And here's the window that we dedicated. Simeon is holding the baby Jesus (Jack played Simeon in the Cathedral pageant for many years), Anna, and at right are Mary and Joseph. Story is at Luke 2:21-38.

Here we are when the window in memory of Jack Kellett was dedicated at Christ Church Cathedral. In the back are Tom Mercer (with gray beard) who created the window and Peter Elliott. Others: David, Neale, Margery, Russell, Nick; in front, Ros, Jane, Frankie, Finnegann, Naomi. A great day!

Lining up to get on board. Cruising, especially getting on or off the ship, involves lots of lines.

Over the weekend of Sept. 22-23, Ros and I joined a group of her Eric Hamber High School teachers on an overnight cruise from Seattle to Vancouver. We got up at 6 to take the bus to Seattle at 7, got on the boat at about 1 pm, left the dock at 4, and arrived in Vancouver at 6:15 the next morning. Very short but it gave us an idea what cruising was like. I think I prefer more active holidays -- it was like staying in a big hotel or a resort. Not unpleasant but not very exciting. Lots and lot of people.
