Vancouver - Day 5

Chris and I had the morning to ourselves while Alice and Elizabeth shopped at Metrotown.  We outlined Bad Uncle, talked about family matters, and shared a few stories of our parents as a means of brewing up ideas for our present project.  When I'm home I'll put in place a rough outline that Chris and I can fill out.

We watched the Seahawks/Redskins game in the afternoon.  The Hawks overcame a 14-point deficit to win the game 24-14.  Very impressive.  For dinner, we went over to Chris Jr. and Natalie's condo in the city.  Their place is warm and comfortable with a spectacular view of Vancouver and the mountains.  We ate at the Afghan Horseman a few blocks away.

Very good and very full!

It was delicious.  Chris and I mentioned hosting an unsung heroes party for our cousins in the summer.  All aunts and uncles are welcome!  I've love to see a few cousins I haven't seen in years...Lisa, Bobby and Leo.  Kim and Gwen would be all over it.

After dinner, we drove back to Chris and Elizabeth's where we watched the two-hour season premiere of Downton Abbey.  The intrigue and melodrama sometimes border on the contrived, but it's still a lot of fun to watch Maggie Smith deliver her signature lines.  Sad to see the Bates storyline completely stalled in prison, but delighted to see Mary attempt to self-sabotage her wedding over a 20-second conversation that by its very nature demands a series of discussions and debates.  The petulant, quixotic Mary is much more preferable to season two's calm, reasonable Mary.

Bed at 12:30, late for us.

Federal money would almost certainly bring a demand that the railroads, in exchange for accepting general tax funds, open their tracks to every Tom, Dick, and UPS that wants to just run trains. [url=]Celebrity Dresses[/url]

I've worn the black jeans with shiny black loafers before (the type with a metal bit on top) but feel more comfortable in the brown ones. Still, skeptics branded it a Bratpfanne, or frying pan. A basic evening pant suit consists of well-cut trousers and a matching coat or jacket. His strong jaw can crack bamboo in half with little effort.
