Packing... Again!

Since we last spoke, we went with a group of friends via private shuttle bus to a wine tasting about 30 minutes from here. It was a great evening, but... I unfortunately forgot to bring my camera. Sorry 'bout that. Then, last weekend, we went to Paris. No, I did NOT forget my camera this time. You can view some of the pictures by clicking... right... HERE.

Paris, as usual was great. We relaxed well, ate well, and shopped well. I came home with some new shirts and bathing suits, and Mrs. TBF came home with a new handbag, a new pair of sunglasses, and probably other things that I just can't remember at this time. We had such a good time, in fact, that we booked another trip to Paris for February while we were online in the lounge at our hotel.

Right now, I'm taking a break from packing for our next trip: Chicago. The main reason for the trip is to attend my 25th college reunion. However, I'm sure that I'll have time for family and friends too. Mrs. TBF will fly over with me, head off on a business trip next week, come back to Chicago for my reunion, and then head off on business again the following week. If all goes according to plan, she will depart for London from the East Coast around the same time I am departing for London from Chicago, and then we'll meet up in London for the flight back to Basel. But enough about that...

I still can't believe that I GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE MORE THAN 25 YEARS AGO!!! Sheesh!

Have a great time in the windy city! Boy, I'd sure love to hit Wal-Mart right about now for a restocking of supplies. ;-)

Enjoy your 25th reunion.. time sure flies. Hope you guys pull off that complicated flying in sync with Mrs. TBF's even more complicated schedule.

Hey, I was at the NU reunion, too! (Not 25th though.) Great game! I flew in for it because I've just moved back to the states from London and had to get my stuff out of storage anyway. It was fun seeing everyone, but too short. How was the turnout for the 25th?

Devon - I would say there were 200 - 300 people there. I'm not really sure if that's considered a good turnout or not, but it was a lot of fun. Next year, we'll go back for Mrs. TBF's (WCAS '85) reunion.

Your blog came up as I am searching for bed frames for a queen size bed. Living in Geneva and bought new mattresses before we moved - forgot to buy a frame for the guest room. Any chance you have any suggestions?

Sandra - A frame for an American queen size bed? Sorry... no idea.
