(no subject)

Yesterday my brother was in town for a few hours between planes. After work I picked up L and we headed off to the airport through the wind, rain and rush-hour traffic. The plane was 45 minutes late, so we waited for a while in the lobby of the airport hotel until my brother arrived. It had been 3 years since I last saw him, but he hadn't changed noticeably. We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant, and talked about family, what we had been doing recently, genealogy and 9/11. He is living in Florida with his son who is attending college, but his work as a consulting engineer takes him all over the world. It was good to see him again; we keep in touch through email, but don't often get the chance to visit in person. After dinner, he boarded his flight to Lethbridge, where he will be visiting our dad and doing some genealogical research
