  2. Thanks guys! It is great to receive such comments from accomplished writers as yourselves!
    Love you - we were so happy to see you at the BBQ as well. Thanks so much for coming!

    1. I just found this function on the blog, so just saw your reply. Yes, creaking into the current century as usual... Have you decided on any of these places as a new home??? I think Lisa might just pick Italy, particularly Tuscany--what views! And, olive groves...can't go wrong there. Keep writing and shooting! We're *addicted* to this! Much love to you all, A, K, & G xoxo

  3. Mitch... I am so impressed and jealous that you and your family have done this together. It is an inspiration to me ! I will follow closely as you approach Fiji and NZ as I miss that part of the world oh so much! I wish to impart on your daughters how lucky they are to be having this experience!

    Be well,


    1. Hey Ferley, thanks for the encouragement. I am just booking our NZ and Australia tours In February and March. Not sure if any of the activities/places that you visited were family friendly, but let me know what you did. Still reminisce about our Costa Rica adventure with the UCC boys. Mitch

  4. This is Connor Shayegan. We got your letter and I liked it a lot. You must be having so much fun. Hope you have a good time. Looking forward to reading more about your adventures!!
