I said I would try to catch up the post, and since we leave for Ragbrai Friday and I’ll be wanting to post about that adventure, here’s the catch-up post!
When Amy and I left England, we left Glenda behind with BF Sam for another week. We flew to JKF, then Atlanta where we got a short visit in with my brother who was recovering from surgery. Then a quick drive home to Nashville, where son #2 had arrived from New Zealand. If you’ve been reading the post for a while, you’ll remember that Sam introduced us to the NZ treat Tim Tam cookies (2 chocolate covered graham cookies with creme between). The Tim Tam Slam has the added feature of dipping a corner of the cookie into hot chocolate and sucking the liquid through the cookies, completely disintegrating the whole chocolate gooey mess…
Then we took the bus up to Gallatin for a trial run to a family get-together. Aden went with us and we spent a delightful day catching up with relatives.
We played a bit with Amy’s hair, thanks to Shannon and her magic touch, and as I write this blog Glenda (who made it home from England) is in the chair having her turn going red/orange/yellow! Pics to come.
Last night we did yet another trial bus run – friends Emily and John, Shannon and the boys, Mike and brother Casey hopped in for a quick drive to dinner.
So that brings us to now, at Shannon’s hair salon, still trying to get everything ready for Ragbrai. The next blog should be Ragbrai-oriented as we leave Friday at 4. Bus is great with the new turbo engine, and I’ll post pics of this years improvements.
Thanks for reading!

Have I mentioned that your travel schedule is completely unfair?
Have fun! Where’s Ragbrai, anyway?
