We enjoyed two weeks driving to New England/New York and home again. 2500 miles in 13 days. We visited with family, retrieved some furniture and other items from the old home place, went to Antietam, Cooperstown, Cape Ann, Old Sturbridge Village, and saw two minor league baseball games. But a most special highlight was visiting with wonderful friends from…well…let’s just say a long way back! Barbara and Nina were my first inspirations in the craft world, when they started to make ceramic beads long ago. Splendid Loon, their business, is still going strong decades later, with Jody’s logistical/technical support. What a great reunion we had!
