards. We moved in in May.

Féchy en fête, September 2011

It's the annual wine festival. Don't drive, take the train, and drink up!

What's next? Kristin's arriving in a few weeks, and then flits off to Ludovica's wedding in Rome. Then we're signed up for two weeks in southern Italy to see the sights in Apulia and Basilicata with Cousin Rob and Elke, and back to Rome for some hectic running all round with Kristin's mom Joellen and spouse. The rest of the winter depends -- as always -- on when the snow comes!
