Over the summer Scott and I took a day-long class that taught us how to drive a Model T Ford. It was an absolute blast. By the end of the day we were literally driving 90-to-100-year-old cars around the grounds of the Western Antique Aeroplane a... Read more

Quick update: I am now on the phones at work, and did, indeed, get to keep my lovely window view cubicle. Well, I guess "lovely" is a stretch, but compared to being stuck in a windowless cubicle.... Move in yesterday and set up some thing... Read more

This isn't going to be a long one. But I wanted to thank you all for your kind thoughts and words yesterday. MIL seems to be doing better. When we went to see her she actually spoke about three words and the swelling had gone down considerabl... Read more
