Greetings From Sunny Aruba!

Hi guys,

All's well on the Caribbean front. We were walking through a hotel's grounds looking at a restaurant for a future dinner and saw parrots all over the place. When the handler saw me taking pictures, he rounded up the birds and posed us for some pictures.

Can't wait to bring my grandson here next week.

Home Again

Hello All:

We're back from our vacation and are facing geography and meteorology shock. After spending two weeks wearing one or two articles of clothing 90% of the time, we are freezing our butts off and looking forward to a major snow storm Wednesday.

Nonetheless, we had a great time with our 3 YO grandson, DD and SIL.

Andy, great pictures and I hope the memories keep you warm in whatever weather you are having. We don't have snow, but it isn't typical Florida either. We are wearing coats, too.
