they are almost there, one more plane ride

Come Full Circle: We are almost there, one more plane ride

I understand the concept of cooking and cleaning, just not as it applies to me!

Mom gave me the dish towel she is holding. I think I ought to frame it and hang it on the kitchen wall!

Monique created this photo a la AW, with some photo software she has. Mary actually sat still and didn't turn her head or blink!

Scene from a Chinese Restaurant and more photos of Uncle Al & Aunt Mil

The Lotus Inn, location of our wedding rehearsal dinner. This place is our "Cheers". Food is not bad at all, yummy in fact, and everyone there just loves Mary. One waiter was truly touched by her story, and when he said she is a very lucky girl, he spoke from his heart. Of course I said we are the lucky ones, but I understand his sentiment.

A waitress there actually grew up in Guangzhou, and said she had not been back since leaving China for the US. Her mom had told her how built up and commercial the city has become, since she saw it last. Interesting.

It's an interesting read.
