We arrived back in Dallas today.
We had a great anniversary vacation in San Francisco.
We hiked through the red woods, visited three wineries, ate world-famous mini-pancakes at "Sears", had an amazing time with our friends the Armstrongs at A16 and Tadich Grill (seafood curry casserole!), had a drink together on top of the Mark, strolled China town, ate pizza in the Italian district, rode a boat out under the Golden Gate Bridge, circled Alcatraz, and went to Holy Mass at some interesting churches.
Best of all, Joy and I were able to be alone together for the first time in four years!
Good news: We still love each other!
Thank you for all your kind notes, calls, and emails.
Saint Anne and Saint Joachim, pray for us!
ad Jesum per Mariam,
