Hello...we are in Bloomington at the swim meet through late Saturday night. Yes, I know, there have been no posts, photos, or newsy bits and my only excuse is that we have tried. We have tried from the hotel (not my choice as it is where the team is staying and let's say that fancy internet connections were not a top priority in the reservation procedures, being more important to be located near the pool and all). The advertisement for "free high speed internet" was obviously written in the stone age and believe me, there is nothing high speed about it, taking about five or six minutes to just get one email to load and read. I am not really all that patient with such...especially when there are things to do, people to see, places to go, etc., down here in Hooville. We have even tossed the computers in the car and driven around to various cafes with free internet, etc. and I still can't get a photo to download and post with the written blog, so I will just wait until I return north on Sunday and post both photos and prose together.
Have a great week...tomorrow morning Matt's 100 Backstroke will be about 9:45 a.m., so please think positive thoughts for him...he has his hopes up way too high...if he makes it, I will try to post a quick line in the afternoon.
