Grandpa Jack Kellett is back in hospital, after what was apparently another mild heart attack. I've lost count... his fourth? or fifth? But he keeps on going and it keeps on ticking, at age 92. He's going to be moved to another hospital (he's at the Vancouver General now) to rest for a few days and then come home. He's a survivor, thanks goodness! Posted by Picasa

It wouldn't be Christmas at the Kellett's without a jigsaw puzzle. Grandpa had little trouble with this one. So we had two Christmases in 2005... one away and one at home. Posted by Picasa

I took the pictures from above, so I could get a better view of people, so Ros took me on the chair. Posted by Picasa

Before leaving, we visited the Lawrence Science Museum at the University in Berkeley, which Ros loves. Then back to Vancouver. A great getaway. Posted by Picasa

I got some "Grilling for Dummies" BBQ equipment from Chuck, which is apt, since I am a bit of a dummy when it comes to grilling. I'm looking forward to using it. Posted by Picasa

Here are Chuck, Ros, Louise (Chuck's family's good friend), Lori, Mike, and Tristan. Posted by Picasa

Christmas Day Leah lit the first Hanukkah candles. It was the first night of the Jewish holiday, so both families (Chuck's and my other brother Mike's) gave each other Hanukkah or Christmas presents. Posted by Picasa

Ros was very much in the festive spirit down there. Here we are at Chuck's house. We house sat for a few days when he and his family went to Montana to bring daughter Leah home from boarding school. They returned Christmas Eve. Posted by Picasa

We enjoyed being with my sister Marijo who lives near Chuck - across the street actually. One rainy day we went to Pier 39 in San Francisco and visited the Aquarium. Posted by Picasa

My brother Chuck showed us the new offices of his company, Charcoal Companion, which makes barbeque utensils and other things to go with patio cooking. He's very proud of it. Posted by Picasa

We went to California this Christmas to be with my brothers and sister in Berkeley and in Davis. The trip there (and the trip back) took two days. Weather was rainy, but not too bad. It really rained after we returned Dec. 27. (We went down beginning Dec. 19.) Posted by Picasa
