Next stop: Charlotte.  It's always good to visit with my brother Henk and his family.  Unfortunately, this time the kids were gone at camp so I missed them...but it was also nice to have just grown-up time together.

In addition to spending time with Henk & Julie, I had several missions.  One was to straighten out the mess with my bank accounts being frozen.  That was making life decidedly difficult.  It took several hours of phone calls, faxing and scanning...but finally they gave me access to my accounts again.  My new ATM card was waiting for me when I got to Charlotte so I'm back on track!  And I did my patriotic duty by bolstering the economy on my brief visit to Charlotte since I was heading to the far north which meant a complete change of wardrobe. At REI I bought new clothes, wool socks, and a down sleeping bag, new undies at Nordstroms, a haircut and pedicure...I think I'm good to go!

We also enjoyed several incredible meals, not the least of which was a steak dinner grilled at home.  Julie is a fantastic cook and I always eat very well when I visit with them.  And the gimlets went down pretty easy as well! 

On Tuesday Henk & I headed to the airport where he caught a flight to Vegas for a little vaca with Julie and I headed to JFK.
