This photo of DH and me was taken on our 50th anniversary, 12/27/08. Both DDs and 2 DGC celebrated with us.
DH and I live about 40 miles north of Baltimore, in what WAS rural 40 years ago. We are empty-nesters. Have 2 adult daughters, 2 great SIL, and 3 grandchildren --1 is 22, and 16 year old twins. In September of 2011, we were presented with our first GREAT-grandson ! They all live in PA. and are VERY busy people !
I retired from MANY facets of nursing 12 years ago, and LOVE being in charge of myself !
We had a 4-couple Gourmet Group for so many years, that we ran out of new things and themes. Now we meet at restaurants, to avoid trashing the kitchen as well as the budget. We started with 7 course meals! None of us can DO that anymore !!
We have been VERY fortunate to be able to travel more than we ever dreamed !! Have B&B'd in Great Britain many times; visited Italy, Greece, France, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Switzerland, and Iceland (in February !) We would far rather stay in B&B, or self-catering apartment or dwelling, than be on a tour. Our trip in '09, was to 2 small towns in Sicily --Sant'Alfio, on the slope of Mount Etna, in a 15th century, converted winery --and a week on the north coast near Cefalu. Very few spoke English, but everyone was helpful and we managed to communicate, and had a wonderful time ! (Photos in Gallery on website below !) We returned there in Sept. '11, for a 2 week vinyard tour with a small group, led by our local wine store owner - whose family is still in Sicily !
DH is my photographer - (and a website designer) but he insists on set-up time as well as a hot meal ! I should plan ahead for serving appeal, so he can get the best shot.
I am now a SIX year survivor of colon cancer, as of 5/11, and four year of thyroid. Angels on my shoulder found both lesions before I even had symptoms ! I strongly encourage screening colonoscopies starting at age 50 -- that is ONE which can be totally avoided !

Love ANYTHING Italian or Greek !! The most fun in our travels was trying local foods --we even cooked in sometimes.
Favorite restaurants -- The Chameleon Cafe in Baltimore, it is in an end-of-row corner house, (old townhouse), has maybe 20 tables, ALWAYS crowded, and very French in atmosphere and attractively served dishes; and Lauriappe Grill in Havre de Grace - more modern, spacious, with some unusual combinations on the menu. (Havre de Grace is ON the Susquehanna River, and often there are fresh fish plates.)
