Birthday Boy at his party. The gymnastics place is his favorite spot on earth right now, so it was perfect to have his friends there for an afternoon of jumping around like monkeys. And, he collected food and donations for the local animal shelter to boot.

Knots. Looks so easy when the den leader does it. Not so much when you have to do it yourself!
(and, yes, I know. The photo was taken last night. It counts. According to my rules, anyway. And this is my game, so I get to make the rules up as I go.)

Not long after we left Horseshoe Bay and Marble Falls, we saw this herd of Longhorns contentedly munching in the field alongside the road. Until now, the only Longhorns I've seen outside of Royal Memorial Stadium have been at the zoo. Hook 'em!

Woke up this morning in Glasgow. 14 hours of airport/plane time, 45 minutes waiting for baggage/customs, 45 minutes driving home, 15 minutes at home and then 5 hours later, we arrive at Horseshoe Bay. Let the pampering and relaxation begin!!

I wandered around the inside of the main university building during the break in my sessions, and lo and behold, turned a corner and found the Cloisters! What a lovely surprise on a really beautiful fall day, and a fitting way to wrap up my Scotland trip.

Had fish and chips for lunch today at this pub across the street from campus. Apparently it is a fairly authentic pub. I don't know about that, but the three older gentlemen wearing wool sweaters, caps and scarves who stopped to chat with us seemed authentic enough!

For some reason, I always think of Thinner by Stephen King when I see cherry pie.
NOTE: for the record, I took the photo on Tuesday 10/14, but had issues with my laptop before I left the country for work that prevented me from posting it until today. I wrongly assumed we would have interwebs on the plane, and now is the earliest that I have been able to post. It will have to do.

OK, not the best practice for the first day, but I like this one waayy better than the original. Mostly, I was afraid I wouldn't get back to the hotel in time to upload the photo, so I did one before the reception. Should have waited.

Move along (for now). The project and the postings will begin on 10/10/09. I was going to do it on 10/15, but I like the idea of 10/10 better. Plus, I'll be at a wedding that day, so wedding pix are always good, right?
