It has been a while!

It has been a while since my last post. Mostly due to the fact I had not dedicated any time to it. We have been to several vacations, significant milestones, and just plain good times. This the beginning of 2015 and I guess it is as good a time to start again. Here is a summary of what has happened and what is coming in the future.

Stephanie got a job as a public defender in Orange County. She woks at PD9 and seems to enjoy the work. She has several trials under her belt and seems to enjoy the challenge of the trial. She got engaged to Michael Kennedy and have set a wedding date of 11/07/2015. That will be our challenge in 2015.

Melanie and Michael split their time between Lancaster, PA and Hampton, VA. Melanie is also a public defender in Hampton, VA and Michael works for Clark Shoes. They are both doing well!

So here is where we stand today, more to come on the days to come!

Stephanie Graduates from Stetson’s School of Law

On 5/12/2012, our youngest daughter Stephanie graduated from Stetson’s School of Law. She once again have made us very proud! We had great weather, a little bit on the hot side, but thank goodness it was all done in 2 hours. After taking pictures and sharing hugs and kisses, we celebrated with a lunch at Columbia restaurant at The Pier in St. Petersburg.

RedSox @ Detroit

Frances and I visited our dearest friends, Annette and Ralph Stento, in Detroit. We visited The Henry Ford and attended the second game of the 2012 season for the RedSox at Detroit. Got to say that we had a great time at The Henry Ford. Excellent museum of Americana….. They also have a tour of the Rouge. The Rouge is the factory Henry Ford built which at one time employed 100,000 people. Today it has a state of the art plant that manufactures Ford F-150 trucks. It is amazing how those trucks are being put together. Frances found the perfect color car for her:

Nice Colors!

The next day we attended the basebal game at Comerica Park for the second game of the season for the Boston RedSox.

This was a very painful game to watch. As a team, the RedSox did not show up to play and I was surrounded by Tiger fans! We were seated on the sixth row next to the Tigers dugout. Excellent seats thanks to the efforts of the Stentos to get us tickets. But, there was no reason to cheer on my team as they stunk! We lost 0-10. On the other hand, the Tigers are poised to have a great season.

Outside the miserable loss in the baseball game, we had a great time and were very happy to spend time with our friends in a new place.

March 2012 Vacation Cruise

Frances and I took a much deserved cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to Aruba and Curacao.  We boarded the M/S Westerdam on 3/4/12 after a brief visit with Edert and Irene on Saturday. We also visited Frances’ uncle Uriel and cousin Uriel. We all got together with family members for dinner and drinks and had a great time. We boarded the ship on Sunday and had a great week while on the cruise, full of relaxation and good food. Needless to say we also had our share of drinks.
