New Albums at Webshots
We had a wonderful weekend in Chicago celebrating Leah's Retirement from the US Navy Reserves. I have posted pictures at my webshots. There are two albums, here and here.

I have added two photos to the second album. Really good shots of Meredith and Jennifer at the reception.
That was quick, Mom! You got lots of great pictures. One of my favorites is the closeup of Leah and Judy you took on Friday.
You did look like you were having fun in the airport. I'm almost sorry I missed it...almost!
The Flag Ceremony looks very impressive. Were you nervous, Leah? Who is the Navy man about twice as big as Kitty Lou in the family pic? The flower arrangements for the reception were lovely.
I wasn't a bit nervous - surprisingly. When I delivered my remarks, I actually found myself enjoying the experience. The big man is QMCS Leader who honored me by serving as the Master of Ceremonies - he is a master MC. I did make a purchase of two dozen roses at proflowers.com that were delivered to the Navy Lodge on Friday PM. For the rest, we went to CostCo - what a place for fresh flowers! There was excellent help putting the arrangements together - Eileen from Fairfax VA did a suberb job coordinating the centerpieces and bouquets. The centerpieces left the premises as the guests departed. It was a special day - am so sorry you and Patrick were unable to attend.
