Return


I got back last night. There's no place like home. There's no place like home. Air travel does not agree with me, but seeing family does. Business determined my trip, but I was able to see family and even enjoy a Christmas ritual or two.
My sister and her husband do Christmas very well. Their beautiful house was scattered with stacks of Christmas books; Christmas music from the last four centuries. Sister supplied plates and bowls of pfeffernusse and gingerbread men. Brother-in-law made a fire in the fireplace. Nephew and his girlfriend selected a tree, which I helped to decorate. Cats (named China and Asia) played an endearing game of depositing numerous badminton shuttlecocks on my bed each night as feline love offerings. A 1,000 piece puzzle in the common room kept conversation running. It was lots of fun.
I'm late for work, so this is a sketch from a photo of nephew's girlfriend. Maybe I'll finish it tonight.


Thank you for the many good wishes for travel.
