The Usual Goings On…

March 29th, 2008 by Ian

After those two long posts by “the oldies” I can’t say nothing….can I?

I have not been to the South recently, I have not been to Mexico.  In mid-April though I’ll be going to San Jose for a business conference.  Shelley will be coming down to join me at the end of the week and we’re going to spend a long weekend in San Francisco — she’s never been there and I’ve been there probably 8 times.  We have a tour to Napa planned, but we won’t have a car so we’re just going to cab around and see what we can find in the city for the most part.  The hotel is near Union Square so there should be some good shopping.

There was talk of me going on a business trip to Switzerland after I got back from San Francisco, but that fell through.  I’m still on the list to go the next time…probably inside the year.

This September (and the following two Septembers) the big GPS show, “ION” will be in Savannah, Ga, so I will likely be heading there in the next little while.  Shelley swears she will be attending that one too.

The rest of life has been “more of the same” really.  The weekend before Easter I painted Quinn’s room.  It was that horrible bright orange and took 5 coats of paint cover.  It’s now primary blue on two walls and primary red on the other two.  Nice and relaxing.  Then Shelley’s sister and family were here for Easter.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks I guess.  Today, I get to pick up Quinn’s new desk/wall unit for his room a put it together (Ikea!)

Dylan is currently out with his girlfriend’s family (Katrina) at their cabin near Fairmont Hot Springs.  It’s actually in the same development where Silner’s and Wiebe’s had cabins on Columbia Lake.  He’s been struggling a little at school lately.  Math has never been his strong suit and he’s making the final push to get through Pure Math 30.  Honestly, he brings me questions that take ME an hour to work out — but he’s starting to buckle down and get it done.  3 months, that’s all.

Not much else to say.  We haven’t heard from Scott much.  I assume he’s still alive down there on the bottom of the world.  Say something!
