Furlough is a great time for catching up with friends we haven't seen for a while. Sometimes a face really rings a bell, but we are not quite sure if we can come up with the right name or not. This little bell ringer is my college roommate's daughter, Emily. Last furlough she took some of her first steps at our house. Now she is a school girl.
One weekend in September we traveled to Everett to enjoy a time of fellowship with Matt and Shirley Comstock and their children. Shirley even sent an apple pie home with us. Thanks Shirley. It was superb. The Sunday following our trip to Everett, we went to church at Hood Canal Community church. My father, John Bamford, was the guest speaker. In the evening, we drove to the airport and picked up Anna; Heidi's niece from Alaska. We are looking forward to having Anna with us for a few days. Today she jumped in to fill a needed babysitting job that needed to be filled. Our neighbors have twins which we enjoy.
