Even though it was November, we got up to the lake three different times in November. This is a photo of Brad wake surfing and having a blast it appears. You will notice that he is in a full wet suit...it was only days before Thanksgiving.
Macy's friend Brad Stears came to visit for a few days before Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, Macy took all of the photos of Brad (as not to get confused with our Brad) on his camera, so I don't have a photo of his amazing wakeboarding or surfing...believe me, he is good at both.
Can you tell it was cold...we are all in sweats!
We took a day trip while Brad was here to Carmel and Monterey on the coast. It was a lovely day!
This is a silly video of us having fun speed walking in Carmel Highlands. What a sport you are Brad!

This is a photo that my cousin emailed me recently. In this photo my dad is holding Garry Rick, my cousin. It was taken in Lyle, Minnesota where my dad grew up. My dad was 100% Norwegian and we often heard him say, "ufdah," a Norwegian word that means pretty much whatever the speaker wants it to mean. I have always thought that my dad was a pretty handsome guy...notice that he has a full head of hair in this photo. He was a fighter pilot in WWII and flew in North Africa during the war. I learned that he had to bail out of his P38 plane three different times...once in Egypt in the dessert, once over the Mediterranean Sea and once over Three Sisters in Oregon. I guess we were lucky to have him around as long as we did, for he certainly had several close calls during the war. We didn't find out about his war experiences until a year before he died. I guess it wasn't something he had ever wanted to talk about before that time. I was grateful that he finally told us or we would never have known.

This is the London Eye. It was right next to the Marriott Hotel where we stayed in London. The River Themes runs right through London.
We also visited the Lafayette-Galleria
