spending the week at my apartment down in Portland (well, technically Hillsboro)
getting ready for my trip, I drove up to Bellingham a few days ago to celebrate Easter
weekend with my Dad and my sister, Doti. As an added bonus, my older
brother Don was in town, visiting from Connecticut.
On Saturday, my Dad, Don, and I played a round of
golf at the 18-hole course here. Don was one of the best golfers in Michigan when he was in high
school and, believe it or not, he even beat Johnny Miller in a high school tournament once. Now,
though, Don only plays when he comes out to Bellingham and, despite
not touching a club in a long time, he usually beats those of us who've spent
countless hours at the driving range. Sure enough, Don beat us both this
Saturday night, Doti got a thrill as she does every Easter weekend by coloring
and hiding Easter Eggs. Holidays just wouldn't be the same in our family

You da man!
