Monday January 30. A good weekend.

I finished the translation, from Dutch into English, of “The Mastmakers Daughters”.  It took a lot more hours than I had expected. With the illustrations I am now at 185 (word processing) pages.  In the next ten days or so, after cutting and polishing I should be ready to present it for editing and critique to a few friends, who have greater writing skills, for improvements. 

In my previous blog I wrote about the surprise re-discovery, in church, of friends from the mid seventies. Peggy and Dennis had me over for dinner and invited Pierre and Hélène  as well. And I got to meet three of their children who were babies the last time I saw them. We had a lot to catch up on.

Yesterday I went to say good bye to my friends in Gig Harbor and attended mass at St. Nicholas. I visited my Dutch American friends Albert and Johanna and then got together with a bunch of my old sailing friends at Terry and Janet’s home for dinner and a slide showing of the Danube trip.
