I love your descriptions of the 3-day catch up fest. If I ever retire, I put your city, its environs, and, of course, your presence on my travel list. Georgia O'Keefe!! Although Harald uncharacteristically asked you at the reunion what was so great about New Mexico, I know he would love it. He travelled extensively through parts of South America, Spain, and Portugal as a university student. I hope you are well. You sound good. Do you ever come east?

Betsy (Cadbury) and Art Borror just came through Santa Fe as part of a
whirlwind cross country adventure. The are delivering a car to Betsy's
niece, and they must reach the San Francisco area by Friday due to
events scheduled for the weekend by Betsy's sister. I did manage to snag
them for two nights, which equated to three meals plus some early
morning and late evening jabber time.
Betsy and Art were married about six years ago, though they have know
each other almost all of their lives. About two years ago they purchased
a home in Pittsfield, NH, complete with post barn and stable.
Landscaping, gardening and other home improvements are commanding their
time, and they are loving it. Betsy does commute weekly to Montreal
(four and a half hours away) to sing professionally. Art is a retired
professor of ornithology from the University of New Hampshire. He has
always been passionate about recording bird songs - that is, until the
recent acquisition of a digital camera.
We wined and dined each other at three notable (though not necessarily
expensive) Santa Fe restaurants. Given just one full day, Art and Betsy
had to pick and chose among the local attractions. They opted to visit
the Audubon Bird Sanctuary (both are active with the Audubon Society on
Hog Island off of Maine), the higher reaches of the Sangre de Cristo
Mountains (10 miles or so UP from my house), the Plaza (where the local
Indians sell their wares, mainly jewelry) and the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum.
This morning they shot off early in the direction of the Grand Canyon.
As it happens, Art's photography is quite good, and he and Betsy left me
with some pictures of their "new" home. We also got a picture of the
three of us. I will try to get them up on the Web in the next few days
and send everyone the link.
We did have fun!
