Trafalgar Square, London, 1981

I'm doing an album for my two daughters from slides of all the places they've been. Credits later

This was a trip to England to meet their relatives. They were so surprised to find so many cousins their same age!
They were climbing the lions in Trafalgar Square when these two lads came by. They were fascinated by Linda's accent and wanted to know more about America. Cousin Joanne is looking on.

This is the area where a Japanese soldier held out from WW2. He was discovered in his hiding cave in 1972.

Japan 1970

On a trip to the five grand Lakes of Japan. I'm looking in the direction of Mount Fuji, but Howard didn't capture it in the photo so I added a later pic.

Trader Joe's missing recipe!

I got a bit fed up with my other, unfinished layout so put it aside for a while!!
Trader Joe's recently opened a store close by and of course we had to go see what the buzz was all about. I love their tasting bar for testing new foods before I buy, and so far I've loved their spinach salad with cranberries, pecans and cheese.
In spite of the green tinge caused by the pesto, I also really like the Pesto Orzo with pine nuts and parmesan cheese. I put the recipe and ingredients somewhere, and can't find it - darn!

Ikebana Lesson 1970

Although I spent a number of years studying the art of Japanese flower arranging, there were rarely, if any photos of me arranging because I was always the one behind the camera!

Once a week our teacher would travel all the way
from Tokyo just for us five girls!

Our lesson was always such a treat. Besides talk
of flowers, there was always good conversation on
Japanese philosophy and art
