Grandma says ‘Hello’, we are at her apt. eating pizza and looking at your blog. Grandma says to be well, she loves you both and she is looking forward to seeing both of you sometime later this year.
Grandma really enjoyed the pics on your blog. She said you both look well.
Wow!! Just finished reading the meditation saga. Can’t wait to hear more details in person. God bless.
Hi Joe, So sorry, we got home just after your phone call. I called your parent’s home right away to see how I could phone you back, but your dad said email would be our best bet. Mehmet, Nicole’s husband is from Adana. I am sure his brother Ercan /Air-Jon/ and sister Ozlum would be very pleased to show you their part of Turkey. I’ll talk to Mehmet and Nicole to see how to best put you in touch with them. Stay safe. Hugs, Joan Boylan
