I heard back from my brother today. It was a just a brief note, but he says he "gets" my point. I think we're OK for now. It's not over, as I told him yesterday they could change the plans we originally made if they wanted to, but I wasn't go... Read more

I had a lunch invitation at the last minute today from my friend, Leslie. She rarely ventures out in the winter, but we had an unseasonably warm day and she decided to come up to the mall near me to return something. My first impulse was... Read more
