Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. We don't have Internet access at our place up here in Maine, so my access to the Web is spotty. We're having a great time. On Tuesday we took a boat ride on Casco Bay. Yesterday was rainy, so we went to the movies and saw a great documentary called Man on Wire. It's about the guy who walked a tightrope between the World Trade Center towers in 1974.
On Saturday we start heading south. Next Tuesday (the 16th) we fly from DC to Rome, so, God willing, one week from today we (inc. the two cats!) will all be safe and sound in our new home.
