After biking through Europe on a fundraising campaign for a number of months, Andy has decided to settle for a while in Hemsedal, Norway. He is an electrician by trade and has taken a one year contract at a ski resort. He will post updates about his experiences on his blog and Facebook page.
He is presently visiting family in Gloucestershire before starting his new job and is shown here with nephews Archie and Logan.
Cousin Dorothy Milne Tenhave wrote the following entry on her Facebook page yesterday in memory of her son who died in August 2010.
“My son , Jerry, would have been 42 on Oct. 1, 2013, he was a diabetic since he was two, its a hard life being a diabetic, hope you all donate clothes to the diabetic stores. He was a good son, who didn t have a chance, was a great father and did what he could to survive. He suffered blindness, kidney failure and all the rest that goes with this disease. Someday I hope we find a cure for this disease, its not a happy life. Please give to Diabetes , give in memory of Jerry, he never asked for it and none of them do. Happy Birthday son, hope all is well and we meet again. xoxo”
Cousin Ashley Robertson is a graphic designer in Gloucestershire. He designs logos, T-shirts and wraps for monster trucks. He recently visited the U. S. to see his art work displayed on trucks at Monster Truck Jams in Lancaster, PA and Lebanon, NY.
He was accompanied by his proud Mum and Dad, Trudy and Andrew who were celebrating their 25th anniversary. They also spent a few days in New York City while on this side of the Atlantic.
Elizabeth and I spent an evening with them in Lancaster catching up on all the family news.
