The England Trip
In October, 2000, Margaret's sister Ann graduated from
Oxford with a master's degree in Musicology. This was an
occasion in its own right. But then we gathered as much of
her immediate family as possible in Oxford to attend the
graduation and spend time together.
I'll start with a picture of the whole family to get you
started with a cast of characters.
This is (l-r), Margaret's brother Peter Warton, his son
Joseph, Karen Warton (John's wife), Margaret Lingas (Ann's
daughter), Michael Warton (Margaret's father, Ann Lingas
(Margaret's sister), Alex Lingas (Ann's husband), Della
Warton (Michael's mother, a.k.a. "Big G"), Rita Warton
(Margaret's mother), John Warton (Margaret's brother),
Margaret Warton (herself), and Steve Benting (Margaret's
husband, and your narrator.)
Now that you know the lot of us, here's a quick shot of a
dinner at Otmoor (just past Lower Noke, if you're wondering.)
The cottages we
rented were extremely nice and quite close to both Oxford
and Ann's apartment. Margaret's dad did a great job finding
them, and they came with everything we needed to settle in
for a few days.
This slightly blurry group was (l-r) Della, Michael,
Steve, Margaret Warton, John, Margaret Lingas, Ann, and
John and Karen in Kidlington (Ann and Alex's apartment)
before the ceremony.
And then Margaret and I getting ready to go as well.
Here's a shot inside the quad of Ann's college (Hertford
College.) Not a bad place to hang out, I must admit. Of
course, Ann almost never got to spend any time here...
OK -- enough of the preliminaries, let's get to the ceremony.
