LaTrek's Annual Riggins Hiking Trip
I've always enjoyed hiking with the Moscow women's hiking group, the LaTreks, and this year I invited my friends, Alyse and Jaymi, to join me. We drove to Riggins and all 22 of us eagerly exited our cars and began the glorious hike up the Rapid River trail....

My sister, Karen, promised me last year, after our trip to Yosemite, that she would take me to the Grand Canyon!  My, oh my, what a gorgeous trip we had.  Pictures actually do no justice to the beauty of this National Park.  We spent three days hiking and w...

Feeling grateful for Don on his birthday
My brother, Don, celebrates his 61st birthday today!  We, older siblings, often tease him about being left behind when he was 6 months old and everyone else in the family hopped into the '51 Lincoln, drove to Illinois, and returned 6 weeks later.  Don giggl...

Christmas, 2016
It seems to me that it takes
weeks to get ready for Christmas and once the day has past the wonderful
memories fade away all too quickly.  There are a few pictures between

In lieu of Christmas letter
Joan gave me a bad time about not writing a Christmas letter this year because, after all, I’m retired and have lots of time to write.   I can think of nothing more appropriate for a Christmas letter than reflecting on the experience of delivering 16 Christ...
