Summer 2016

A photographic record of whatever leapt out at us

Moments of fun when not riveted to the US electoral shenanigans

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.

Grandson Bill takes command on the lake

Welcome to the lake

"The boys on their playdate" -- Last days in the USA, no thanks to United Airlines

What's next -- evidently we're booked for two weeks in Nov.-Dec. based in Viterbo with day trips throughout the Roman countryside, and Rome itself of course, for part of it with our old friend translator Juan Carlos.
