News and pictures from California

Grandson Avery, about 3 1/2 months old:
Dick's mother, Leta, is in the wheelchair with Perki on her lap.  A couple of weeks ago, she broke two bones in her ankle while walking Perki and needed surgery to make things right.  In the purple top is Aurora, Dick's sister, who has had Leta at her house for recuperation. Standing (L-R) is Julie, Kevin, and Tom (Dick's brother aka Tom the Geologist).  The interesting clothing?  Kevin participates in fencing events at SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) gatherings, there was one this weekend at a park near Aurora's house.  And this from B-in-law, Tom the G:  "At Twelfth night, the event at which the new Prince and Princess of the Principality of Cynagua are crowned, Kevin was inducted into the Queens Guard. He now wears a baldric (basically a leather strap worn over the right shoulder and joined at the left hip) and black scarf tied around the left arm that identifies him as a member of the Guard."
The shadow taking the photo? That's Eric, Aurora's husband.
