We are headed to the Airport shortly to pick-up Bernadette’s sister, Alot, who is arriving from Japan. She will be here for two weeks. Alot has been here for Christmas the past several years. She has lived in Japan for about 25 years. Needless to say, Bernadette is all excited for her arrival.

Here is a picture of that old log house Dick wanted. I cut four logs out of the left hand corner that I still have. It was a pretty location then and still is.
