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!
Hey Brent,
Nice to see you!
Glad you guys had fun in Colorado!!

Thanks, for $44 after tax and shipping, I just couldn't pass it up. So that is my one new Santa that I always allow myself to buy before Christmas.
