|Summary of April 14th 2022 family video chat
We had our first family group chat which actually went well and some were on the call for 2 hours. Alfred The Judge Keyserlingk of Dresden tried to join the night before but did not make it this evening. Next time, I will try and do it at an hour when our European and other cousins can join in.

Marion called in from her winter residence in Victoria BC and told us that she now lives part-time between Victoria and Squamish. She was dealing with a mild case of Covid. She reported that her mother, Cissy Keyserlingk von Dehn, who continues unvaccinated, has the usual full house and that everyone there had had Covid except her.

Kathrin reported that they will be heading up to Labelle in June and will be there in early July for some of the time that Gabys family will be there.
Monique and I are heading to Montreal from Florida in the first week of May. We have a tentative booking for a river cruise down the Danube from Vienna to Bucharest in early October.
Marina spoke to Gaby about her son who will be in San Antonio in August and may visit with Gaby.
My brother John, the doctor, had an open heart operation last week to replace a faulty valve. He is well and already resting at home.
