  7. I think that bloggers are pretty special people and sometimes 'get' us better than anybody else. Lovely goodies!

  8. Dearest Shane,

    No doubt that blogger friends can be really meaningful! In the couple of years that I do read blogs, I've learned about that as well. We really can lend a hand, an ear and give meaning to one another.
    Love to you,


  9. Happy New Year Shane! What lovely goodies you got - enjoy. Congratulations on your newest grandbaby by the way.

    Thanks for your good wishes.


  10. Testing as I've had 'comment' problems with blogger.
    It's apparently all to do with their new "threaded comments" which was added to their blogging interface several days ago.
    They are aware of the issues and will rectify it ASAP (hopefully).

    Meantime I had to change a setting and make the comments 'pop-up' rather than imbedded.

    I'll see if it works now.

  11. Dearest Shane,

    Pieter's Goddaughter did live in New Zealand because her husband was with Royal Dutch Shell, the Oil Company. That was the connection. Not the Dutch Consul. We're good friends with our Honorary Dutch Consul in our State and we annually do attend the Dutch Queen's Birthday Party celebration with the Consul. Always fun to meet ex-patriats, even if we are American Citizens since 1993.
    But niece Myriam has lived all over the world due to the Royal Dutch Shell connection. Quite some adventures too.
    Have a great Sunday and love to you,


  12. What beautiful things - love the patina of the old photos.
