Last Sunday while in the San Francisco bay area for a family Thanksgiving celebration my wife Susan and I got together with Roger Huitric and his wife Karen for lunch. Another friend and fellow Loyola University alumnus and his wife, John and Connie Dalton, also joined us. Lunch was at Wente Winery restaurant in Livermore.

Roger, John and myself were in the same Loyola class and had been dormitory roommates at one time or another. The first attached photo is of Roger (with the beard) and me and the second photo is of Connie, John, Roger, Karen, Susan and Peter.

Roger and Karen are enjoying retirement in San Jose and Susan and I are enjoying retirement in Princeville on Kauai.

Aloha and best wishes for a merry Christmas and happy and healthy New Year! Peter

Marty and Margaret in DC

Last week I had the opportunity to visit with Margaret in DC, as you can see from the attached photos.

Contrary to popular belief, nun Margaret does not live in a one room adobe structure with just a cot and a wooden desk with a crucifix on the wall. She lives in a nice apartment complex conveniently located near a train station so I could avoid driving in DC. Photo 1 was taken at her office at the National Right to Life organization.

We had a great visit, starting with Mass and breakfast at the Basillica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, followed by a tour of the International Spy Museum and dinner at the Chop House (Photo 2 above).

Hope all is well with you,
