Goodbye, until June 23

I suppose a really dedicated blogger would own a laptop and take it with him no matter where he was going, but I think of vacation as a time to remove myself from computers.

I'll be gone for a couple of weeks. Enjoy the other blogs at O-R Online while I'm away.
Eight of us representing the Washington Rotary Club are headed to Lithuania, via Prague. It's a working vacation. We'll be spending a couple of days in Obeilei, Lithuania, painting, cleaning and doing repairs at Arteities Vardan, a safe house for abused and neglected children. Our Rotary club has been assisting it for several years and even paid for one of the kids from the home to attend college.

You may remember Dijana Kanciene, pictured here with two of her daughters. "Saint Dijana," as the townsfolk call her, runs Arteities Vardan. She'll be our boss. It will be good to see her again.

I'll be writing about our experiences and sharing photos when I return.
