Grandma, Bill, Chelsea, and Ryan
during an earlier visit this month.

My mother came home two day ago. She has been either in the hospital or the skilled care facility (nursing home) since June 4th. She's settling in and hopefully all will go well.

It's "Sayonara" to Okinawa and "Hello" to California. Janna came home yesterday and we're so glad to have her back. Wendy and Rick were great hosts. It seems they did something everyday to enlighten Janna during her stay. What a great trip!
Tonbi (or Tobi) ga taka wo umu
Literally: A kite breeding a hawk.
Meaning: A splendid child born from common parents.


  1. It is so nice to have family home, I get everyone home in two weeks for a few days. Enjoy!

  2. Glad to hear your mom's back from the hospital and Janna's back home. I bet you missed her, but what an adventure. How's the summer playing out for you? Are you and Hugh still on "overload"?

  3. We are on overload, but we're trying to stay on top of things.
