Simon’s visit to Staveland

Martha and I have two sons and one grandson, Simon, shown below visiting Staveland. Simon is 3 and he lives in Boise, Idaho, a looooong way off. Simon is a pretty smart little guy, of course. So Martha thought it was time to start training him to be a Stave SuperStar Cutter. With a little coaching from Martha, Simon cut his first puzzle, a 4-piecer, which you see him cutting and assembling in the below photos.

Steve Goes High Tea in London

2808steveLondon1During August I flew to England (for the first time) to play 6 days of golf; the Sandwich area including Royal St. George's twice. However, after five(5) days of getting blown away by the English Channel winds I cried "Uncle", took the 6th day off and retreated to London. I took the train from Sandwich to London/Charing Cross, went to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and then to Browns Hotel (shown above) for high tea. It was quite a thrill to see all these famous places.
