All Home!

Saturday Night

Friday Mrs. Dr. Phil flew in and called home safe and sound at her dad's old house in Chicago. She and her stepmom Pat spent nearly 3 weeks in Nicaragua with a GVSU business and engineering design program. They were really tired. Debbie then took the train to Holland Saturday, arriving exactly on time at 9:21pm.

Home! Or at least at the train station.

Since she had a decompression day in Chicago -- and was still essentially on Central STANDARD Time -- Nicaragua doesn't bother with Daylight Saving Time being at 12° N -- we copied all 616 photos she'd shot on Wendy's Canon SureShot onto a USB Swiss Memory then plugged it into the Sony 32" Bravia and we watched them all.

Sunday Morning

We dispensed with all alarms, but eventually got up and had our Sunday morning downstairs with banana, bagel and newspaper. Last weekend I realized that the lily of the valley out underneath the back deck had flowered -- the scent wafting in from the open windows -- and luckily Mrs. Dr. Phil didn't miss them.

Fragrant lilies of the valley peeking out from under the lush foliage. (Click on photo for larger.)


Around noon it was 56°F -- 35 degrees cooler than Sunday. AC shut off, again. Will have to consider heat tonight, again.
