FAMILY TIES
My brother arrived last night! :) :) I haven't seen any of my family since June of 2002, so I'm pretty happy about it. I drove down to pick him up at the ferry terminal in Trelleborg. What a confusing, aggravating place!! The signage is worthless or non-existant. Anyway, he got there and we got home at around 8:30 p.m. Anders is taking him to a track day on the Ducati today and we're going to an AWC picnic tonight. Tomorrow we're going to a county fair, of all things, although compared with REAL (read: American) county fairs, it's a faint pathetic copy. But it's at Bosjökloster which is worth a trip anytime.

I'm still not 100% recovered from this stupid cold, but well enough to contemplate going out and sitting on the grass tonight in what had better be late summer sunshine.

Have a great time. You must be really excited to see him again. Fingers crossed that this glorious weather continues...

That ferry terminal rules! I brought in my Mini that way. I tried to figure out how to do it right and get papers and taxation and crap going, but got so confused and pissed off that finally I just decided to pretend to be a British tourist and drove straight through, waving in my friendliest way to the angrily flagging customs person.

Did you yell "Cheerio!" as you passed? LOL!

Don't remember. Quite possible. And I was wearing my tweed sports jacket. Besides, only the British are crazy enough to drive a Mini from England to Sweden. (And I'm talking about the original Mini, not one of those new-fangled things.)
