From my kids accomplishments, to my heretical perspective of the world

Since Derek is going to be in Russia during June, Gisele and I thought it might be nice to take a trip at the same time, kind of a second or third honeymoon, maybe.

We have reservations for June 19 on a 10-day cruise that departs from Copenhagen, Denmark, and visits Sweden, Finland, Norway, Estonia, Poland and Russia. In fact, we will spend two days in St. Petersburg while Derek is there, so he can be our guide and interpreter.

The week before we go, Gisele will be in France, so we will just meet in Copenhagen.

Poor Devon has his new job and so will miss out on the travel this year. He said his job with “Spectra Sensors” is going very well and that he is enjoying it. I guess he’s doing lots of programming in Java, and using his physics training too.

Derek is near the end of his first year at ASU, looking forward to his trip to Russia.

Apollo is spoiled, whining if nobody plays with him at least once or twice a day. He gets to go for a bike ride at least twice a week, and visits the dog park once or twice too. He’s very good at fetching a ball, and an excellent catcher of scraps of food thrown his way. I guess he will stay with Derek’s girlfriend, Gabby, while we are gone. She has a large dog too, and the two of them enjoy playing together.

    Have you considered signing up for a space flight? It seems that you have been most everywhere this world has to offer–ohm no, I guess there’s still Africa and Antarctica.

    It sounds wonderful. Do it before you need someone to push your wheelchair all over the country!

    Sounds like a great summer for all but the poor working man! You really ought to consider an Antarctic cruise with a Russian ship as your next honeymoon!!
