          Very uneven experience (read the blog entries)

          Old Saint Francis School is just that -- a renovated school. We present an issue for the hotel -- we are staying two nights but they need us to switch rooms. Tonight we are in a suite -- and the bathroom (a large room in its own right) featured TWO claw-foot soaking tubs. Of course, we had to take baths-- it seriously looked like a Cialis ad. It's pricey but elaborately furnished with heavy, dark wood and fabrics (in fact, the lights are dim and the place is so dark it's hard to read). There are several restaurants, a movie theater and a Turkish bath on the grounds. It is themed around the school's history, featuring pertinent photos, religious art and murals of the school children and their memories. Unusual.

          If you have never been to a McMenamins hotel before put it on your bucket list. It is quirky, with outstanding service. We enjoyed a movie and a burger all in the comfort of a couch. (i'm talking BIG screen) Finished with a soaking pool.

It was so great to see them - Yurik seems very happy most of the time, and enjoyed sitting in his stroller while we went around to a few more consignment shops. Then Tori left us, and we went back to shower and change. Mary Dawn got her tragus pierced where Elektra works, Star Fire. Met Chance & Elektra for dinner ...

          Thursday, July 11th, our last day… able to take a train straight into Charles De Gaulle airport, how more convenient can it all be. Delta took off with about a 11 am Paris time and after 10 hours it landed in Seattle at… 2 PM. Made it to Bend by 6:30 pm in time for a light stir fry ...

          It has also been incredible to experience the encouragement and enthusiasm from a lot of people overseas that I'll be working with. A reverend and head of a youth ministry in Malawi, Africa that I'll be volunteering with emails me almost every other day with new pictures of his country and warm comments for my family. I'm working on collecting some items like old sport jerseys, ...

Basically those damn records moldering in my garage in a box might be worth more than I paid for them so many years ago. But of course I do not own a turn table, not one of those slick $5,000 jobbies that real audiophiles seem to own, or the $100 record player with the needle the size of a pencil lead that ...
