Read My Lips, We Refueled in Iceland

Okay, not my first posting since my world fell apart, but I just spent 15 minutes typing and the laptop freaked out and erased it all.  So, my update on recent exciting events will be posted later when I am no longer throttling the blasted 'time-saving' device.

In other news, Pete had to work late tonight.  Heck, he still isn't home and it is 11:08 in the PM.  Okay, so that is 6:00 p.m. for most of you and not really that late. 

So, the question of the day:  What on earth could make Pete have to work late?  Why, Bushie Sr. stopped in Keflavik to refuel and couldn't leave without shaking Pete's hand.  Now, I am no fan of Jr., but Sr. is such the grandfatherly type that I certainly won't begrudge Pete's inner Republican. 

So, George H.W. stopped to get more gas for the plane and mingled with a select few in Iceland.  And just in case you are wondering, nope, not the first time Pete has met him.  He had also stopped in Venezuela a few times for fishing expeditions and Pete  made his acquaintance on those occasions.

Last, but not least, Caitlin has a new nickname:  fish.  Yep, she holds her breath and swims underwater!  We truly thought the day would never come but after only three months of lessons she is doing extraordinarily well.  Guess that is what happens when you are taught by a former member of the Icelandic Olympic swim team?
