October was a special month for us. We celebrated our many blessings during our 27 years of wedded bliss and enjoyed Indian Summer and all the fall colors.

Finger Talk In the past eight years, we have helped to pack close to a million meals for Feed My Starving Children . This time our Australian friends helped as well. Cedar, who is just 13 years old, is already a very accomplished violist and is studying with Albert Markoff in Rowayton.

 Old Men and the Sea It has been many years since we chartered boats and sailed to Block Island and in the waters around Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket and in Maine between the many islands up there. So we jumped at the chance to brush up on our know-how when our friend asked us to spend an afternoon with him out on The Sound.





Russ and Choir Friends Our friend Russ Brine, founder of St. John Bosco Education Trust, spent a week here with us to raise funds for 45 Turkana students in Kenya. The people of St. John Church in Darien, CT have been sponsoring primary and secondary students in good Catholic boarding schools in Kenya since 2008.





Small Group Friends We are part of a small group of NPC (Noroton Presbyterian Church) members. We meet every second week from October to May to discuss issues raised in a book that we have chosen to read. We are currently studying James, and his message about Faith and how it is dead without good works.







Please pray with us –

Lord, You give us each day
one minute at a time.
That’s all we have,
all we will ever have.

Give us the love
that transforms each minute of
our lives into a reflection of
Your forgiveness,
mercy and goodness.
Amen.
