My wife and I are from England and every summer we go back for two weeks to visit with our family and old friends. This year we’re taking one of our grandkids, who hasn’t been there before. She’s already talking about the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.

I have a timeshare in Hawaii. It gets awful hot here in the summer so it’s a great, great time to get away. The place is on the big island and I’ve promised some friends we’ll do the helicopter tour over the volcanoes.”

We moved out of the city (Los Angeles) earlier this year and have embarked on a long-term project to renovate our new house. I guess we’ll be doing floors and walls this summer after finishing a bathroom in the spring.

I’m having hip replacement surgery. I wish I could tell you something more exciting than that, but that’s the gist of it – surgery and then recovery. Next summer I’d like to get out of the country on a cruise.
