Sleepy Jack

A full day got him down for his nap late. Still conked out even with
some music playing in the other room.

Oh yes, he's got some cornhusker in him

Watching Jack attack a bowl of corn makes me sure the Nebraska genes are good an alive in him. The only thing missing is a Go Big Red T-Shirt!

My latest love

I have been having an immense affair with my coffee lately. It should come as absolutely no surprise that this love also comes from Panama. Lavinia recently brought me about 10 pounds of it and I was so giddy.

The cofffee is called Kotowa and is from the famed MacIntyre farm that won all the awards in 2006 SCAA World Competition.





The coffe has great taste and brews well. I'd offer you some but I just find it to precious to share. Panama seems to produce some of my biggest loves. I mean just get me started on coconut water and you'll fund out.

An Old Friend Gets Married

This last weekend I saw one of my oldest and bestest friends get married. I was really excited to be included at this small event. Tim and Jocelyn made some great choices, both the venue and the meal was excellent.

I met Tim when I was in second grade and we've been friends ever since. He is a year older than me, but we spent a lot of time together. I collected comics with Tim, learned how play sports, ride a bike and all sorts of stuff. Tim and I went to daycamp at the Ballard Boys & Girls Club and even both started working there eventually in High School.

It has been a long time since those days. Tim has two great sons from another marriage. He's worked hard to get to where he is. He's done right by his sons. He's just started up a new business as well. I am so very happy for him because he truly deserves the happiness that I feel his marriage to Jocelyn will bring.

The event for me was even more fun because I was to catch up with his family, mainly his Mom & Dad and his younger brother Scott. Scott will be joining the married group later this year himself.

Spending a night with Tim and his friends and family makes me realize how much we need to cherish the relationships we've invested in all these years. If you have an old friend you haven't talked to in a while give him/her a ring. I'll bet you'll be glad you did.

Sunny Seattle

Lavi has been enjoying the beach in Panama this week and we are jealous. Well today Jack and I headed for passes as a beach in Seattle. A fun day. We saw lots of boats. Threw rocks in the water. Said hello to doggies out for a walk. Watched people play some serious beach volleyball and Syed on the playground.

In the pictures below you can see that although at the beach we were still dressed like it was winter.
