Welcome to Our Website

As you may have guessed, this is a website belonging to David and Judith. This is our personal site for family and friends to keep up with what is happening in our lives.

About Us

We live in Portage, MI, just adjacent to Kalamazoo. Our son, Barry, lives near Traverse City, Mi with his wife, Nichole, and our grandsons, Elliot and Cormac. Our daughter, Lindsay, lives a couple of miles away our two granddaughters, Alexis and Morgan. We are both retired from regular jobs which is just as well since neither of us has enough time to do the things we want to. I (David) teach photography at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts when I am in town and Judy is a weaver and is active in the Weavers' Guild of Kalamazoo.

We have a 37' Nordic Tug, "Sir Tugley Blue," which is based in Whitehall, MI. This is our "summer home" and we typically spend about three months cruising in the summer and other weekends locally on Lake Michigan. Travel has always been a big part of our lives since high school and, with retirement, extended trips have been possible. Our family is scattered - England, Spain, and the USA - so just visiting family can involve long trips. In betweeen traveling and our other activities, we seem to be continually working on our house and garden and trying to fit projects into a hectic schedule. note: we are already planning next year's construction projects.
