THE SQUIRE HAS RETURNED— Tom and Judy Sharum of Rockford just returned from a two-week vacation starting in Venice and went to Croatia,Greece and Turkey. The first week they visited Split Croatia and Corfu, Santorini, Mykonos and Iraklion, Greece before returning to Venice to unload and reload more passengers. Then it was off to Croatia again only Dubrovnik Croatia this time, then Athens, Izmir Turkey, Nafplion and back to Venice for Home. The couple took the Squire with them during the whole trip and then gave it to the room stewards to read, having it make the rounds. The weather was a beautiful 75 to 86 degrees the whole time!
