Coming Home

Between weather
and time constraints
we've been driving straight through
from California.

And it's good to be home.

We are still speaking--
with thanks to
Radio Lab (which allowed me to make interesting
conversation about hook worms
during dinner in Oklahoma City)
Fresh Air podcasts, The Moth, and This American Life.

I only made it through one half a book (of the three I brought with me)
however, we enjoyed the audio versions of
Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornsby and the very long,
less enjoyable
State of Fear.

Some missing highlights--

We ate at this west coast destination.

It was fun...but we're not sure
what all the fuss is about.

Todd has become a Lil' Ranger
even though he's trying to keep it
top secret

I was charmed by the Murray Street Cafe
which we stumbled upon in Dallas

But we've decided, there's no place
like Baltimore.

Happy New Year!!!
