New Kid in Town

Todd moves in...on the ladies

Big Head Todd arrived today

George.jpg

and it did not take long
for the ladies to start falling

There was some hand holding

and then when the kissing began
the two needed to be separated

It is a shame that Al is not home to have a little talk with Todd and tell him how things work around here.....
he should at least take Lammie on a picnic first!

Dining in Amsterdam

Genever Anyone?

It took Al a while to find his way around Amsterdam.
Even with a map the city had a strange layout with all of the canals.

Fortunately there were lots of places to stop for coffee
(sometimes served with a StroopWaffel cookie)

Or a beer

The popular spots like the Pancake house sometimes required a wait

Once Al made it to the table the hardest part was getting him away from the syrup

But eventually we could get him back on the bike

Until he convinced us to stop for another beer…..

Flying First Class

Champagne Anyone

Al loves flying business class- as far as he is concerned it is FIRST CLASS!

It starts out with champagne in the Lounge. Any time he can get into the lounge he does. This time we got in on a legitimate business class ticket, and not charm or the use of a friends and family pass. The lounge is always the most civilized part of the airport and a reprieve from the chaos beyond the gatekeepers.

Al has a special carry on pocket so he can see what is happening as we board the plane. He likes to get on early and plan is trip.....

What to eat....

What games to play....

And what movies to watch.

He likes the window seat so he can look out the window

And is a little embarrassed to admit that the plane food was actually pretty good (it was business class after all)

Al especially appreciated the lagniappe that KLM provides to their world business travelers- a little delft house with a sip of Genever inside. It began as a tradition in the 1950's. to provide the last drink of the flight that continues today.

Al is petitioning to always travel business class internationally from now on.

Martie is moving

PA to VA

Martie has not had much time to get used to living in Pennsylvania
As soon as he moved to Landenberg
he was put to work- sorting
to prepare for the move to Virginia

90_marti_sorts.jpg

He was able to carve out some time
to hang with his Peeps

90_Marti_and_his_peeps.jpg

His big concern is that he will still be able to find his favorite snack,
Smarties (a.k.a. martie's.smarties)
once he gets to Richmond so he has been tucking them away in some of the moving boxes

Tripod and Friends

Tripod is making a home in Williamsburg Virginia-

He spends time reading

0302131025.jpg

But he especially loves to pack his suitcase and go adventuring (he gets that from Al)

Tripod's favorite part of traveling is coming home to his friends

90_home_again.jpg

And sleeping in his own bed

Where he can dream about where he is going to go next!
