Heading for Home

The trip to Vancouver was not a vacation, but I did extend it a bit to spend time with my daughter and it was also nice to see some friends and relatives at the funeral, who I don’t see often.  But early Thursday morning it was time to get on the plane and head for… Continue reading Heading for Home
