Welcome to our latest Jamison Update

December 2019

Trix and I just got back from Hawaii again. We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner there and enjoyed holiday parades and parties and December 7th Pearl Harbor memorial services. I played Amazing Grace at the Ft. DeRussy ceremony.

Earlier we enjoyed a Princess California coastal cruise from San Francisco to Ensenada, Mexico with stops in-between. In October I also attended the national meeting of the Association of the U. S. Army in DC. Following that were several Veteran’s Day ceremonies.

During this update period, we celebrated Oliver’s 9th birthday, Abriella’s 1st birthday, and Pete’s 44th birthday.

The grandkids are all doing fine. We still visit our former daughter-in-law, Sonja, in Oakland a couple of times a month and just saw her at the Christmas party the care home puts on every year for the patients and their families.

The photos from May to October include: Reunion with my old Irish pub band, Stout Rebellion, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, a reunion with our niece Emily to celebrate her graduation from nursing school, a visit from our cousins John and Ginny and a visit to see Sonja while they were here. My birthday, Trix getting her Quilt of Valor, Pear Fair parade with SAMS, Disneyland trip with Michael and his kids. Peter painted the deck and we covered the back yard with lots of wood chips. Shots from the Alaska and Hawaii trips.

The photos from January to April include Hawaii, Michael’s birthday, Dust In My Coffee at Elko, Nevada, SAMS Dinner, Jimmy Buffet concert, St Patrick’s Day in Sacramento, Quilts of Honor for me, Hawaii in April and the Scottish Games there, AUSA award, and Easter. I am still playing bagpipes at funerals and veteran support events. I'm still sending care packages to deployed troops. Trix does a lot of knitting. Her recent projects include hats and scarves for homeless veterans.

If you want to help support the troops, consider Move America Forward. They send thousands of care packages over the year and are headquartered out of Sacramento, CA. Another great way to support troops and veterans is contribute to the Gary Sinise Foundation. I met him in DC and got his new book which is a very impressive autobiography.
