It was a big change for him to sell the house in Stratham and pack up the home he shared with my Mother in law for so many years. We are thrilled to have him near us and we settled in to a nice routine.
To break up the year we took a big family trip on a river cruise in Europe. All could come except Pam and Ralph, including Bud's sister Jeanne. We all had a great time visiting Budapest where we departed from, and traveling up the Rhine and Mein to Amsterdam ultimately. Castle ping pong was a highlight of the tour, and the locks and bridges were impressive to say the least.
