Always an adventure with you, Uncle Mark!

That phrase has become part of the Henderson Family Lexicon, after indeed many adventures with my brother Mark.  He and his family live on a beautiful property on a hill overlooking Breton Bay on the lower Potomac River, and it's always exciting visiting them.
Luckily, the weather cooperated, so one beautiful afternoon my sister, her husband, Uncle Mark and I went sailing.  He's the extremely good-looking one on the right.  Oh, and everyone says we look alike.
Of course, any visit has to include a bike ride, so yesterday he thrashed me for 51 miles.
And nowadays, what good American doesn't own a personal drone?
When we arrived last Friday,we noticed that there were lines of white flour in front of each door upstairs, including ours.  When we asked, it came out that a four-foot pet snake was on the loose, and with the flour, one could detect which room the reptile had entered or exited.  So far, our flour is intact.
However, Paula has started having dreams.
Anyway, it's been a great visit, complete with more adventures.
We hope that you're having some also.
Dave & Paula

Oh dear! I was enjoying the description of your visit until we got to the flour/snake thing. *shiver*

Jealous! I want to be out there playing at the Henderson house, too! I knew those snakes would get out at some point...
