OK, so I just read all the airport posts and I got a little weepy. Anyone who knows me knows that is hardly unusual - in fact, a day without a tear is usually a day without a connection for me. But who knew the blog could be that! Thanks so much and thanks particularly to Lori for the shout-out!

And now...the photo I know you have all been waiting for....the picture of my daughter Tess' lunchbag (presented by her daughter, sometimes also referred to as her son, "Botsy").
