Great to hear from you, too! I hope I can get by a little easier with English in Italy than I did in Prague! Perhaps I can learn a few phrases, however.

It was a wonderful trip. I am happy to be home, but I love to travel. Still, it's good to relax at home with Kim.

He was fine overnight, but he was eating when I left for work this morning. Hopefully when I get home for lunch I won't have any messes to clean up! Poor guy!!!

Hope Buster is feeling better!!!!!

If any of you would like, you can go to FB and wish Benjamin Clark happy birthday! He is my son who loves to write and has written many unpublished things. I am honestly amazed at his writing skills! Thanks, if you do. No worries, if you can't!


I'll do it here in a few.

A day removed from my vacation, I have finally found time to visit. I'm actually suppose to be at work, but our air conditioner is broken and the temperature is about 40F in the print office, so they had to give us the day off. I am not complaining.

Anyway, what a vacation! In regards to playing, Denver did not provide our best results, but we had a lot of fun. The mile-high air was certainly interesting. It took us all a bit of time to adjust our throws and breathing. The competition was fairly tough and we played fairly well - with the exception of a couple games. Aside from playing, the only real enjoyment we had in Denver was some white water rafting in the Arkansas River through Browns Canyon in Buena Vista, Colorado. It was quite beautiful! A great experience.

Vancouver was also quite nice. I didn't have the opportunity to do much sight-seeing - due to playing - but I am excited to return, someday. In the end, I was finally able to go for a swim in the Pacific Ocean. So refreshing! In regards to the tournament, we lost a heartbreaker in the finals of the Canadian championships 15-10. We had a 4-1 lead, but lead it slip away. The good news in this? We qualified for the world club championships in Lecco, Italy next August. We're all excited to return to Europe!

Time flies on vacation... and the countdown always seems to be flying! Excited to hit another milestone on Thursday. 2/3 to the start of the Christmas Season!? Wow! Signs should be popping up all over the place quite shortly. In fact, we're just over a month until my favourite thread of the year debuts!! Speaking of signs... I saw a Christmas magazine in the "seasonal" wrack at a grocery store in Aurora, Colorado. I don't really remember the name and did not have my camera on me, but it brought a smile to my face!

Have a great Tuesday, everyone! This midweek is almost here!! Soon it will be yet another 'Pines Day!

Sounds like you had a great vacation!!! Sorry about the heartbreaking loss in the Vancouver tournament.

Italy? Wow!!! That should be a great trip!!!!!
