News from the Turner family
Winter finally arrived for the start of 2016 with a minor deposit of about 4" of snow after a record breaking December where temps went into the high 60's F.
New year's eve was spent quietly at home with with the usual TV offerings around Times Square and Ian working on his drone getting it ready to fly on Jan 1st.
The Fremont Flyers RC club held a meet at the local drag strip where folks bought a pot luck and held a general fly-in. Ian flew the repaired and updated 250 drone and was able to bring it home unscathed despite the wind picking up in the late morning. See Ian's page for drone information
The kitchen is stripped ready for new granite counter tops and meanwhile we are cooking with an electric wok, a small pot heater and the griddle. As a result we held a pot luck brunch on Christmas day where each family was tasked with bringing something that did not involve cooking. Despite the limitations and lack of turkey the day worked out better than we had imagined.

On this site is a very large photograph collection of the Turner and Thomas families dating back to 1900. Numbering about 18000 individual photographs, they are organized into a rigorous chronological section but you can find a section of albums of selected topics.
Ian's sister Annette's untimely passing October 9th 2015 has saddened everyone and is a blunt reminder that life can be very short and should be lived to the maximum every day. May she rest in peace.
The trip to England for the funeral was also a time to reacquaint with seldom visited relatives and we were able to make contact with our cousins Jacqui, Susan, Jane and Vicky. We also met with the sisters from both sides of the family, (except for Lynne). We hope to make trips to the UK more often when Ian retires.
