Time marches on. June 1958 marked my college graduation. I am working on an essay for the yearbook that will be compiled for the occasion. Below is a photo from the big day in 1958.
My Aunt Libby, Cousin Betsy, Janet the graduate, my mother, my sister-in-law Lil, June 1958
Moving on from June 1958, there were graduate studies at Northwestern University, the University of California Berkeley, and University College Dublin,, much travel, marriage for 54 years, 3 sons, 9 grandchildren. Does moving to a Retirement Home with Assisted Living in Seattle the last stop? I do not think so. I have much to look forward to – engaging with new friends as well as old, and I have 2 long term projects which are keeping me busy and engaged. My current passions are genealogy and postcard collecting. And I have an ongoing blog, Janet’s Thread, for which I try to write an entry each day. Plus I am still active in the fibre arts scene as a weaver, knitter, and crocheter.

At my weaving loom in Bhutan – We lived there for 2 years – a rich experience in the Himalayas. It’s a bit misleading to include this photo since I no longer have the big loom and I don’t weave at that scale – but I couldn’t resist!
