Settling in

How good it is to be back among family. Everyone came by to say hello. We had put out all the souvenirs from Madagascar and Kenya. First come, first served. The comment from the last - I wish I had come first, so that I could claim everything. Thanks to all of you who helped select the gifts.

Sunday we were welcomed at St. Paul's in Wildwood, MO. Surprise! People recognized us! We felt very welcomed. We found a trombone at a garage sale on the way home.

Karis is in town. She drove down, to leave one car here so they would not have to pull it back when vicarage is over at the end of July. The trombone sort of played "Happy Birthday" as she came in through the door. About 40 years since I have played it.
