Balloons from Pam P.

Hi Sue -
While you were enjoying the fall colors in New England, we were enjoying New Mexico's famous Balloon Fiesta. 
 It was one of the most impressive things
we've ever seen in our journeys. 
 I highly recommend it to our fellow Peeps!

The Colors of New England!

We spent a long day yesterday (Friday, Oct 7) touring Camp Sagamore (the Vanderbilt summer camp) and oohing and aahing over the spectacular Autumn colors.

 Fort Ticonderoga on Thursday. 
We are full to bursting with history.

The Artist!

Last weekend Catherine competed in the Indiana Plein Air "Brush of Fall" event in Converse, Indiana.  Artists from all over the mid-west met at a small, rural community in north-central Indiana for a painting competition.  
About 75 artists competed.  Entries had to be painted that day in the open air.  Catherine entered one painting.  While she did not win an award, she did sell eight paintings to collectors attending the event (the most of any of the artists).

She was absolutely ecstatic.  
In the evening Catherine and Bob attended a "Garden Party and BBQ" at a large farm owned by the hosting artist.

Tears, again!

It is with great sadness that we received word from Joey's daughter, Laurie, that Joey was "resting in peace" at 9 pm last night (her birthday).  We are thankful that neither Joey or Barry no longer suffer any further and that they are together again. 
 We can just remember the goodness they shared and the warm memories that will live in our hearts.
  Thanks you for all of your thoughts and prayers in their support.
Hugs & God Bless to All!

Kennibunk, Maine

Waiting for the Lobster Cruise in Kennibunk...thirsty work!
 Bush compound.  Barbara and 41 must be napping.

 Caught three lobsters in a demo trap.  Kinda small.

The black dots are lobster eggs,
 soon to be a dinner in, oh, 7-9 years.

Not sea sick, just frozen.  Amazing how cold 65 degrees
can feel on the ocean!

I have a whole lot of pictures in Jim's camera.  If he could only figure out how to get them to me!!! Camera has him flumoxed!
