From Skip and Karen...

It's been a busy summer with many trips back and forth between Connecticut and Vermont. We planted a nice garden in Vermont, with lots of veggies and the yield was pretty good, and will be better next year. Too many long time friends passed away and we did attend several Memorial services. We got to attend a wedding of the son of dear friends from Wilton at an old airport hangar; great fun.

Attended another wedding of the son of my former swim coach in Wilton, this one was in Cape May, NJ and brought back lots of memories of early married years spent with young family on the beach. Visited Skip's grandson at Virginia Tech and got to see the Hokies play football; what a great stadium with 50,000 fans.

Headed to California in October too attend a Marine Corp Reunion and then spend time with my brother, a classmate from high school and college and a former employee of the Wilton YMCA.
