Surprise!

Yesterday morning Norma asked me if I knew what was happening with my niece, Robin from Lacombe, Alberta. Her and George spend part of the winter in Mazatlan and we have not heard from them in a while. A few hours later the phone rang and it was Robin asking if we were home! They had left Hermasillo, MX yesterday morning and were in Tucson. We told them to stop in and in two hours they were here.

Robin is my late brother's daughter and her and I have always had a close relationship even though we do not see each other very often and George is always a lot of fun! We brought each other up to date on our respective winters over a couple of drinks and then Norma and Robin made dinner while George and I spoke of manly things on the patio.

It was a great evening and was over much too soon! We found them a room in a nearby hotel and they left at about 10:00. Maybe we will see them this summer.
