- I spent a wonderful day with Kathleen and the kids canoeing and swimming in the the Saco River, swimming at the hotel pool, eating a huge and delicious meal at the xxx restaurant, laughing at a few episodes of Frasier, and watching some of the Olympic Games.
- I'm sad to think that they well be going back home tomorrow, but I'm buoyed that I'll be home in a matter of just a few weeks.
