|Well, Ariane finally made it to good old PA, just in time for my niece Maggie's Christening. Things here in PA have been going well, we pretty much have been eating (lots of pierogis, potato pancakes, and other NE PA favorites) and drinking (Yuengling Lager) our days away as we watch the clock tick away to Tuesday when we take off for Hong Kong. We took advantage of our time here and managed to get our teeth cleaned by Poppa Tom and I scored a new do, compliments of Ariane. The Rutt / O'Brien / Modrovsky's clans all celebrated the Christening of Maggie this past Saturday in true Irish Catholic fashion. All in all about 65 people showed up for the party, it was a grand time. Tomorrow it is off to NYC to visit with college friend Colette and then Tuesday it is bon voyage. Yikes!! I guess I should start packing!
