Rachel and I just got back from Portland on Tuesday night. It was an awful drive that I wouldn’t want to revisit. The rain was the worst I have seen it in a long time making for very slow driving. On the up side this was the 510′s longest trip to date, she ran like a champ! On the way down we even averaged 29 miles per gallon. The 510 is a bit dirty from the trip! I added a wreath this winter for Xmas spirit!
Rachel has been hard at work on some little monster stuffed animals for friends at work the last few days. They are a lot of work but sure are funny and cute.I think Rachel is going to try and make some different designs soon. I am hoping she will make me one with two heads and a tail.
We spent Xmas with Rachel’s family in Portland this year. I have never seen so much Norwegian food in my life. The food was tasty and Norwegians drink almost as well as the Irish so I felt right at home! My favorite part of Christmas dinner was when Rachel’s 90 Year old Grandma slammed back a shot of aqvavit (I think that’s Norwegian for gasoline). I also swapped android phone nerd knowledge with Rachel’s mom which was a blast.
Happy New Year!
