Merry Christmas 2023

It’s that time of year when I usually get in the mood to design my Christmas cards and get them mailed out, followed by putting up the tree. But, everything is running late, mostly due to the intermittent trips in our class B motorhome totaling 6 weeks. I’m not complaining, having enjoyed our trip to Perry, Georgia for a large RV rally; a week in Greenville, Ohio for a smaller Rally in June; 2 weeks in July in South Bend, Indiana having our solar upgraded from 200 watts to 600 watts and upgrading our batteries to 600 Ah and camping in a parking lot; a couple more days in South Bend getting a soft start installed on the RV air conditioner; a few days in Michigan honoring the memory of our brother-in-law, Gary; and a week in Pigeon Forge with friends. 

The pictures aren’t in chronological order but are as pictured, Greenville, Ohio Rally in June; Pigeon Forge in October; Cadillac, Michigan in September; South Bend, Indiana in July; and Perry, Georgia in March.

We discovered that I can and will drive ten hours to get from point a to point b if necessary. I did it on Labor Day after tripping over the dog in the driveway while packing the van. It’s better now, but at the time, well it made it difficult to bend my right knee. 

Bernard broke his left big toe after missing the step in the RV, or at least injured it bad enough so that when he hit the end of the bed broke it. It was a long time healing, but he’s finally healed now. We discovered that we got really behind on leaves and other chores. Oh the joys of home ownership!

Sara participates in National Novel Writing Month in November and took some time off work and stayed at a state park cabin and met the goal of 50,000 words.

In 2022, Andrea got her bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. This year she started her Masters coursework. She also adopted a new dog, two year old Honey, much to the chagrin of Sara’s three cats. Fortunately, Honey gets along with Andrea’s dog Raz and our dog, Champ. Our cat, Mouse, tolerates her to lick her face. Champ and Honey both love to play and chase each other.

That’s what is new in our house this year. We hope y’all have happy holidays!

Anne & Bernard
