Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone
Happy Birthday Baby Jesus.......Hope this greeting finds you all happy and well. We have had a pretty good year. We hope you did too.
Kate just turned 24 !!!!!!!! and Kallie just turned 14.
Kate really enjoys living and working in Charlotte-NC..I have to admit it is really a nice city...She was recently promoted at work ....and Santa TL bought her a nice Stand-up paddle board so that she and Nala can explore some of the awesome lakes in the area.
Kallie is in eighth grade(last year of Middle School). The last marking period she only got one A....the other grades were A+'s. ..She played field hockey...did great in surfing during 2013....making the ESA regionals and the Easterns....more information to follow.....
Diane is doing great...her back is not 100% but she got some time in surfing...a new surfboard....and her surfing continues to improve....
TL continues to do a lot of electronic design work and software....the Surf Scoring system continues to get a lot of interest..It was used with great success at many major east coast surfing events during 2013..hopefully 2014 will bring some exposure to west coast and more. Just finished a new design on the Surf Timer and just started back up on my book about PLC's and industrial controls....
Below are some of our adventures during the year 2013...hope you enjoy the pictures and stories.............

Our year started out with a trip to Florida. TL was invited to attend the SURF EXPO at the Orlando convention center by the Eastern Surfing Association. It truly was an amazing event with over 1 million square feet of surfing vendors. Everything went well. Di and Kallie joined me for the last day of the expo and then we went to the parks. We hit Disney world and Discovery Cove....Wild Kingdom....really had an awesome time....we then went on to explore the Florida coast line from Jensen Beach.....New Smyrna Beach.....Saint Augustine...
