Ironic considering yesterday's conversation. How was the pie?

Thanks for identifying that for me, Ted.  Not sure I'd have known, otherwise....

The pie was excellent, and they had some damn good coffee. And HOT!

What about Shakes? And how much was the pie?  Good pie is no good if it costs $5.00 a piece.

I wonder....is she ever going to grow into those big beautiful eyes of hers?? LOVE the shots where she is trying to eat the gear shift on the tractor!

I've still got some curls.  They're just at the very front now. I love the gearshift pictures, too.  Apparently she was also growling at it.

Hi Paul - This looks awesome. How do you sign up for this? Do you have to register beforehand or can you just arrive day of?

I've always wondered, does it hurt when you get yanked by the bungee cord? whiplash?  Is it one of those thigs that the more you relax the less you hurt? or did you get an unwanted chiropractic adjustment?

Maybe the chiropractic adjustment was helpful.  "I have a crick in my neck.  I think I'll go bungee-jump." I have a lot of respect for you, having the courage to do this, Paul.  (Although.....part of me--the really sane, conservative,...

Cool.  Where is this gorge?  (edit: Oh duh, france.  nevermind) I've always wanted to bungee jump.  The thing that would bother me most would be the silent weightless feeling.  During parachute school we did practice airplane...

Rengal:  It did kind of hurt, but I totally jumped wrong.  You're supposed to spring straight out, and I sort of just stepped off the ledge.  So, it's kind of like being the end of a cracked whip.  I just kept spinning and spinning...

At the end of October, Betty went to visit her Grandma and Grandpa Gude in Illinois. She visited their new farm and got to ride on a tractor! Enjoy!

Some of you might remember me talking about doing this.  I hadn't planned it, but when I said I was willing to try, the other members of my group paid for me to do it. The Gorge is so big!  You can hardly see me.

Today was my second class at L'Institut De Francais, and it was really fun. You can't speak English at all, and I have a hard time speaking through problems. "I think, I think, it is very. . .This is the thing that is good. I am good with it. The...

8:24p When I arrived at my apartment today, the gate was wide open. I had remembered shutting it earlier, so I was nervous. There are several warnings posted around the apartment about break-ins and the like. I entered in Miami Vice, fashion, a slow...

10:35p - What I have learned in one week. The only thing that sucks about going to a total emersion French school is that I rely heavily on my sense of humor for communication with my fellow human beings. Because of the tricky way my brain works, I'm...

10:49p I just got back from a trip to a lot of other French cities, which was kind of fun. I don't remember any of the names of the cities, of course, but I have lots of pictures! This weekend, I had nights of exponential comfort. First I slept on the...

9:09p Well, I've learned that the best thing for me to do at school functions is to hang out with the Japanese students. They can't speak English, and can speak better French than me. Therefore, we both make efforts to communicate without slipping...

For our anniversary, Jennifer and I finally used my friend Ben's gift certificate for Salish Lodge & Spa. It expired that day, so it was a great time to do it. The tub was huge!

Betty was enamored with our server, Bret, because he brought her more crackers than she had ever seen. She would grab as many as she could at once, and stuffed her mouth way beyond its capacity. We liked the food, too!

There were so many great choices at the Salish Lodge.  Jennifer and I ended up ordering the same thing, but she got lobster with hers.  I, sadly, am allergic to most shellfish. Neither of us drink wine, which was too bad because their list...

On our way home from our anniversary night out, the tiny bear family stopped of at Twede's for some breakfast. I'm a big Twin Peaks fan, so it was a treat for me. It should be noted that I mispronounced it "Tweed's," for which I was scolded by several...

Jennifer ended up taking a train with Betty, so I'm going to just go to work.

11:16a So, I'm in Amsterdam's Schipol Airport right now, waiting for my flight to Nice. It's 11:15 am Sunday morning for my eyes, while my body still thinks it's 2:15 am Saturday Night. I met a rather cool guy from Barcelona on the flight to...
