Hello Sebastian!

Dear Sebastian, This is the first post in your new blog.  You probably don’t know you have a blog now, but some day, when you’re older, you’ll know.  Right now blog is probably just a funny word you don’t understand.  That’s OK. Your Grandmas decided you needed your own space.  Or, I guess more accurately,Continue reading “Hello Sebastian!”

Karen and I have been looking at houses in Champaign/Urbana online.  For those of you who’ve been asking, and maybe for some of you who don’t know as of yet that this is going on… we are moving to Illinois.  Why?  Well, it’s pretty simple.  Mary and Martin, and our grandson Sebastian, are moving toContinue reading “Illinois?

Getting Ready for England

Just got a call from my doc’s office with the numbers from the blood draw yesterday.  All were really good, except my white count was 3.2.  That number isn’t bad at all in and of itself, but it puts it in the range where my maintenance dose is reduced to half.  This has happened aContinue reading “Getting Ready for England”

The Eye

The Eye, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Thought I’d randomly post a photo I took in London in May. The London Eye is a photographers dream. Interesting structure, loads of different perspectives, and it’s situated in a fantastic spot. We’ve been home now for almost a month. I’m missing traveling this morning. Feeling nostalgic about ourContinue reading “The Eye”

Lancaster Canal

Lancaster Canal, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The canal runs through the town and for miles beyond. It’s a significant waterway and is used by a large population of people who live on their boats. The walk along the canal is lovely and the boats that pass are way cool.
