The Summer of 2017 had us off to Europe again, essentially a 3 part adventure. First, Lillian and I spent several days in Germany visiting areas where her family lived before emigrating to the United States. Next, we spent 2 weeks in Switzerland with Mike and Jan Johnson and Tony and Ruth Yocum. Finally, the Johnson's and the Young's went to Venice for 4 nights. We were gone all or part of 27 days, one of our longest trips.
