Hubert comes to town

This was a wonderful weekend. Hubert, a friend from my days working at Philips Medical in Holland, came for a weekend visit. After spending a good part of the week in San Jose, CA, he willingly chose to fly to the frozen tundra of Madison for a weekend stay. Go figure.

It was a good time (at least I hope...), as we took Hubert for a typical Friday night fish fry, walked down State Street on Saturday, visited the capital and walked out on Lake Monona for this perfect winter scene so typical of Madison.

The grand finale was a Superbowl Party on Sunday where Hubert was able to meet about 20 or so of our Madison friends. They (and we) came to eat some of Raine's awesome food creations, a bit of my Yankee Gumbo and watch a little American football. Definitely a good time had by all.

Today Hubert left for Chicago, to visit the windy city for a day before flying back to Germany.

This visit from a good Dutch friend, reinforced to me the importance of friendship. Good friends are so worth keeping and doing everything you can to maintain the relationship. Maybe our next meeting with Hubert and his wife will be on a sunny Greek isle for a relaxing vacation!
