Weekend Highlights:

In Palm Springs at Gary and Karla (JB's parents) at their winter house, in a very nice private club for a weekend of relaxing, catching up, and various sports. G & K were such gracious hosts, putting all of the club amenities at our disposal: tennis courts, swimming pools, and even inviting us to order whatever we wanted from the club bar and restaurant. Which, naturally, immediately led to:

Ext Day. JB and Adam poolside, mid afternoon.

"Gentleman, would you like anything to drink?"
"Yes. A Long Island Iced Tea. [pause] And make it a double. [pause] And subsitute everything but the ice with Macallan."

Actually, I had an Arnold Palmer. I was going to swim some laps, and besides we had been on a bike ride up this great big climb earlier that morning, so I was trying to rehydrate and put off the drinking for Margaritas were scheduled for after that pool. Even the tequila onslaught did not derail JB and I from our taking advantage of the late afternoon of our day of maximum fitness, as we followed them with a run and and tennis, followed by a night of movies and drinking.

Oddly enough, I was more sore than hungover the next day. The next day also happened to have 60 mph winds, which affected our tennis game. For the most part, it helped mine, which says a lot about my tennis game.

all in all, it was great to get out of LA for a few days. I am off to Europe to do the Haute Route with JB in a few weeks, and will be working pretty much non-stop until then. Thanks for tuning in!
