CHRISTMAS 2015 PEACE ON EARTH AND GOOD WILL TO ALL! Well wouldn’t that be nice! This year more than any other I can remember, it feels like the world is falling to pieces and the peace of the infant Savior is what we need and pray for. I write this after a wonderful Thanksgiving shared with my brother, Raymond , his family and his in- laws who welcomed us into their home. It just reminds us of how much we have to be thankful for despite the world condition. We are thankful for our children and grandchildren as they grow and thrive. We have enjoyed Leslie and Tim and their boys numerous times this year. That drive to Seattle just gets easier. Jack at 10, is barely inches shorter than his Nana. I am sure the ... read more

CHRISTMAS 2014 Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our friends and family near and far. We feel so blessed this year, as we so often do, after a year of time spent with loved ones. Our picture this year is the whole family at our house for Easter. Not sure if and when that will ever happen again. It was our dream to get them all under one roof for a holiday. Bodies everywhere but we had a ball! A quick update on the family. Leslie and Tim are still in Seattle. Jack and Joe continue to grow and thrive. We are able to spend much more time with them since moving West. They were here for Easter/Spring Break, summer camping in Eastern Washington, Halloween at their school parties and trick or treating with ... read more

CHRISTMAS 2013. FAST AWAY THE OLD YEAR PASSES, FA LA LA LA LA ETC! We must be getting old because time just goes by way too fast. Our move to California to be closer to family has proved to be the right one for us. We have enjoyed so many family events this year and spent lots of time watching our family grow. The big news this year was the Hawaiian Wedding of Adam & Jessica. I am sure you already know their story, but they met in Singapore at age 4 and 5 and had last seen each other at age 7 & 8 when the Palumbo’s moved to Hong Kong. Fast forward 20 years, and as a result of one of our “newsy” Christmas letters they reconnected in Hawaii, began to date and married ... read more

Joan and I just want to wish all our friends around the USA and work a HAPPY THANKSGIVING…. We will be spending it at Joshua Tree National Park where Ben and Jennifer got engaged on Thanksgiving 3 years ago….however this time we are staying in a Holiday Inn because 3 years ago it was really really cold and we were not prepared for it!!!! Also this gives us an opportunity to give you our semi-regular update. We are still in Sun City Roseville and loving it…great to be near family and the nice weather is an added bonus. The weather has cooled off but we still manage to play golf several times a week.

Hi friends and family Joan's email was hacked. You may have gotten an email saying she was in Greece and needs money. Although money would be nice, not necessary. She still has the same email address but has lost all her contacts. So if you would like to stay in touch with Joan send her an email and you will be back on her contact list. Just let her know you got this blog entry. On a brighter note....all is well here in Sun City Roseville. No weddings or new grandchildren in the last 4 months. Playing lots of golf and enjoying waking up to sunshine every morning. Miss you all and know the door is always open to visitors. Joan & Dwight... read more

Christmas 2012 Another amazing year for the Roses of Roseville! That’s what I said, THE ROSES OF ROSEVILLE! We are settled in Sun City Roseville, California. This is exactly what we have been looking for the last few years and can’t believe our luck in finding it. It is a 55+ golf course community with 27 holes of golf, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, great clubs and neighbors and close to family. We moved in on January 30 and Dwight had a golf cart by February 2. We have comfortable guest quarters and several family and friends have already signed our guestbook. We hosted our first holiday, Easter, with family and friends and our traditional Egg Hunt. We are halfway between San Francisco and Lake Tahoe and we have had several ... read more

Greetings from the Roseville Rose's!!!! We found a home so our our Homeless Odyssey has come to an end!!! So this will be our final BLOG update. We have settled in a Del Web Active Adult community in Roseville, CA which is a suburb Sacramento. About two hours East of San Franciscco, 2 hours West of Tahoe/Reno and about 1.5 hours from Napa Valley. So a great location to entertain all of our friends around the world when they come to visit us!!! It has 27 holes of golf. Our home is not on the golf course but Dwight bought a golf cart so it is a very short drive to the clubhouse. So far Dwight has managed to play all 7 days in March. Joan has played several times also. There is also an indoor ... read more
