Roy and girls back from spending a day with their Uncle Jeph in London. Jeph and his wife Kaaren Mathias are missionary doctors in India; their 4 kids are along for the ride.
Jeph informs us that he is going to visit us again in 2012. By way of Central Asia, and on horseback. They are against large carbon footprints and unnecessary fossil fuel consumption.
Is being eccentric a genetic trait of Mathiases? Roy now wonders.
