Back from Decatur
We drove down to Decatur for Christmas with the Williams clan this year. There are more photos in the vacations section.

Tree is up
Sarah and I picked out our tree (and walked it home, which is always fun). But we waited for Robert to help decorate it.
I think we did a very nice job.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas :)

And Sarah gave me…
Not this huge wheel of cheese. Yes, I’ve been known to bring back a wheel of Gouda from Bonaire, but this is clearly too much cheese for one household.
Sarah gave me a cheese tasting at Cheesetique which was great fun.
And Jill, the owner and cheesemaster, noted they would be “cutting the cheese” today. It was a 55 pound wheel of Gruyere lovingly hand crafted.
So, of course, we went by to watch, taste and buy some. And I also picked up a bit more of a couple cheeses from the tasting.
More great tastes for my birthday!!!
That’s Jill taking the picture of the cutting. I imagine it will show up on the web site or in advertising for the next cheese cutting session.
The trick is to first score the rind then use the wire garrote to slice it half. Then you can use the open face to further slice it with the wire.
Robert gave me a perfect present this year: A&W Root Beer mugs.
He even picked up some ice cream so we chould have root beer floats in them.
Absolutely perfect! Great flavor treat from the past.
And photo by Robert, I was too focused on tasting it to think about taking a picture.

One of the many cool things Robert has done at UW is sign up as an intramural referee.
That got him trained up on the rules and reffing duties for volleyball and flag football.
It also got him paid (thank you Seattle for a more realistic minimum wage).
And it got him on the referee’s team: Staff Infection.
And they got to play in the intramural final in Husky Stadium (AKA Alaska Air Arena).
And They Won!!!
