Here are a few of our favorite photo memories, taken with my new digital point and shoot that is tiny enough to slip in my pocket.
Dinner with Sue
Sue and I have been matched by Big Brothers, Big Sisters since January 2003. While in KC we went for a celebratory barbecue dinner. Sue has earned a 4-year scholarship to attend one of the best private high schools in Kansas City. Yeah, Sue!
The Cleveland area was full of traffic jams caused by adolescent Canadian geese and their proud mamas. The geese are not quite old enough to fly yet, so must cross the road in packs, much to the dismay of local drivers who are trying to get to wherever they are going!
Le Boutique Target
If I could only shop at one store while in the US, I would select Target. Fortunately there are no limits on consumerism in the US and I also visited Ann, Eddie and Jill. As in Ann Taylor, Eddie Bauer and J. Jill! All of them open seven days per week.
Cereal Aisle Although I couldn't fully indulge because we stayed at a hotel, while at the grocery store I made a visit to the cereal aisle. I really miss the cereal aisle. The Coop and Migros have a pretty pathetic selection. By the way, this is just a portion of it because there is too much to fit in one picture. The cereal options cover the entire length of the aisle on both sides.
We could not believe the size of the "Red, White and Blue" dessert on the menu. Even by American standards, it was gargantuan. My brother-in-law and the waiter posed with it to give you an idea of the size. We easily split it between 6 people!
And finally, I was able to get caught up on all the celebrity gossip.
