Dear Ruth,
You have been on my mind so I thought I would try to Goggle you and "bingo" there you were, first in line. I hope this finds you well and happy.
We are still in the Detroit area, trying to keep our noses above water in this depressed economy. Our children are all doing fine and our 4 grand children are thriving. You can see what I have been doing with my work on my website: kaklein.com.
on that site, under links, you can see what everyone in the family is doing.

If this gets to you and you want to hear more let me know and I can fill you in. I would love to hear about your life.

cheers, Karen
