Hello All


I guess we’d better get started on this trip.  People in Naperville have been saying “Are you guys still here!”  All of our possessions are wrapped up into 225 tidy boxes with a few pieces of furniture.  We are free of a house.  We traded in our bogus movers for a seemingly reliable company and our stuff goes in Colorado storage next week.  Thanks to all of you who have helped us out of the moving mess!  We wanted to get as trim as Kay and Arnie for Greece.  But we had to finish off all the food in our house before we left!

We enjoyed Dan and Nan’s delicious corn salsa and fresh raspberries for our first trip meal.  We hoped to see fireworks from the sky, but it figures that we flew over Canada! 

So here we are on  our Dublin, Ireland layover.  We caught a bus into the city center to go windowshopping and people watching in the drizzling rain.

OK so now we are in Greece.  We have met up with Kay and Arnie.  We walked around the Acropolis area eating feta cheese and chocolate crepes.   It is warm and balmy.  People are everywhere and music is playing.  It’s way past my bedtime, but what a way to go! Tomorrow we hit the ferries and the islands.  Please keep in touch!

    Wow! I am so impressed! The Roses meet high-tech… I am in awe of your website and blogs, I’m guessing Matt had a little helping hand getting you started. Looks fantastic! And I can’t wait to travel vicariously thru you just as your friends mentioned as well.

    Have a wonderful time and safe travels! Hi to Kay and Arnie too!

    Love you,

    p.s. Is the misspelling of “WECOME to our weblog” at the top of the page intentional or with a Chinese accent or something? 🙂
