A test she passed, even with the addition of a minute treading water.  Of course after that we spent most of our time in the deep end.

Tonight after the house had gone to bed I was sitting with Ruby and relaxing, and I realized that I haven’t had a beer in all of my father’s day beer glasses. As luck would have it I had a beer sitting in the fridge waiting for me to enjoy.

JacobandhisCraftingoftheMind

Tonight I had an appointment at the Microsoft Answer Bar for some warranty service. The service was excellent as always, and Jacob seemed happy to spend the appointment entertaining himself on the different computers and XBox around the store. He can’t wait till he goes for Microsoft Camp in a couple of weeks.
