2016 Holiday Letter
2016 Found us Happy, Healthy and Humming along. Jay went back to Lexington to teach in January. I had a board meeting in California in late January and had planned a couple of days on the beach, only to be delayed a couple of days flying west because of the biggest snow storm of the year. In the end I made it in time for board meeting, but missed all of the fun part.
In April I had another board meeting in Denver, I stayed for the conference and saw a little bit of Denver. Jay arrived in Virginia in early May for the summer as usual.
Normally we go 2 to four years between trips to Europe, and we had been to Germany in 2015, then Jay was invited to speak at a conference in Rome the end of May. Never one to pass an adventure, we spent a week in Rome, the second week was split between Venice and Modena. For details see. http://picturesoftheadventure.blogspot.com/?view=classic .
We went to Florida for the 4th of July to visit my parents and family. Mom and Dad continue to be in very poor health, I made return visits in September and December.
Jay went back to Kentucky to teach in September, and I went to Lake Tahoe in Nevada for the last board meeting of the year.
I went to Kentucky twice this year, in February and November. On both trips distilleries were visited in search of rare and high quality Bourbons.
Our health was good, I continue to get stronger. For the most part the feeling in my feet has returned and my balance is near normal. I continue with follow-up MRIs a couple of times this year, and so far nothing appears to be growing where it shouldn't be.
Wishing you all the best in the holiday season and the new year.
