"Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family." --- Anthony Brandt

Mary's clan
The oldest is closest to Mary and they descend from there.

We had a short but nice stay in Ottumwa.  It isn't often that all of Pat's siblings get together so it was a picture opportunity.  We celebrated all of the events we had missed the past year including Mary's 90th birthday (back in February).

We parked on Mary and Oscar's driveway.  It was perfect, long and flat.  Krikkit was in heaven with real grass and a large yard to roam in, all without being on a leash.  We appreciated the parking spot and more importantly the company.  Thanks Mary and Oscar!  Enjoyed my day out on Tues. Sally and dinner that evening.  We look forward to some travel adventures with you and Mike in the future.


  1. Nice to have a picture you don’t have to photoshop someone in.

  2. If we get our RV in October, maybe we can take our maiden voyage trip and meet at the Grand Canyon.

    1. Sounds good. I didn't think about all of the tabs sending when I made a copy of the Ely to Redwood leg. I was just going to send the first leg so it wasn't too much info.
