I'm enjoying this series tremendously, Beth. Thank you.

It's the family life I've always dreamed of, the extended family, traditions, ties and memories. But you don't miss out (and I suspect will go on to tell more of) the difficulties, frustrations and complexities, big and small; the pains of every family, inherent in character, temperament and changing times. It's such a rich story, so beautifully told, and the photos are a delicious bonus.

Thank you, Dale and Jean.

Yes, there is much more to tell, and I will, if I can summon the stamina! I promised myself I'd keep this up for a month but November is almost done. What do you think? I'm inclined to take a break of a week or so and then continue, but maybe not on quite such an intense pace.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
