Fall trip, 2015, the people we saw
You know, looking at someone’s vacation pictures can be a little boring. I used to work with someone (Miriam) who always wanted to see my vacation pictures and always complained, ‘Martha! You don’t take any pictures of people.” So I thought of her when I decided to post these pictures this way. And organizing them this way, I realized that I left a number of people out. Sorry, we do appreciate everyone who made an effort to come visit us and squeeze into our tight schedule. (Debby and Pat, Carol and Jim and …) For some reason I just did not take as many pictures as I could.
Our neighbor in Virginia, Jane. Little did she realize all those years ago that when we moved next door to them it was a life-long commitment. She is still coming to the airport to pick us up and drop us off.
Ben’s Maryland family, his grand daughter Spring is next to him, her Mom, Maria, is behind him, Patty, Ben’s first wife (one of Spring’s many grandparents) is next and then Ben’s son Chris.

Our friends, BK and Jim on the ends with Ben and Bea in the middle.
My friend from working in state government in North Carolina, Cathy and her daughter Cameron. Scary, I have known Cameron since she was a little girl. Glad to see she has the right taste in beer. (or maybe that was all I had to offer)
Turkey slayer or Turkey fryer? Cousin Bonnie’s husband Pete all dressed to fry Thanksgiving turkey.

Traveling is nice, but sleeping in your own bed with your dog is the best!
