My daughter says I have neglected my blog badly. I have but it has been a very busy year.
Carolyn had surgery in March and I came back to the US for that. Dave and I visited Florence and the Cinque Terre region of Italy in May. Daniel announced he was engaged to his long-time girl friend Lauren and they were getting married in Hawaii in June, 2011. Dave and I along with Brother Paul visited London and Weybridge in July, and I came back to the states in July and went to see Carolyn in Shreveport for a week, went to Artist Expo for a week, and then onto Clinton, Mass. for an icon painting class and then finally to Spokane to visit my in-laws. Before I got there Carolyn announced she was pregnant with our first grandchild .
The day we got back to Doha, we found out Kevin had totalled the Civic and our son-in-law gave him his car to get back to university in Ohio. We went to Madrid and Barcelona, Spain in September.
Now I am in Houston helping a friend of mine at the International Quilt Market and Festival and looking at my hometown of Houston with different eyes. When I get back to Doha, I will post some pictures I took near downtown.

Back in the states

My son Kevin has been wanting me to update my blog. I have been in the US since March 2. My daughter Carolyn had surgery and I came to the states to help. When we came back to Shreveport I took a class with Cheri Rol in New London. I really enjoyed it and then it was a six hour trip to Georgetown where my parents live, and life has been very slow this week. I will be leaving here tomorrow to see my sister Nancy and then unto The Woodlands to spend a day with our former next door neighbors, and then back to Doha on Monday, March 29.

More Austria Pictures

These are pictures taken at the Hotel Kartase where my son Kevin is at for fall semester. It was an old monastery that was remodeled in the 80's and where the Franciscan students can attend one semester during university

Hi from Doha in Novmeber!!

Hi from Doha,
I have not been able to post until now. I have been taking driving lessons to hopefully pass my second attempt at the driving test. My second test is November 18th. Dave did not pass his either and the next test is supposed to be December 9th.
We have been traveling. We went to Austria to visit our youngest son, Kevin who is going to university there for the semester. We had a good time seeing Kevin; the only bad thing was I badly sprained my ankle while I was there. The first few days after injuring it were tough, but I was able to walk after a couple of days. The weather was 50 degrees colder than here in Doha.
I will post pictures as soon as we download them off the camera.
We are going to a Winter Ball sponsored by the Pegasus Club which is sponsored by the company Dave works for on Friday. Then we got tickets to go see the England -Brazil soccer match. People over here are as soccer mad as we are football or basketball; so this is like getting tickets for the Texans game back home;
