what our house would look like thousands of years from now

OK, probably not.  It won’t be this tall.  But this does give you just a taste of what we saw on our recent trip to Italy, France and Spain via a Mediterranean cruise.

Crumbling ruins in RomeThen again, there’s this shot that might be a little closer to the mark–

We had a wonderful time, and of course couldn’t help noticing all the modern (and “Modernisme”) architecture that wasn’t there in Rome or Bastia or Portofino, but was there in Monaco and a lot in Barcelona.

Land there is a bit more precious, though.  What with the Euro-dollar conversion and all.

Speaking of residences, here’s where we lived for a week’s worth of the trip.

So, OK, yeah, it’s been a while since either of us posted.  And, no, no one’s been sick (other than on our amazing Mediterranean cruise) or has any other good reason to not post since February.

We’ve just been…………busy.

And Fred has morphed a few times.

But now we think we’re close, really really close, and we have this nice model to prove it.

And Kevin’s gotten ticked off, again.  (I had to pull this one out of his leg.)

We hope to break ground this year…
