Preview of our August 15 to Sept. 9 Western Swing

We will combine some great family occasions (the delivery of the 2nd grandchild to college and a visit to our Mikey and his family in Steamboat Springs, CO) with a trip of the lifetime  to historical shrines along the Lewis & Clark Trail in mostly Montana.

Here’s Drew Clayton with his Mom, Amy, at the Senior Night lacrosse game at Conestoga High School this fall.
Here’s a more typical photo of Drew as he celebrates his scoring a soccer goal…he’s his own biggest fan…and we love that about him. 

The last 10 days, we will do a 1,000 mile road trip through South Dakota and Montana in a van with our pals, the Boyds and the Staffords (pictured in the opening photo in Cortona, Italy last year).  We are responding to a casual invitation from Linda and Joe Franchini to visit them near Glacier National Park.  We were sitting in a restaurant (the 8 of us) in Cortona at the time.  How improbable and delightful that we world travelers have the time and the curiosity for an adventure together.

Here’s a bad photo of the 8 after the famous dinner in Cortona.  You can just glimpse Joe & Linda Franchini behind Butch’s left shoulder.
