Jennifer's Health and Travel Update...Archives from 2007

Monday, January 1. 
We've had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Jennifer and Winston joined us (as did Monica and Toby, who are now engaged, and Ursula's mother) for a week at St. George Island. We enjoyed mostly sunny skies and surprisingly warm temperatures, and Jennifer got in some long beach walks.

Jennifer and Winston have a new home now, having bought a townhouse in Reston, Virginia. Jennifer has had enough of the long hours on her feet at the tea store, and now is concentrating on furnishing their new home while thinking about what else she wants to do.

Good news: Jennifer had another routine MRI last week, and once again there was no change. This is the latest in a series of MRIs going back to August 20, 2004, showing no tumor growth.

Ursula and I had a great visit with Jennifer and Winston at their home in Reston, Virginia. Ursula got there first, and had some cozy snow days in the town house they bought recently. I joined them Thursday. The weather warmed up then and we got out and saw some of Reston, one of the first "planned communities" in the country. We also made a trip into Washington DC to see the newest museum there, the National Museum of the American Indian. It has an amazing cafeteria with foods representing the native peoples of each part of the country. Between us we had a couple of buffalo dishes, salmon, and a variety of native vegetables. The gift shops and exhibits were good too. We especially enjoyed eating home-cooked food with Jennifer and Winston, including his famous steak recipe.

Jennifer and Winston met us in Chapel Hill for her sister Monica's graduation from the University of North Carolina on May 13. We all had a great time walking to and from the ceremonies and seeing some of the sights (especially restaurants).

Here are Jennifer and Winston leaving Hill Hall, the location of the afternoon ceremony for graduates of the UNC Music Department, for the hilly but pretty walk of nearly a mile back to Monica's apartment.

Jennifer is back with Winston in Virginia, after spending several weeks here during Monica's wedding preparations and wedding. Winston was able to get away from work and join us for part of the time, too. We had some great family time!
