Love or brownies (posted by Ann)
I really enjoyed our visit last weekend, and I got some great pictures. Here's one of my favorites!
We've had a really busy week around here. I went to NY on Monday, and left there to fly to Chicago early Tuesday morning. I had the sailboat Thursday from 9 AM through Saturday at 5 PM, so I had a friend spend the night with me Friday night. We had a great time sailing, swimming, and becoming coated with bug spray, sunscreen and sweat. The good thing about fresh water sailing is you can always jump in the lake if you get too disgusting, which we did. I took several different groups out sailing with me during that time, and enjoyed myself tremendously.
We had some excitement on Friday, but before I get into it everyone is fine. Don was flying his airplane from Atlanta to Greensboro, North Carolina, to drop off a friend. One of the guys he works with has a son who is in a soccer tournament with an important game Friday night, and Rody couldn't get there in time so Don volunteered to take him. Well, he had a problem with his landing gear and the nose gear collapsed on landing. No injuries, actually Don says it was much less exciting than you'd think (good news, huh?). Rody took pictures of the whole thing and has them up on a website, so here's the link.

And some good news. I heard from Steve! He talked to Don and left a message for me. He says he's doing fine and having fun, but I'll give you three guesses what the rest of the message was:
a) I love you
b) I miss you
c) Send 48 brownies, half with nuts and half not, to the last mail drop.
Yep, you got it, it was a brownie call. Nice to be needed, huh? Here's how to get to his trip log so you can see what they are doing.
