I found a photo from some months ago hidden in the internal memory of the camera. I include it now because I like it and I miss them. Sam and family haven't been around much lately due to several bouts of sickness.
|Sam and Kristie|
Sunday was our most recent family fun: meal, football, Wii, raku firing, fellowship.
|Karen and Stephan|
Stephan came directly from northern Michigan from an ice carving competition, obviously tired.
The daughter brought the ham and potatoes. We added pineapple. Yum!
I watched the games and read blogs.
Between games Mike was 'rakuing' in the garage surrounded by an interested audience.
Monday he took a set of newly fired bowls to Chef's and we promptly used them for the delicious potato soup. They match the tureen.
I have no photos for some of the most significant events of this week, like Wally Roth's funeral on Tuesday. It was one of the most memorable services we have ever attended. His life contributions were outstanding and the way he endured six years of ALS so very inspirational. His three sons stood together and paid him a wonderful and emotional tribute.Wally was instrumental in starting the program that gave a computer to the ship, the one Mike installed and operated on the Doulos.
Our Nepali friend is opening a restaurant soon. On a trip to Muncie this week I discovered where it is and snuck in for a peek. Sam is working on some of their furniture.
Friday I went to visit Mother and Dad. He welcomed me with a huge smile and a labored, "Where...did...you appear...from?"
He blessed me with several more huge smiles, but it is impossible to capture them photographically in a timely fashion.
As soon as we got back to the house, however, she had to check the progress of the scrabble games she has going on her iPad.
Like a couple of young folk, we stayed up past our bedtime finding words and waiting for our remote opponents to respond.
This morning I stopped by the newlyweds home before driving back.
Can you see who I visited?
