Brooks and Linda came up for the weekend. It was a nice visit and for once we did not have any projects lined up for them to help us with. We are 2/3 done with the small bathroom but as there is no room for more than one person in there working, we put that project on hold until tomorrow when we will grout and cut new baseboard.

We were talking about vacations and their need of one so we decided to all go together to Cuba in October for Brooks' 40th birthday. We looked for a deal on the Internet but could not find any really good deals so we will keep watching. It will just be eight days as they cannot leave their business for too long. Brooks and Linda have been there before so know their way around. We will have an all inclusive in Veradaro and leave for a couple of nights in a B&B in Havana. I will get to see Hemingway's chair in the El Floridita bar, another thing to check off the "Bucket List". If you look closely at the first photo you can see "Papa's" statue at the far end of the bar.

Here is Papa's statue in front of a photo of Hemingway and Fidel Castro:

The chair beside him is where I will order a mojito!
