I’m sorry the pictures have taken so long to get posted. I have been home two and one half weeks and it has been hectic. First, my “lump” ended up to be two and they were just cysts – not cancerous. Second our storage unit was fine but did have a broken lock. Our Chromebook we took with us was determined to be defective. Should have checked it more before we left. I have been extremely busy with work. We are living temporarily with my daughter Lisa and enjoying time with our grandson. He is six and has started wrestling matches. Missed my other grandsons soccer while we were gone but have been able to see my granddaughter participate with her new horse in gaming shows.
I will post about forty pics a day until we get through the trip. I have 3005 pictures but will narrow down to most interesting.
