Things I was happy/amazed to see

The metro stop at Spring Hill near Tysons Corner in northern Virginia.  Should be open in 2014.  Never thought we would see this completed.  And, it is not that ugly.

A valentine that my friend Jeannie and I had made for our friend Roberta, probably in 1968 or 69.

Somehow, Jeannie and I smuggled props (some of which involved liquor and champagne glasses) to some place where there was one of those photo booths.  We took 4 strips of pictures.  Two of them  Jeannie and I were together and the other two were individual.  This is my individual one.

But this is all Jeannie’s handwriting.  Not mine

LEAVES!  We don’t have this many in Italy.  I had forgotten how they smell too.

Celebrating the season in Oxford, NC.  Our friends tell us that there are usually 10 to 12 trees decorated in this house.

Oh, come on, you know they were going to show up somewhere.  I had them several times.  And bought a 2014 Krispy Kreme Calendar.

The house I used to live in, where the two cars are parked on the left.  My grandmother lived in the white house.

Some of my belongings that are stored/living at Jim and BK’s house.  The oriental panel is mine.
