This is the 20th End-of-Year newsletter we have composed using the technology of the day, including links. Strictly speaking, once again, this is not a "letter." Those are missives in a pleasant type face, on fancy holiday "paper", carefully folded and sent through snail-mail with something attached called a "postage stamp!"(60 cents). If you want an historical look back, last year's letter is here.

Our daily activities are all listed in our 2022 Journal. The year's milestones and highlights, however, are summarized below. Distribution is accomplished by sending the link in an email and modifications occur in response to questions/suggestions from friends and family. Click here to send me a note.

Tom is 76 and Lew is 73. We've been retired for 14 years and, since May, 2019. we're living in Wyomissing, PA, 1/4 mile from Sal, Kate, Dominic, and Leo (SKDL)
At our ages, I suppose annual letters start with health updates. At 76, my prostate cancer isn't going to go away; it's just not very important. Lydia has no major health issues and will certainly outlive me.
Travel We had a little more travel this year. We hit Disney World 4 times this year. Our first trip was in March, followed by The Commissioner's Academic Challenge in April. In June, we returned to Disney World with Sal, Kate and the boys (SKDL). In August, we boarded the American Constitution for our 11th cruise with American Cruise Lines, this time for the Grand New England Tour out of Boston. In September, along with SKDL, we spent another weekend at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Finally, we were back at Disney World in November.
Theater I still maintain the Community Players of Salisbury's website.
Sal continues web design, working out of the home, and Kate continues practicing dermatology. Dominic (or "D", as he is known to one and all) is 14 and in the 8th grade at Wyomissing Junior Senior High, and still runs for Cross Country. Leo is 11 in the 5th grade at West Reading Intermediate Center. He's involved with the high school drama club and will star in the youth version of Once Upon a Mattress in February. With our Zoom account, we still host family game night, monthly, for the Ferrarello extended family, and on Saturdays, Tom is the Clue Master for a weekly Clue game, in EPCOT's World Showcase, for the extended Laws family and friends.
2022 We're returning to Baltimore's Inner Harbor in February. In 2023, we will go to WDW 3 times. Our first in March, followed by The Commissioner's Academic Challenge. Between those visits, in March, we're taking a cruise with American Cruise Lines retracing the Revolutionary War. Lyd and I will have our Disney fall holiday, in September.

Merry Christmas, 2022 and Happy New Year, 2023

Tom and Lydia
