John Updike - Remembered

The character, Harry, gave me insights on what I didn't want out of life.  I can't remember the whole story but I read it in my early twenties and it made a definite impact.  

I think I'll re-read it again.

The whole series were great.

It's been a long time

The grounds at Justin Winery.

I've been so busy and it's looks like it's going to be that way for a little while longer. I've spent the last few months trying to design our new house. It's been going through a lot of changes but we're getting there. Our family went to the central coast for the Christmas Holidays. It was a great time. Wine tasting through Paso Robles, touring Hearst Castle and a couple of missions, and great deal of eating and drinking. I think gained 20 lbs.  But it was worth it.
