we've been here in johnson city since june 12, and we didn't bring a cord for the camera, so i'm just now updating. thanks dr. liu for the picture cd! he's doing a rotation here from china, and he took lots of pics of mm at the lake. dr. aiken & laura asked us all up to their lake house in the mountains last weekend, and we had the best time! a bit of trivia: lake watauga is one of the top 1o cleanest lakes in america.. it really is beautiful, although i'm still a beachy kinda gal. more updates to come! we miss all our friends back home, and especially our puppy dog, gus.
