These pictures should have appeared on the May, 2013 main page.

Our first week of April was spent on the delightful
tropical island of Providenciales, in the Turks & Caicos Islands...

It was great to be able to take our sons with us on this trip.
Frisbee, food, sun, watersports, tourism, deep-sea fishing... whew!

We came back from the tropical delights to
a Wyoming Spring in full swing. The contrast was not unexpected!

aluminum eagle

I was lucky enough to not have to work during
the snowiest days. Otherwise, I would have subject to my hospital's
snow plan, which can be, compared to my home life, sheer tyranny.

I dug this path for the cat...

While we were mired in snow, Mike & Kara were
eating ice cream. Home-made ice cream.
