30th June, 1997, and 25 years later

 Thanks to you all for the love and care and words. I am improving at long last, and by next Thursday should be good for a half hour cataract surgery.

Today is our Grandson's birthday, , born on a very wet, stormy, ferociously windy day.

Today is sunny and warm after a cool start.

Moving right along to the last few years, Victoria University, Bachelor of Science,  then  a Master of Science with First Class Honours, employed with WSP in Wellington, and enjoying the mountains, rivers, and treks up to the snow.

Hoping you have a wonderful day.Josh, we are so proud of you and it is an honour to be called Nanny and Poppa.

" The memories we have with our family are everything"

Greetings from Jean

Wonderful achievements for your grandson. Way to go, Josh!
Meanwhile, poor Nanny is having a rough time of it. Hopefully, on the mend at last. Times like that we bless our good health care systems and the wonderful ambulance people. Hopefully now you will get your eye surgery and be good as new, Jean.

Happy birthday to your grandson, Jean! I'm so happy for him. Love that photo, and I understand the joy of working in the field as a geologist. I wish him every success! It's great that you are well enough to have your cataract surgery next Thursday. The surgery itself isn't too bad. It's just a little weird thinking that the surgeon is working on your eyes. Family memories are everything, and I'm sure looking forward to making new memories very soon. Hugs to you and Hugh. Take care!
