Home from Europe

Marcia and I made it back late yesterday from our nearly two-week trip to Europe. It was a wonderful way to mark and celebrate our 25th Anniversary. I’ve put our photo album up on Flickr, if you’d like to see what we saw. If you click on the photo of me below — with the expression that I wore most of my time throughout this trip (and if you know me well, you know I don’t smile very often) — then click on any of the photos on the page that comes up, there will be explanations at the bottom of the page as to what you’re seeing, and navigation arrows at the sides to see other scenes. I’m still a bit jet-lagged, so might offer some other thoughts on the trip later, but suffice for now to say it was magnificent, and I’m pleased beyond words to have been able to share the experience with Marcia. It was a great beginning to our next 25 years together.
