New Year’s in Maine

January 5, 2010

 Last week we drove to inner Maine to meet and visit Danny’s granddad, Col. John C. Studt, USMC (Ret). We spent the week eating his famous Belgian waffles, meeting extended Studts, looking through decades worth of photo albums, listening to war stories from a true warrior and patriot, learning to crosscountry ski and snowshoe, playing chess and discussing strategy, tasting Drambuie for the first time (yum!), and most importantly, connecting with a man who has made more of an impression on my husband than I can understand.Naftalie was a hit. She’s a hit everywhere she goes (gas station, market, DMV, etc.). Check out more pictures HERE

 She was able to sit in the same highchair Danny did, as well as all of the Studt grandchildren. I loved the thought of this.

 We drove through a snow storm and arrived to Granddad’s welcome and this incredible fireplace.

    Great picture. Composition is perfect. The girl could be Elvis re-incarnate with that smile.

    Your comments about Danny’s granddad reinforced, to me, how ethereal we are. Vapors that appear for a little time, indeed.
