I took two days of work last week as my brother Tony and his wife Joyce came to Visit. They are on a grand tour of the US for their 25th wedding anniversary.
We took the Clipper to Victoria on Thursday. Then went shopping and wine tasting on Friday. Saturday Tony and I rode on the Tandem for a bit (he doesn't ride much anymore) he was the one who introduced me to bike racing, at my parents urging, to get me out of trouble. I don't think it worked ;-). On Saturday afternoon we went to Martha's Dad's house in Anacortes and sat on the deck drinking wine, or beer. then went to dinner.
I had them at the Airport at 5.30am on Sunday, for their flight to Vegas, where they took a Helicopter trip over the Grand Canyon, and tonite they are going to see Mamma Mia on the Strip.
Me, I'm probably going to El Tour de Tucson again this year, instead of a trip back to Ireland!
