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,

Stevie's Snow Adventures

We have been very lucky with all our Storms including Sandy. However today's Snow Storm Feb. 13th really got us. The 12 inches of snow did not sit well on our Car Port . Karen was in the Kitchen cooking dinner (maybe that is why "Lighting struck") and I was in the Den-TV room giving Kaylee her bottle (my favorite time) when we heard a loud noise and the house actually shook. I was next to the car port so I immediately yelled I think we just lost our Car Port. Thank God no one was outside as it was about 6:30 pm. Don and Karen rushed out to check the damage and sure enough our car port collapsed and my new car was buried underneath it. You can see it in the pictures. We do know no windows are broken but we don't know what actual damage is done until we can dig it out. The collapse did damage our fence and the roof of the house plus some damage inside the den. Main thing is no one was hurt and we have been very lucky with all our bad weather. We are expecting another 3 to 6 in. of snow tonight. Hoping it won't be more. Love, Stevie
