Ron took me. I am speechless about the whole thing. It was perfect. I spent the whole time amazed by the experience. Not describable. Not at all. Wow.
This should be the end of the entry, but the day was even more full.
I got news this morning that I got in to the sold out workshop. A bit of panic, but I trotted off to the center of town, found a bus stop, a student at the local university to help me get on the right bus a wonderful bus driver to direct me, and there I was - on time even! No problem!
Then tonight we went out to find a pub. We found one and I got quite soused watching a soccer game on the big screen. However, while searching for the perfect pub we ran into the Australian rugby team twice. They were hard to miss, in their suits with funny tasseled hats on top of their heads. The police escort and no parking zones also marked them well as they walked from an official function to and from their big Australian bus. Big team. Good looking team. They also went to the pump room.
I think I enjoyed it more. What a day!
And I didn't mention my visit to the sewing machine dealership, did I? Maybe tomorrow. They were great people as well.
