Turkey Day in Atlanta

I know it is a bit late, but I am posting pictures from our trip to Atlanta for Thanksgiving. It was an excellent trip, and everyone had a great time.
Since Bonnie’s folk’s house was already pretty full, we took advantage of a kind offer and stayed at our friend Ruth’s condo in Buckhead. It was very nice. Not only that, we drove Ruth’s very cool red pickup while we were there as well. What a deal.

The day was warm and beautiful; (unlike the weather here in Seattle); we spent most of the day out on the back deck (the picture is Bonnie's dad, Jerry).

Thanksgiving in Atlanta is always great, as we know we can count on seeing lots of family and friends. This year was made even better by the fact that Bonnie’s Uncle Michael (and wife Allisanne plus daughters Moli & Mandy) came down from Wisconson. Moli’s mom was not too pleased that I started her daughter's training as a bartender, but Moli cleared $31.00 in tips and had a new drink named after her!

Where in the World Are We Going?

One of the things that Bonnie and I like about my job is that we never know where it will take us, or when. I got word this week that my assignment in Seattle will be wrapping up just before Christmas.

This was not quite what we had planned, but, hey, that’s the life of a contractor. So we have put our plans to go sailing with friends Iain and Ruth on hold while we line up the next client.

So far no idea what or where we will be doing, but watch this space, I will let you know as soon as I do!
