Family Pictures- 2008

Family Pictures

 2008 was a ball of fire when it came to activities in the Torrance Carr household.

Tom expanded his business to Milwaukee by buying two new buildings: the  1910 Victorian Brumder Mansion  and  a 1920's, 'bungalow" which is right next door,  called Grand Central. Both are zoned commercial.

Top deck of the ship. There were 13 or so floors, and many activities to enjoy on this 3 day cruise.

Tom found the time to do a little paperwork in our cabin.

Food was terrific. This was breakfast. This was one of the eating areas used for breakfast, lunch and snacks, which were available between meals, of course. Dinner was served in the dining rooms, at two different times.
