Ho! Ho! Ho!

Merry Christmas!

From Our House to Yours....

Hee Hee! The Biltmore was a great stop on the way to Hilton Head Island.

It's Never Too Late...

...to fulfill your dreams. Thank you to all who supported me, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Team-in-Training... 4 months of winter training and voila', Darryl completed his first century ride, 100 miles around Lake Tahoe in America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride.

Hiked the Grand Canyon, biked Lake Tahoe...what's next? Anyone want to join me?

Myrtle Beach in February

We be "chillin' on the beach" with our Aussie cousins and good friends the Comas'. Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina...eatin', drinkin', golfin', and slurping oysters!

Hilton Head in July

A stop in Asheville, NC, to visit the Biltmore and then on to HHI to meet sister Colleen and husband John. Lots warmer than February and more eatin', drinkin', golfin', and beachin'! Vacation highlight...learning about loggerhead turtles and seeing a nest get relocated to protect the eggs from drowning at high tide.
