I’m signing off for about a week. Colette, Max, and I are headed off on his civics club's trip. The plans involve: educational sightseeing, staying together in a large rented house, tasty food, s’mores with our homemade marshmallows (plain and coconut), and a little rain (so the forecast says). On the way home? The three of us are stopping in New York City! A full report will follow!
