Do I watch Wimbledon or the Tour de France?  Exciting days on the Tour and now at Wimbledon Andy Murray is about to play Nick Kyrios from Australia.  Mark Cavendish’s winning sprint finish today was fantastic.  It doesn’t get any closer than that.  I find that Serena had a convincing win in her match.  Now let’s root for Andy Murray.


Hereditary Order

Hereditary Descendants Governors

a list I found on Ancestry.com

As I travelled in southern Connecticut this past week we passed near many town centers = and cemeteries – I wondered if I was treading the ground of some of my ancestors.  Will I ever have the chance to wander through some of these cemeteries or will we always be en route to do something more pressing in the present – e.g. visiting family while we and  they are still alive!

Guess who wants to come with me next time.  I’m not even completely unpacked.  Katerina has booked her place!  Love that cat.


I wonder if she would like to meet Poppy – one of the dogs we met at my sister’s in New Hampshire.  Poppy liked to be in the center of things!
