Brian's Fabulous Intermission

This is Marjie's little brother, Brian, again. A few posts ago Marjie expressed some annoyance (and perhaps a little concern) that I had stopped commenting on her blog for a few days. The truth is that I was doing a little traveling myself, and I thought I would tell Marjie about it in "Glob Post" form so that I could simultaneously make all of her other readers jealous of how fabulously well traveled Marjie's whole family is.

I went to Spokane, Washington, for a few days to visit my mother-in-law. For those of you unfamiliar with Spokane, Washington, rest assured that it's just slightly less fabulous than New York. Probably a close number two for fabulousness. Just as an example, Spokane is home to the world's largest Radio Flyer wagon. (Eat your heart out, Museum or Modern Art!)

Kristi and I brought our mountain bikes and along with Kristi's mom, Bonnie, we rode along the Centenial Trail, which connects Washington and Idaho and I think part of Montana. (But we didn't go quite that far).

We also saw a raccoon, ate at a Red Robin, and one morning we had some very American yogurt (which we enjoyed because we don't know any better).

We didn't have any humbao, not even squished.

Well, that's all for my report. Hope I didn't steal too much of Marjie's thunder. Now I'll return you back to your regularly scheduled programme...

Brian, you know I am going to find a bigger Radio Flyer in New York. Everything is bigger and better here. And I can top your raccoon story, but you'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Oh so jealous... is that a SLIDE off the Radio Flyer?! Oh, wait, though. I can play this game. I went to Olympia... does that count? My parents have toilets made into flower pots? Sorry, no pics for proof. Marjie, I am sure you can find some toilets in NYC with a lot more interesting things than flowers...
