I guess the only big news here is that Dad is still in Europe...he has one more week before coming home. So far he has visited Rome and Venice in Italy the even got to go to the Vatican, they have been to Zurich and another place in Switzerland, they went to the top of Mt. Titlus in the alps & now they are in Amsterdam, next week they will end up in Paris and then fly home. He has been over there for a month taking high speed trains (that move over 200mph) to all of his destinations. He is having the time of his life. This was a special trip for he and my stepmom because they are celebrating 25 years of marriage this year. What a nice anniversary present.
