I love this picture, taken today by Dad, of Champoo, Kae and Joe dressed up and ready to go to the wedding of Catelyn, daughter of our book-keeper Cindy. In the background is Joe and Kae's first new vehicle, picked up yesterday. Kae and Joe managed the nursery skillfully in their first year of operation, and it is great to see them have some reward. Of course, having Champoo here is the biggest bonus of all.

It is a great relief to me to have the transition of ownership completed and apparently successful. Not just a relief, but a source of great satisfaction. I was lucky to have a younger brother willing to take over the nursery from me after 17 years. And then to have Joe add Kae and Champoo to the family has brought us all great joy.
