Rose – 24 hours with our family . . . mild August weather . . . eating bread from The Family Crumb . . . launching GrandpaLyle’s Notebook.
Thorn – separation from our Chicago family . . . missing the opening of my friend, Vince Bryan’s play, How Can I Love You.
Bud – learning how to use WordPress for more than just the primitive work you see here . . . a wonderful weekend with our Arkansas family.
