Its official, we have survived empty nest syndrome.

Chuck has taken up golf and Phyllis has taken up yoga.

We spend as much time as possible (and permissible) with
our children, Chris, Pam, Laura, Eddie and Laura and our
wonderful grandchildren, Dylan and Penelope.

Lion is still holding down the fort at 219 Central.
He very much enjoys his visits to Jada and Winnie in Fairfield.

On Sunday December 17th the Strands went to Aquavit for a Sunday Brunch. We dined on several different kinds of herring, salmon, beet salad and of course, Swedish Meatballs. There was also a lot of Aquavit consumed. They ran out of one the flavors we were drinking.
Here are several photos of us at the restaurant.

Spring 2005

The Strands are busy in New York, working, going to school and planning another wedding.

Pamela is marrying Ed Urquhart on October 1 at the Larchmont Yacht Club. We are expecting about 150 guests for the event. Happily, Pamela will be a college grad also. She is graduating from Fordham University, Bronx NY with a degree in Art History. She will start a career in art buying at an ad agency in NYC in June.

Chris and Laura are still enjoying their honeymoon year! Except for the days they have to go to work. Laura is moving up the corporate ladder and trying to break the record for book reading! Chris has become quite the chef and grill master. We are glad that the spring days are finally here, so we can spend the weekends sampling his latest recipes.

Laura is a proud member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority. She is completing her freshman year at Wagner College, Staten Island, NY. She made the Dean's list her first semester. This summer she is looking forward to her job as a lifeguard at the beach in Rye, NY.

Chuck and I continue to amaze people that we have children married, engaged and in college. We have to work a little harder to look younger, but it's worth it!

Please let us know what you are up to!
